Unemployment Rate Improves Slightly for July Jlme. The state rate was 4.3 in July of 2001. Jobless rates improved in Meriwether, Troup and Harris, but worsened slight- ly in Talbot County. However, State Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond cautions against reading too much into the state's improving f',urea. "Although the decline in the unemployment rate is good news, it's primarily the result of employment trends," said Thurmtmd. "There are marly local school employees who don't have 12-month contracts, such as maintenance and cafeteria workers and bus drivers, who don't attempt to find temporary summer employment. When school starts up again, most of these workers are expected to return to their regular jobs," said Thurmond. The lowest rate of the four locaA counties during Julywas once again the 2.6 per cent recorded in Harris, down sharply from the 3.2 in Harris' revised June figures. A year ago, Harris had a 3.4 jobless rate. *Meriwether dropped dramatically, with a 6.9 for July, compared to 8.1 percent in June. In July of last year, the jobless rate for Meriwether was 7.6 per cent. * Talbot showed a 5.0 per cent rate in July, up from the revised June rate of 4.9 per- cent. In July of 2001, Talbot had a whopping 8.2 percent unem- ployment rate. *'Proup declined to a 5.7 percent rate in July from a 5.9 rate in June. InJulyof 2001,Troup had a 5.1 rate. *The Chattahoochee- Flint region, which includes Meriwether, Troup, Carroll, Coweta and Heard, had a 5.3 rate for July, compared to a 5.4 percent rate in June. In July of 2001 it was S.0 per- cent. *The Lower Chattahoochee district, which includes Harris, Talbot and six other counties, aver- aged a 4.9 jobless rate for July compared to June's 5.2 rate.
