Labor Data for Region C

“In Fall 2016, representatives from the NC Department of Commerce’s Labor & Economic Analysis Division (LEAD) provided a presentation on the Region C economy to the Workforce Development Board. LEAD provided a wealth of information to the WDB about the strengths of our region, as well as the challenges we face, on both a regional level and at the county level. While regional unemployment is nearing pre-recession levels, we have not yet recovered all the jobs lost during the Great Recession. The WDB will be utilizing this information over the next year to strengthen our regional impact, continue our effective engagement with industry partners, and continue to provide quick and thorough assistance to our regional workforce.”
