“Lost Jobs” Governor Selected as Expert on Jobs


For some reason, Gov. Perdue has been selected by the National Governor’s Association to its Economic Development and Commerce Committee.  The NGA must be desperate. Consider Perdue’s resume on jobs: According the state Employment Security Commission, from Jan. 2009 when she took office to June 2011 (latest data available):

  • Total employment in NC has dropped by 138,900 jobs – a contraction of 3.5%
  • The number of unemployed in NC has risen by 22,243, a 5.2% increase
  • The employment to population ratio in the state dropped from 58.9% to 55.8%
  • The percentage of North Carolinians participating in the labor force (either working or actively seeking work) dropped from 64.9% to 61.9%
