Thursday, the Leon County Commission listened to a presentation by Workforce Plus on the area's joblessness. Workforce Plus says more than ten thousand unemployment claims have been filed in Gadsden County, Wakulla and Leon Counties collectively. Workforce says Gadsden has the highest unemployment out of the three counties.

Kim Moore with the agency said, "I think it's absolutely key that our leaders in the community understand the challenges that we face both on a national level as well as a local level, so this provided an opportunity to do just that."

The Leon County Commission says updates on the unemployment status will help the county extend its resources where they are needed most. Workforce Plus says the agency is taking additional steps and receiving assistance from national emergency grants.
