It is easy for the unemployment rate to get lower when everyone exhaust their benefits. No new jobs just more people who cannot collect unemployment. Reality.

90 more people doesn't mean that they are working in Cannon County either.

There has not been a sudden increase of 90 jobs added in Cannon County.

I doubt you could find 10 new jobs in Woodbury in the last year! And when I say new, I mean created jobs and not ones that are back filled when someone leaves to go to a job in Murfreesboro.

Where are the jobs? Certainly not in this county! My kids have been searching and searching for a job. The only prospect was McDonalds in maybe 6 weeks or longer. We need jobs in Cannon county!
