Diversity Job Fair Struggling Into Charlotte!

We often hear about the struggling economy, but when you read that the economy has lost 8 million jobs in less than 3 years, it only confirms the reality. The once thriving Diversity Job Fair heads into Charlotte today with the city's Unemployment Rate at 11.1%. There was a time that the fair would have has many as 40 employers on hand recruiting potential employees, that employer number today is closer to 20. Jim Carter, who runs the Kennesaw, GA company tells the Charlotte Observer that he once had a database of about 1800 contacts, that number is down to 892. Reading an article of this nature, clearly highlights the rough economic climate.
