2014 has been a sluggish year for the Alabama economy, but it appears things are getting on track in September. On Friday, October 17 the Governor’s office announced that the adjusted unemployment rate has dropped to just 6.6 percent.

Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R) said, “The number of jobs employers reported in Alabama in September is the highest we have seen since December 2008, and that is thanks to the strong economic development efforts we have put in place to create jobs.
