The unemployment rate for the North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota metro area in November, was the lowest it has been since April 2008, according to data released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Tuesday. The rate fell from 6.5% in October, and decreased nearly two points from the 8% recorded in November 2012.
