The Georgia Department of labor says the unemployment rate in the Azalea city declined to 8.4-percent.

That's down two-tenths a percentage point from 8.6.

Residents say the unemployment rate is improving but there's still a ways to go.

"I have seen a lot of people get jobs but its still a lot of people ain't working, said Tim Lasane. "It's hard for people to get work."

The Department of Labor says the decrease is because of 400 new jobs added in the Valdosta area.
