Hancock, Putnam Counties January Unemployment Rates

Hancock, Putnam Counties January Unemployment Rates

Hancock County's unemployment rate for January was 17 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

Putnam County's unemployment rate in January was 11.2 percent.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.
