Thousands Camp Out for Job Fair as Jobless Rate Rises NDMzNjgxNV9Kb2JMaW5lR3Jvd3MtU3RvY2tzU2luayZnPTImbz*1YThmYWI2OTg1MTE*Y2VkYTI4ODI5M2VjZTg*M2JmOSZvZj*w

Thousands of unemployed waited overnight, camping out in their business suits and office heels and braving the tormenting heat in Atlanta to stand in line for a job fair Thursday. Authorities treated 20 people for heat exhaustion as they struggled to keep the line moving and get people moved inside.

The incredible turnout at the job fair comes on the heels of the state labor commissioner’s announcement that Georgia’s jobless rate rose.

The state unemployment rate increased to 10.1 percent in July from the 9.9 percent in June. The unemployment rate for African-Americans stands at 15.9 percent, far above the national rate of 9.1 percent.

July marks the 48th consecutive month that Georgia has exceeded the national unemployment rate.
