North Carolina Unemployment Rates To Be Released

County-by-county unemployment rates will be released Friday.

The recession pushed North Carolina's unemployment rate to 11.1 percent in January, a historic high. The January unemployment rate release also marked a year that the state's jobless rate has been stuck above its previous high.

The new report on unemployment rates comes on the heels of Thursday's commission meeting, the first for the new Employment Security Commission's chairman, Lynn Holmes.

Holmes was sworn in earlier this month.

    They shouldn't be released! It just effects the economy (stock market) and sends everyone into a panic. Keep this "under your hat" and no one will be the wiser.

    It will say it has gone down,but the reason is because of people being hired by the government for the census.Until something happens in northeastern NC I dont believe anything the government has to say.Seeing is believing.Not hearing or reading.
