WENATCHEE — This year’s cherry harvest, last year’s record apple crop and an improving construction industry continued to pump up employment in Chelan and Douglas counties in June.

The jobless rate here fell to 6.5 percent in June, a 0.3 percent drop from the same month last year, as more fruit pickers, fruit warehouse workers, truckers and construction workers found work in their respective sectors.
