North Carolina’s Jobless Rate Holds Steady at 10.8%

There was no increase in North Carolina’s month-to-month unemployment rate in September, the News and Record reported today.  The article also points out some “hopeful signs,” such as a slight decline in initial filings for unemployment insurance.

On the national scene, economist Paul Krugman also sounded “a smidgen of optimism” on his blog today, siting a steep rise in industrial production — a good sign for GDP during the 3rd quarter and hopes that the recession may finally be coming to an end.

As always, if you’re in the job hunt, please check out Greensboro Public Library’s Job and Career Information page.
