Last month’s local area unemployment report contained some good news and some bad news for communities across North Carolina. The good news: unemployment rates have dropped in 91 counties since June of last year, suggesting some improvement in the jobs picture. The bad news: most of the long-term job gains since the end of the Great Recession have been concentrated in just a few of North Carolina’s largest metro areas, namely Charlotte, Raleigh, and Greensboro. Rural North Carolina is being left behind. See the newest issue of Prosperity Watch for details.
