Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- The unemployment rate in Glendale bucked a two-month declining trend in January, jumping up 0.8%, and labor market consultants are attributing the rise to a number of reasons. Don Nakamoto, labor market specialist for the city of Glendale, said the sudden jump locally was caused in part by the new unemployment law that became effective Jan. 1. Gov. Gray Davis passed a law after Sept. 11 that raised unemployment benefits from $230 a week to $330 a week.
