More jobs and more unemployed in Genesee County

posted by Howard B. Owens in business, economy, jobs, employment.

The number of people working in Genesee County in October is higher than in 2011, but so is the unemployment rate, according to figures released today by the Department of Labor.

There are 30,200 people working in the county, the DOL reports, which is up from 29,700 a year ago; however, the unemployment rate year-over-year went up from 6.8 percent to 7.2 percent.

The state counts 2,300 unemployed people in the county for October 2012 and 2,200 a year ago.

There were 30,300 people employed in the county in September 2012 and the unemployment rate that month was 7.1 percent.

These numbers seem contrary to what the GCEDC claims they have done for the county. They may have brought in local jobs, but the only explanation for these nubers is that local jobs arent being filled by local people. Thats a bit of a Fail to me.
