The rate was down slightly from a revised 3.6 percent in April and 4.0 percent in May of 1998. "It's encouraging that unem- ployment rates in our state Rent going up, up, up!I! Then call the dream team at Field of Dreams and they'll show you how to purchase your own home. --Call 1-800-207-7138 now! Field of Dreams 800-207-7137 remain very low," said Thurmond, "in fact below the five percent rate that econo- mists call 'full employment'. But while most who want to work are doing so, there are still thousands of Georgians who are not working but are not count- ed among the statistically unem- ployed. "These are people who've become discouraged because they lack the skills necessary to find work or have some other trait that has made them unat- tractive to employers," Thur- mond continued. "But with guidance and training many of them could fill jobs that are unfilled because of the labor shortage. "We profile some of these people and explain how they can become productive workers in our upcoming televised job fair., Job Fair '99, a co-produc- tion of the labor department and Georgia Public Television (GPTV), will air Wednesday, June 23, from 8-11 p.m. on the GPTV network.
