A Georgia Department of Agriculture survey has revealed a shortage in farm labor. But the question is, why aren't those jobs filled?
The farmers surveyed report a need for 11,000 workers this year. That’s despite a state unemployment rate of 9.9 percent.
The Atlanta-based Wendy’s/Arby’s Group announced Monday it is selling its Arby’s section to an Atlanta-based private equity firm, Roark Capital Group.
Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. is one of the largest fast food sandwich chains in the country.
Georgia revenues crept up 2.5 percent in May, the 11th straight month that tax collections in the state have risen.
State money managers reported Wednesday that revenues are up 8 percent for the fiscal year that ends June 30.
