Bronx Unemployment Hits 13.9%; Highest in City and State

Ouch. The Bronx unemployment rate jumped again, to 13.9% for December, compared to 13.1% in November and 9.5% in December of 2008, according the latest labor statistics coming out of the state department. And that's only counting those still actively looking for work.

The city's employment rate is 10.6%. Brooklyn's is 11.2%, Queens' is 9.3%, Manhattan's is 9%.
