Unemployment rises in new figures for Moore County

North Carolina can’t seem to untangle itself from the worst economy since the great depression. Statewide unemployment, which has been reported as 9-point-8 percent in December soared to 10-point-5 percent in January. Even Moore County, which weathers economic downturns rather well, reported a jobless figure slightly above 10-percent. Most regional counties fared not as well. Only Hoke reported unemployment below 10 percent, but just barely. Scotland County reported the highest unemployment rate in the region, 17-point-8 percent, or one out of five workers without a job. Cumberland County reported almost 15-thousand people out of work.
