KILLEEN-TEMPLE-FORT HOOD - The Texas Workforce Commission has released June 2014 figures, showing that cities throughout the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood area all saw increases in unemployment.

Temple’s unemployment rate increased from 4.5 percent in May 2014 to 5 percent in June.

Killeen climbed to 6.7 percent from May’s 6.6 percent.
