Thousands of residents in Butte County — more than 14,000 at last count — are without work.

That’s what state figures showed for the May unemployment statistics.

Some may just be furloughed and will be brought back when their employer is feeling more confident about the future.

But there are some who have flat out lost their jobs, and while they may be getting unemployment benefits, eventually they will have to start hunting for work.
