Georgia's Unemployment Rate Reaches a Record High--8.6&

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution the unemployment rate in Georgia reached 8.6% in January 2009---This is up considerably from the 4.9% in January 2008. This is a record high number--surpassing the 8.3% unemployment rate seen in Georgia during the early 1980's recession---And considering that the State's population has significantly grown, it means that the number of unemployed is far greater than what was seen in the 1980's.
