(WMOT) &ndash; WMOT News is looking at sectors of the Tennessee economy that have prospered in hard times in a series of stories we&rsquo;re calling &quot;Tennessee Works.&quot;</p><p>Tennessee&rsquo;s unemployment rate peaked in June of 2009 at 10.8 percent. Joblessness has fallen slowly in the months since, but is still uncomfortably high at eight percent.</p><p>There are some professions, though, that enjoyed low unemployment even at the height of the great recession.</p> Mon, 16 Apr 2012 23:03:37 +0000 Mike Osborne 9849 at http://wmot.org
