In March, the Georgia unemployment rate was at 10%; today it is just beneath that mark, at 9.9%. While this margin is indeed slim, it’s the first time that Georgia’s unemployment rate was below 10% within the past two years—which is definitely something to celebrate.
dwindled to peek out beneath the 10% mark, it has only barely done so. Still, what this means is that the state has experienced job growth for a three-month in a row period, so things may be on the way up for sure. Job increases are largely due to the leisure and hospitality industries.
