Tillis Statement on N.C. Unemployment Rate Continuing to Drop

Raleigh – The following statement is from House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-Mecklenburg) regarding the unemployment rate dropping to 6.2 percent – its lowest point in almost six years:

“It’s no coincidence given our tax, regulatory and unemployment reform that we continue to see a significant drop in unemployment and are able to add jobs for our citizens. I will work on legislation during this short session that will keep improving our economy and placing North Carolinians in good jobs.”

In January 2011, North Carolina’s unemployment rate was at 10.4 percent, higher than the national average. Today’s unemployment rate has dropped by 39 percent to 6.2, falling below the national average. During that time, North Carolina has added more than 200,000 jobs.
