Georgia Dept. of Labor (DOL) Commissioner Mark Butler spoke to the Coweta-Fayette Rotary Club Monday night, updating the group on DOL initiatives designed to combat unemployment and boost the skills needed for the Georgia job market which is becoming increasingly high-tech.
Butler noted that, with high employment from the Great Recession and with the trust fund depleted in 2009, the state had to borrow money from the federal government to meet unemployment insurance obligations. That amount plus interest amounted to nearly $1 billion.
