The June unemployment rate for Grays Harbor and Pacific counties was 6.4 percent, as usual among the highest rates in the state.

The rates are not adjusted for seasonal fluctuations. The May rates, revised for seasonal fluctuations, were 6.9 percent for both counties.

San Juan County, at 3.4 percent, was the lowest in the state, just below King County’s June rate of 3.7 percent.

The highest rate in June was 9.9 percent in Ferry County in the northeast corner of the state. Along with the Twin Harbors area, Clallam, Mason and Lewis counties all had rates above 6 percent in June.
