Monroe County January Unemployment Rates

Monroe County January Unemployment Rates

Monroe County's unemployment rate for January was 8.8 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.

He says the important thing is the rate is lower than it was last year.
