(AP) Unemployment rates rose in 28 U.S. states last month, partly because more Americans started looking for work and not all of them found jobs.


The Labor Department says unemployment rates fell in 11 states and were unchanged in another 11.


Nationally, the unemployment rate remained 7.6 percent in June, even though employers added 195,000 jobs.


The rate stayed the same because more people began job searches but not all of them found work. The government doesn't count people as unemployed unless they are actively searching for work.


A similar dynamic occurred at the state level. Two-thirds of the states added jobs in June. Massachusetts, Maryland and Georgia were among the states where the unemployment rate rose even though they added jobs.
