New Leadership, More Jobs

The new leadership in North Carolina saw employment continue to rise throughout the last year. January's unemployment numbers show that the state gained over 17,000 jobs and improved from a 6.9% unemployment rate to 6.7%.

In fact, North Carolina is approaching the national average at 6.6% of North Carolin's population unemployed. Over 45,000 jobs were added throughout the last year, which equates to a 2.1 percentage point drop in the unemployment rate.

Keep an eye out for the Harnett county unemployment numbers this week. I know that with economically sound policies we can make NC break the national average for unemployment.
