“Guilford (Large NC County) appears on it’s way to a third consecutive year with annual jobless rates in double digits. Economists say that likely hasn’t happened since the Great Depression.”…Greensboro News Record December 2, 2011

“New, more-accurate estimates show North Carolina’s unemployment rate stayed above 10 percent throughout 2011, falling to 10.2 percent in January in a key election battleground state, the state Commerce Department reported today.”…Greensboro News Record March 14, 2012

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

From the Jefferson Post April 23, 2012.

“N.C. unemployment improves to 9.7 percent in March”

“Despite Ashe County’s early year jobs slide, the unemployment numbers across the rest of the state improved between February and March according to seasonally adjusted data released by the N.C. Department of Commerce last week.

N.C.’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell by .2 percentage points to 9.7 percent from February’s revised rate of 9.9 percent. The number of unemployed also decreased over-the-month, falling by 12,092 to 451,657.

“Since the start of the year, the rate has dropped three consecutive months,” said N.C. Department of Commerce Deputy Secretary Dale Carroll. “Over the year figures continue to show improving numbers with the private sector gaining more than 37,000 jobs. Finding North Carolinians work through our programs and services available at our local offices remains our priority.”

The number of people employed, seasonally adjusted, increased by more than 4,000 to 4,228,180 between February and March, and by 63,805 since March 2011. Year-over-year, the NC unemployment rate fell by .7 percent, from 10.4 percent in March 2011.

Over the month, the number of persons unemployed declined by 12,092, or 2.6 percent. The civilian labor force was relatively unchanged at 4,679,837.

Nationally, March’s unemployment rate decreased by .1 percent from February to 8.2 percent. The number of persons unemployed fell by 133,000, or 1 percent, while the civilian labor force declined by 164,000, or .1 percent.”
