ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia will get close to 100 million dollars to help the unemployed find work.

The federal stimulus package will send the Peach State more than $99,994,007 for Georgia's One-Stop Career Centers.

Through the centers the unemployed, under-employed, and dislocated workers can access career counseling, skill assessment, job search assistance and more.

Georgia's Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond is still working out how the state's money will be distributed through its various career centers.
