DOWNTOWN — New national unemployment figures released Friday reflect a trend seen locally — the days of sweeping job cuts may be ending, experts say. Although unemployment figures rose nationally in May — from 8.9% to 9.4% — only 345,000 jobs were lost nationwide, about half the average over the last six months, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. The change was largely a result of a slowing pace of job cuts, which appears to have also occurred in Glendale and Burbank, experts said.
