North Carolina’s unemployment rate increased from 10.8 percent to 11 percent in October, according to numbers released from the NC Employment Security Commission today.  This is the first time the unemployment rate has risen since May.


It’s not all bad news, however.  The ESC says non-farm payroll across the state increased by 12.100.

Furniture and fabricated metal production saw the most job losses in October, while local government and healthcare & social assistance saw the most job gains.

The national unemployment rate for last month was 10.2 percent.

The NC ESC will release their county-by-county numbers in the coming days.
