Remember this article from the Greensboro News record reported here on July 20, 2012?
From Doug Clark of the Greensboro News Record July 20, 2012.
“North Carolina loses or gains jobs in June, depending on which state numbers you believe, if any”
“North Carolina lost nearly 8,000 jobs in June from the previous month, the state’s Commerce Department reports this morning.”
“The unemployment rate held at 9.4 percent, but that was because the labor force decreased.”
“Note: There are two sets of numbers in the report. You will see some media reports stating the state gained 16,690 jobs in June.”
“Please weigh in on the credibility of these numbers.”
From the US labor Dept July 26, 2012.
“The largest increases in initial claims for the week ending July 14 were in California (+26,244), North Carolina (+11,948), Georgia (+8,372), Alabama (+4,148), and Oregon (+3,019)”
The unemployment rates for June by NC county will be released tomorrow.
