More people may be giving up on the job search. (July 15, 2010 / WRDW-TV)

The jobless rate in Georgia fell in June, but that's not necessarily good news.
The rate fell a tenth of a point to ten percent. However, the number of people looking for jobs fell too. There was also a decline in the overall number of jobs available.
That could be a sign that more people are just giving up in the search for a job as any economic rebounds lose steam.
Augusta lost 1,700 jobs in June. Many of them were government jobs.
