Georgia continues to gradually recover jobs lost during the Great Recession, according to recently released data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Georgia kept pace with the national average in job growth over the past 12 month and created more jobs than all but six other states during the past three. While these are positive signs, serious concerns remain. If the economy doesn’t pick up steam soon, Georgia won’t return to pre-recession levels of employment for many years, and working Georgians may be in for another “lost decade” when it comes to income and job security. We still have a long way to go to fully recover from the Great Recession. Download the fact sheet.
