Baldwin County January Unemployment Rates

Baldwin County January Unemployment Rates

Baldwin County's unemployment rate for January was 13.1 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.

He says the important thing is the rate is lower than it was last year.

  • Make your bed. It will keep your sheets cleaner and your room neater.
  • Pay a bill.
  • Empty the dishwasher.
  • Clean out 2 file folders. Shred or toss what you don't need to keep.
  • Shred papers from your shredding pile.
  • Sort your mail.
  • Grab your laundry basket and gather everything that doesn’t belong in the living room. Return it to its proper room.

 

Because February is the shortest month of the year, we are talking about small things, small projects and small spaces in your home.
