Charlotte NC: 1 in 10 Unemployed

Some pretty sobering job related news was reported by Charlotte, NC based WCNC today. They are claiming that 1 out of every 10 people in the Charlotte area is unemployed. This puts the percentage of unemployed at around 10% which is higher than the national average. 

If you are looking for work, persistence is a good thing to keep in mind. With so many people applying for the same jobs it is also important to keep a positive attitude and to try and explore all of the options available.
