BAD NEWS ON THE JOB FRONT
BAD NEWS ON THE JOB FRONT
Georgia's unemployment rate continues to exceed the nation. The Georgia Department of Labor reported this morning that Georgia's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 10% in June—the 33rd consecutive month  it has exceeded the national rate, now 9.5%. There's a bit of good news—unemployment fell from 10.1% in May—but labor commissioner Michael Thurmond isn't seeing much silver lining. He says, ?Georgia's job market is showing signs of renewed deterioration. A sharp increase in the number of discouraged workers, rising long-term unemployment, increased new layoffs, and anemic job growth suggests that the fledgling economic recovery may be losing steam.?
