Georgia lacks jobs for unemployed workers

In an editorial published in the Macon Teleagraph, GBPI Senior Policy Analyst Clare S. Richie writes, “Weekly unemployment payments in Georgia average $270 per week, only replacing about one-third of an average worker’s weekly wage. What family would volunteer to live on one-third of their income?” Dowload the editorial.

Note: The editorial also was published in the Savannah Morning News and Times Georgian.
