While Georgia’s unemployment rate remained at 2.8% last month, the number of jobs hit another record high in August, the state Department of Labor reported Thursday.
U.S. employers added 315,000 jobs in August, while the unemployment rate rose to 3.7% from 3.5% in July. A tight job market gives workers more bargaining power, but it may also fuel inflation.
U.S. employers added 528,000 jobs in July, showing the labor market remains strong, despite high inflation and softening economic growth. The unemployment rate fell to 3.5%.
