NC jobless rate down to 9.4 pct.

Posted: Updated:

North Carolina's jobless rate fell to 9.4 percent in February.

That's after thousands of North Carolina residents quit looking for work.

The state's unemployment rate is well above the national rate of 7.7 percent.

The state Commerce Department said 9,000 people entered the work force in January when the rate was 9.5 percent. That changed in February when 35,000 stopped looking or lost their jobs.
