Obama's Job Impact Not Clear

Sep 18, 2011

The American Jobs Act, which President Barack Obama rolled out this month, could create several thousand jobs in Kentucky if passed by Congress, according to White House estimates. However, it remains unclear how those new jobs could affect the Bowling Green area, where the unemployment rate was 8.4 in July, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The unemployment rate for Kentucky remained steady in August at 9.5 percent.
