Governor Pat McCrory released the following statement concerning North Carolina's November unemployment rate drop to 7.4 percent- the lowest rate in more than five years.
"The job trend continues to be positive for North Carolina families. We are confident the policies enacted in the past year have yielded a positive impact, but much more innovation and change is needed to continue putting North Carolinians back to work. We are thankful that new businesses are investing in North Carolina but just as thankful that existing businesses are feeling the confidence to reinvest in our great state as well. We shall remain focused on policies that will encourage long-term sustainable job growth."
