Thanks to GOP Governor Nathan Deal’s pro-jobs policies, Georgia’s economy is experiencing unprecedented growth, setting new employment records in 2017. Over the last year, the state created over 83,000 new jobs, driving unemployment down by 1.1 percent, and just last month, Georgia added another 5,600 jobs to end the year with “an all-time record high of 4,518,900.” As Governor Deal remains committed to spurring job growth and expanding opportunity, pro-growth policies continue to get real results for the people of Georgia.

State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler said today that 2017 was a banner year for job creation, employment and work force gains in Georgia.

Over the year, Georgia created more than 83,000 new jobs, employed thousands more residents, grew a much larger work force, and drove unemployment down 1.1 percent.

‘As we look back at the year, it was impressive,’ Butler said. ‘Over the year every major measurement improved considerably. In fact, we set records in several areas such as jobs, employment and work force.’

In December, Georgia added 5,600 new jobs to end the year with an all-time record high of 4,518,900.

The previous high of 4,513,300 was recorded in November.

The 1.9 percent growth rate compares favorably with the national growth rate of 1.4 percent.

Job records were also set in educational and health services at 589,300 and leisure and hospitality at 495,900.”
