Too many Georgians are out of work and the state's unemployment rate has exceeded the national average every month for more than four years.
Georgia's Speaker of the House say state leaders are focused on job creation.
"I think there's nothing more important that we can do than to make sure Georgians the economic opportunities that they deserve," says Representative David Ralston.
Representative David Ralston supports reforming taxes and strict business regulations. He believes it's important to create an atmosphere that helps small businesses grow.
"We are making sure that small businesses in the state are able to maintain their employment levels and give them a climate where they can expand," says Ralston.
Some small businesses are growing and hiring despite the down economy. Today, Albany's Goodwill Career Center hosted a job fair to Krystal's and Cracker Barrel find new workers.
Cracker Barrel General Manager, Antone Mistrot says, "We are looking for some qualified individuals to bring on to our team to help fill some of our needs we have in our employee gaps."
Employers take advantage of job fairs like these to give attention to prospective employees.
"It allows us to meet a lot of people all at one time without being interrupted by daily business or anything," says Mistrot.
But it also opens up the community to more job opportunities.
"It provides them with a one stop shop of being able to see several businesses, and we have time dedicated to speak with them," says Mistrot.
