Gov. Deal has brought Georgia nearly to the bottom. More than 370,000 Georgians can’t find jobs in Gov. Deal’s economy and thousands of others have given up looking.


“We used to lead the way by sending students to pre-k and college. Now we lead in having one of the highest drop-out rates and close to the worst jobless rate in the nation, and the jobs we are adding pay extremely low wages. (Jason Carter)

“With thousands looking for work, Gov. Deal is declaring victory. He says Georgia is at the pinnacle, bragging about rankings that are a poor substitute for jobs for middle-class families. That’s what happens when you stop looking for solutions. (Jason Carter)

“Maybe Gov. Deal thinks things are going well because he has made millions of dollars for himself, while far too many Georgians have fallen behind. (Better Georgia)

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported this weekend that the new jobs that are being created in Georgia have among the lowest wages in the nation: “And in Georgia, particularly its second-tier cities … the proportion of low-wage jobs is among the highest in the nation.”

There are now more than 370,000 unemployed workers in Georgia, an increase of 17,000 from the month before. That’s the largest increase in the country, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Georgia’s unemployment rate of 7.8 percent is markedly higher than the national rate of 6.2 percent.

According to the Georgia Department of Labor, Georgia lost more than 12,000 jobs in July, and more than 4,800 people left the workforce. In June, Georgia lost 9,500 jobs.

it's not Deal’s economy causing wage drop. it's Obama's. with employers gearing up for have to supply health insurance to full time employees, they are going to be paying less nation wide, and switching to a more part time work force. I have been seeing several college adds for professors, but they clearly are asking for part time only. same with bank tellers.

I hate to tell you this but the local universities were hiring part-time instructors before Obama took office. We also know that Obama care isn't a job killer. Your talking points are old and outdated. The Obamacare debate is over. Obamacare is here to stay.

Deal can't blame his failed leadership or his unethical behavior on Obama. Sorry, but were not buying that FOX news snake oil. The proof is in the pudding.

no we don't know it's not a job killer, he kicked that part of the bill down the road until after the election. illegally at that.
