January Unemployment is 11.1% in N.C.

North Carolina’s January unemployment was 11.1%, up from December’s revised 10.9%, the News and Record reported today.

Before the current recession, the State’s previous high was 9.7%, recorded in March 1983.  According to the News and Record, that rate was surpassed in February 2009, and we haven’t dropped below that level since — just more evidence for the severity of the current downturn.
