Greenville County also experienced a significant decline to 9 percent from 10.2 percent the previous month.

Not that this information is worth anything, but I thought at least one of our readers may be interested in knowing that Greenville's current unemployment rate (9%) is lower than NYC's current unemployment rate (9.8%).

Actually, my company is based in New York and most "true" New Yorkers I've met have wonderful attitudes. The bad attitudes come from the the New York "posers".

I like them very much but it needs to be much much lower. Wonder where my neighbor who is selling his house to move to another state for a job fits in that number.

Did I mention I have a job interview Monday?

9% is still a high unemployment rate, so people can't just move to Greenville and expect to land a job.

That's right. They are the ones who go to Cheesecake Factory in White Plains "since it's essentially in the city."
