ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Labor released the record-breaking November jobs report for the state of Georgia on Thursday, Dec. 19.
The unemployment rate hit the lowest percentage in state history at 3.3%. The total number of jobs in Georgia also set a record high of 4.64 million jobs, and the number of employed Georgians achieved a record high of 4.96 million.
"Thanks to strong, conservative leadership at the State Capitol, Georgia continues to grow and prosper," Gov. Brian Kemp said. "Unemployment rates are at historic lows, workforce participation is at an all-time high and job creators have Georgia on their minds."
Kemp added, "To keep Georgia the best place to live, work and raise a family, we must support our small businesses, recruit projects of regional significance to our rural communities and dismantle criminal street gangs so our families are safe from harm. By working together, we can ensure that Georgia's best and brightest days are still to come."
