The department said Friday the 6.5 percent jobless rate for November is the lowest since it hit 6.1 percent in December 2008.

The largest month-over-month job decreases were in leisure and hospitality and financial services.

Job increases were reported in education and health services, manufacturing and trade, transportation and utilities.

The national unemployment rate in November was 7 percent.
