Kentucky's unemployment rate is on the rise and many counties with high rates are right here in South Central Kentucky. In Butler County they've had the highest unemployment rate in the state ever since the Sumitomo Plant left last year laying off more than 800 workers.

Judge Executive Hugh Evans and Mayor Black recently met with five businesses interested in the area but Evans say recruiting can be difficult during a weak economy. For more information on unemployment rates you can log onto www.desky.com
