Southwest Georgia's unemployment rates went down slightly last month, but that doesn't mean people aren't still looking for work.

The Georgia Department of Labor reports that the rate of unemployment dropped in October from 9.9% to 9.7%.

Local residents say even though the rate went down, they think businesses need to do a better job with long-term employment.

Residents say as far as spending money during the holiday season goes, people will buy things for their loved ones, regardless of their employment status.
