NC Unemployment Down a Bit; Other States See Record Highs

The News and Record reports today that North Carolina’s unemployment rate in August was at 10.8%, a tenth of a percent lower than July’s statewide rate.

Meanwhile, CNBC reports that unemployment rates in some other states are reaching record highs:  these were California (12.2%), Nevada (13.2%), and Rhode Island (12.8%).  Michigan continues to lead the nation with a jobless rate of 15.2%.

As always, please remember Greensboro Public Library’s JobSkills offerings if you’re out of work and looking for a job.
