A Month Into Reopening And Georgia Jobs Have Yet To Return

Category: 

Two out of five people in Georgia — 40.3 percent of its workforce — have filed for unemployment since the state reopened its economy on April 30, the first to do so. But people are still staying close to home, making it harder for jobs to come back, according to a report in Politico on Thursday (May 21).

Georgia had more filings by percentage of its workforce than any other state, Politico’s review of data indicated. New jobless claims for loans in Georgia have varied since the state reopened, going up 243,000 two weeks ago and dropping to 177,000 last week. The state had commented that the increases in claims were due to jobs lost in retail, social services and health care.

“It’s nothing significant enough to say, ‘Oh, there’s a huge surge,’ — but certainly nothing to signal there’s any return to economic stability or recovery happening right now,” Alex Camardelle, a senior policy analyst with the nonprofit Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, told Politico.

Aside from being the first state to re-open, Georgia was also one of the last states to close its economy and impose stay-home mandates.

More layoffs are coming down the pike in Georgia as the state makes plans to eliminate over 1,000 jobs — educators, counselors, social services, administrators, clerks —  in a move to cut state budgets by 14 percent, according to an AJC report on Sunday (May 24). Revenue decline brought about by the pandemic was cited as the reason.

Further, some state employees not laid off will see their paychecks slashed.

Among the departments laying off or furloughing employees are the Georgia State Patrol and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

How Georgia’s Population Relates To The 2020 Census

Category: 

Georgia’s population of 10.6 million people makes it one of the largest states in the country. The state’s population grew by more than 100,000 from 2018 to 2019, according to the latest Census estimates. The state’s growing population relates to politics and the 2020 Census. However, more than 3% of the Georgia residents get payday loans at least once a year.

The Census counts every person living in the United States. The decennial count determines political representation and how federal money is distributed.

After the 2010 Census, Georgia’s population growth led to an increase of one congressional seat.

“An additional congressional seat means an additional vote in the electoral college, which is really important in helping to pick the President of the United States,” said Andra Gillespie, associate professor of political science at Emory University.

Gillespie also said having more members of Congress means more voices advocating for Georgia. 

“You want as many Georgians on as many committees as possible so that they are advocating for Georgia interests,” she said.

House committees that Georgia representatives serve on include Transportation and Infrastructure, Armed Services, Judiciary as well as Ways and Means. 

Georgia has 14 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. In comparison, Florida has 27 and Alabama and South Carolina each have 7. California has the most seats, with 53.

Battle of Atlanta "Police City"

  • Trending News

    On the morning of January 18, during a routine police operation to remove protesters from the site of a future training facility dubbed “Cop City” in the wooded suburbs of Atlanta, shots were fired. When the smoke cleared, one worker was killed and a state trooper was injured. Questions about what happened have made the case a flashpoint in the national debate about policing and environmental activism.

    The killing of Manuel Esteban Pez Terran, a “guardian of the jungle” known as Tortogueta (or Little Tortoise in Spanish), has raised many questions among activists. Protests against the killing have resulted in a pushback from law enforcement and supporters.

    The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has said the shooting was not recorded on body cameras. Police said the gun used in the shooting against the soldier was purchased by Teran in September 2020. On Wednesday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced that a special prosecutor would be assigned to review the case, but critics are calling for an independent investigation.

     

    In recent days, protesters have descended on Atlanta, and at times have been chaotic, leading to numerous arrests. On Thursday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp A state of emergency was called ahead of more possible anti-police protests later this week.

    Mistrust and anger on both sides has been rampant.

    “The official narrative is that ‘Cop City’ is necessary to make Atlanta ‘safe,’ but this brutal murder shows what they mean when they use that word,” Defend the Atlanta Forest, A grassroots organization that has led protests against internment. The center said in a statement after the shooting.

Exactly one year ago, we reported that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis submitted a request for a special grand jury to be impaneled to decide if former President Donald Trump and his band of Trump-humpers are guilty of interfering in the Georgia 2020 election after the majority of Georgia voters decided Trump shall not get his rust-orange butt-shavings all over the Oval Office furniture for another four years.

From our previous report:

Her request was approved by most of the judges on the Fulton County Superior Court. The scope of Willis’ inquiry includes the call Trump made to the secretary of state after losing Georgia in the 2020 election and a November 2020 call Sen. Lindsey Graham made to Raffensperger to put pressure on him. Willis’ inquiry would also look at former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s false claims in efforts to overturn the election. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution also noted that the investigation is digging into an Atlanta-based U.S. Attorney’s “abrupt resignation.”

Vols Walk Dawgs in Midweek Matchup

FINAL:

Tennessee – 70

Georgia – 41

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The SEC might just be the best conference in College Basketball this season, so no team is an easy out. Tennessee hosted Georgia Wednesday night with a matchup against Texas looming in the weekend SEC-Big12 Challenge.

Tennessee is used to being the team that comes out hot this season, but that didn’t happen in this one. The Vols started off 1-5 from the field, allowing Georgia to build a 4-0 lead. At the first TV timeout Tennessee was down 6-4. The Vols went on to dominate the next segment of the game, going on a 9-0 run and turning The Bulldogs over five times in a seven possession stretch. While Georgia was able to do some damage control and keep it close, it wasn’t for long as Tennessee went on another 9-0 run forcing a five and a half minute scoring drought for The Dawgs. The Vols found themselves up ten when the drought broke with a Bulldog free throw, and then extended it to a 14-1 run making it 33-18 with 3:30 to go in the first half. Going into the break Tennessee had held Georgia to 33% from the field, forced The Bulldogs into ten turnovers with six steals, and led the game 35-22.

Tennessee began to flex in the second half with more of the same domination from The Vols

ANTIFA Rioters Arrested – Atlanta’s Not Portland

ANTIFA Rioters Arrested – Atlanta’s Not Portland

Following the killing of environmental activist Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, 26, who was shot by police in Atlanta, Georgia, Atlanta Police officers had to deal with a night of ANTIFA rioters smashing windows and setting cars on fire.

Teran is alleged to have shot at police officers while defending a forest from “Cop City,” which is a police training center near Atlanta. Members of his environmental conservation community are alleging that the Atlanta police officer suffered a gunshot from friendly fire, and Teran had not fired a shot. However, there is no indication that an officer was shot by friendly fire at this time.

Following a police officer getting shot in the abdomen, Teran was believed to have fired the shot at the police officer. Teran would be shot and killed by a police officer, and his death created a wave of protests throughout a handful of cities, most notably in Atlanta, where seven rioters would go on to be arrested.

 

ANTIFA Rioters Arrested – Atlanta’s Not Portland

Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens said Saturday evening:

“Atlanta is safe and our police officers have resolved the disruptions downtown from earlier in the evening,”  adding, “The City of Atlanta and the Atlanta Police Department will continue to protect the right to peaceful protest. We will not tolerate violence or property destruction.”

Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens would announce that some of the ANTIFA domestic terrorists also were carrying explosives.

Violent Antifa Riot in Atlanta Manned by Out-of-State Invaders

Violent Antifa Riot in Atlanta Manned by Out-of-State Invaders
  • Typical Antifa ‘Peaceful Protest’
  • Antifa Attackers Came from Washington State, Nevada, and Maine
  • A violent riot by Antifa rocked the downtown of Atlanta, Georgia over the weekend. It was also manned by out-of-state communists, the local police discovered after identifying the ones they had managed to arrest.

    Typical Antifa ‘Peaceful Protest’

    Dozens of businesses had their windows and glass doors smashed in downtown Atlanta on Saturday. At the same time, a police car was set on fire.

    The rally had been called after, last week, during a sweep in an Antifa-occupied “no-go” zone in DeKalb County, the Atlanta police shot and killed 26-year-old far-left activist Manuel Teran.

    Teran or another of the America-hating occupiers shot at the police and wounded a state trooper. He survived but had to be hospitalized and undergo surgery. 

    Teran’s nickname was Tortuguita. He was a “non-binary” individual who used made-up “they/it” pronouns. 

    A forested area in DeKalb County, which has been set aside for the construction of a police and firefighting training center, has been occupied by woke activists for many months now, who call it “cop city.” 

    As masked, black-clad Antifa thugs descended upon downtown Atlanta on Saturday night, they started lighting fireworks and throwing rocks.
