A new report from the Fiscal Research Center at Georgia State University's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies shows the state lost tens of thousands of "prime" or "premium" jobs in the decade from 2000-2009.  

And the report's editor says the forces behind that trend have not gone away in the years since 2009.

Carolyn Bourdeaux is an Associate Professor of Public Management and Policy at GSU.  She spoke with WABE's Denis O'Hayer.
