N.C. Unemployment is Looking a Little Better

Just a brief note that North Carolina’s unemployment rate fell in April to 10.8%, according to today’s News and Record.  This was down from 11.2% in February.

There are also hopeful signs for a downward trend nationally, as MSNBC reported today that April jobless rates declined in 34 of the 50 states.  However, the national rate still remains very high at 9.9%, and it’s expected to be years before we get back even close to full employment.

If you’re out of work and looking for a job, please remember that Greensboro Public Library has plenty of resources which may be of help.  We’ve just recently hired a new job counselor, Ms. Erica Saunders, and you can check out our online resources here.
