Private job gains, public cuts keep North Bay unemployment unchanged in JulyAug. 19, 2011

High unemployment rates across the North Bay in July either were virtually the same as in June or a year before or barely edged upward, as private-sector job gains were offset by fewer government jobs, according to state figures released this morning.
