The latest numbers from the Georgia Department of Labor Thursday indicate the unemployment rate is flat.

Jobs rose by 25,100 from July to August, but the growth in August came from seasonal education workers returning to their jobs.

State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler said, "Georgia continues to have respectable job growth, which is a good sign. What's more encouraging is the fact that the August-to-August growth in the last year is the most we've had since 2007." 

Georgia has created 49,700 jobs since August 2011, according to the data.

Macon had an increase of 1,200 jobs and Warner Robins saw a decrease of 100 jobs.
