The Rome-Floyd labor force reached 42,700 in October, the highest in 13 months.

As national headlines have continued with news of thousands of layoffs at Twitter, Facebook and even Amazon — Georgia is beginning to see a bit of erosion as well, even amid record employment. But locally, it is just the opposite.

Floyd County’s labor force in October peaked at 42,700 — the highest in at least 13 months — with a 1,100-job increase since the same month in 2021. October also saw 100 more jobs than September of this year, in part because of hiring for the Christmas shopping season.
