Georgia unemployment rate unchanged

Posted: Updated:
 ATLANTA (AP) - State labor officials say Georgia's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 6.3% is unchanged from the previous month, and still well below the 7.3% rate from a year ago.
    
The Georgia Department of Labor on Thursday announced the most recent numbers from March. The 6.3% rate in February and March is the state's lowest jobless rate since July 2008.
    
State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler said in a statement that Georgia's jobless rate has either declined or remained steady every month since November 2010, when it was 10.5%.
