Is the manufacturing job market improving in Georgia?

lawyer in a lawyers library

A recent report suggests Georgia’s manufacturing industry is on the mend. According to the 2014 Georgia Manufacturers Register, Georgia has experienced 1.6 percent growth in manufacturing jobs from May 2012 to May 2013. This is more than double the growth during the same period from 2011 to 2012, as well as ahead of the national average.

Interestingly, a report issued by Kennesaw State University suggested that Georgia is actually losing jobs in manufacturing–finding in June that employment is trending downward.

It is tough to know what to make of these conflicting reports. However, what is clear is that as we recover from the recession, many individuals and families that have been hit hard by lengthy bouts of unemployment continue to struggle.

Many people who have been victims of layoffs or downsizing in Atlanta during the recession have ended up incurring significant amounts of debt–even if they were able to meet all of their monthly financial obligations.

Those who are struggling with unmanageable debt, and possibly creditor harassment, should be aware that they may be good candidates for bankruptcy relief. Many people might think that because they have gone back to work now, they cannot qualify for bankruptcy protection, but this is not necessarily true.

Those who have incomes–even high incomes–but are struggling with debt may benefit from Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows debtors to reorganize their debts and come up with new arrangements to pay creditors. This is also a method to stop creditor harassment and prevent foreclosure.

It is nice to see news about an improving job market, but there are still many people out there who cannot find work or who have suffered financial difficulties due to long-term unemployment. It is important that viable debt relief options are available to those who find themselves in such situations.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
