Number of unemployed more than doubled in one year

By Stephen Lega

In June of 2008, 6.3 percent, or 678 people, were considered unemployed in Marion County. By June of 2009, both of those figures had more than doubled.

More than 1,400 Marion Countians were considered unemployed as of June, which is 13.2 percent of the workforce, according to statistics available through Workforce Kentucky. The state unemployment rate for June was 11.1 percent.

July figures are not yet available.

"It's hard to believe our unemployment rates are that high," said Tom Lund, Marion County Economic Development director.
