Another big drop in California's unemployment rate. It fell again in February, dropping to 6.7 percent. That's the lowest rate since June of 2008.

The state has added 1.8 million jobs since the recovery began in 2010.

No place reflects the growth better than here in the Bay Area. We added 23,000 jobs here last month and the unemployment rate dropped in every Bay Area county.

San Mateo had the lowest rate at 3.5 percent unemployment.
