If you’re unemployed and have been for several months, you’re not alone. North Carolina’s unemployment rate stayed put at 4.5 percent in January, where it hasn’t budged in the past three months. The last time that NC’s rate matched up with the national average of 4.4 percent was back in August of 2017. However, our state then distressed to 4.5 percent, while the national average changed to 4.1 percent in October. Neither has changed since then. Nonetheless, 70,000 extra workers were added to payrolls between Jan. 2017 and Jan. 2018, according to statistics.
