Quote from WRAL,,, “There are so many people that are unemployed. In our area alone -- we serve the capital area, which is Wake and Johnston counties -- the number of individuals that are currently unemployed in our area is over 29,000." Please keep this in mind if you think this is the best place for jobs,,,,,not good, This area never did have the job growth needed to cover the transplant migration. Ya the whole country is in a mess but this was called in posts over two years ago when others would say he is just chicken little and the sky is falling. Now we are in bad shape compared to job growth in Texas and other still growing areas, Charlotte still shows job growth but who nows with the banking mess imploding. Jobs equal growth not growth equals jobs,,,,,Time sorts out the reality and it has, Think before you move folks,,please take care of your families first before worring about warm weather.

I live in Burke County, unemployment rate is 8.6 for August, and climbing. Another plant announced that it is closing, and still others are downsizing and cutting shifts and and and...

KFC says they're hiring though. If you don't mind minimum wage "do ya want fries with that" for a job.

And I fear that we ain't seen anything yet, the wheels are coming off and the government is throwing 700 Billion is a last ditch effort to keep at least a few wheels on.
