ATLANTA – The Georgia Department of Labor reported Wednesday that the preliminary unadjusted unemployment rate in the metro Dalton area increased to 13.2 percent in November, up 1.7 percent from 11.5 percent in October.

Meanwhile, the number of unemployed workers in the area increased to 8,090, up 1,139 from 6,951. The jobless rate in the metro Dalton area in November 2009 was 12.6 percent.

State Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond announced earlier this week that the Georgia Department of Labor is processing extended benefit claims for unemployed Georgians who will qualify under legislation enacted Friday, which expands the extended benefits claim filing period for jobless Americans through Dec. 31, 2011. The bill does not, however, provide additional benefits beyond 99 weeks.

“These additional resources will help qualified jobseekers provide food, clothing, and shelter while they seek employment,” said Commissioner Thurmond. “I’m pleased that the approval came in time for the holidays.”

The state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose to 10.1 percent in November, up three-tenths of a percentage point from 9.8 percent in October. The preliminary October rate of 9.9 percent reported last month has been revised downward by one-tenth of a percentage point. The rate was 10.2 percent in November 2009. This is the 38th consecutive month Georgia has exceeded the national unemployment rate, which is currently 9.8 percent.

In November, the number of payroll jobs increased 7,000, or two-tenths of a percentage point, from 3,842,500 in October to 3,849,500 in November. Most of the increases came in retail trade, professional and business services, and educational and health services. However, the number of jobs remains 5,100, or one-tenth of a percentage point, less than in November 2009, when there were 3,854,600 payroll jobs. In metro Dalton, the number of payroll jobs decreased 100, from 64,700 in October to 64,600 in November.
