Thousands Camp Out for Atlanta Job Fair

Braving the heat in Atlanta, Georgia last Thursday, thousands of unemployed camped out for the city’s job fair. 20 attendees were even treated for heat exhaustion. The state’s unemployment rate increased to 10.1 percent in July. Among African-Americans the rate rises to 15.9 percent. Atlanta remains higher than the national rate of 9.1 percent. The event was held at Atlanta Technical College and even clogged traffic.
