When was it over? Did I miss the memo? It's not over, it's just begining. It's finally being felt in the other countries that we support.
The only reason unemployment is lower, is because they don't count the people who are no longer able to apply, their time has run out.
I found a job after a year and a half of looking and going through my life savings. I've been working since 14, put my self through school, no school loans, I worked, I'm educated and have skills. I still had a hard time finding employment. Too qualified, made too much money in the past. I worked my way up to the wages I made. I learned the systems the company went to, taught myself and others.
We, not only this country, but our allies, are in BIG TROUBLE and no matter how they spin it, it's BAD!
We are not the great uneducated, the great unwashed, we have a failing banking, financial industry. Our government is failing, we are at war. We have hunger and poverty running rampant in our country. Our vets and elderly are abused and without! Our mentally ill and handicapped are pushed aside.
We are lost!
you gotta love the nitwits who write these stories. they've been wriyting them constantly since 2007, and you'd think by now they'd say to themselves: "self, if it's actually over, why do I keep writing about it from week to week?"
who the heck are they trying to persuade? It sure ain't us.
We have some counties in Alabama that are over 25% unemployment. No mass layoffs, but no jobs either. Americans need to work to fix the economy. More payroll taxes, more money into the economy. We've been in a depression, not recession, but if they want to call it a recession, fine. We're going back to where we were in a large part due to gas prices. People who have jobs have to get to work, which costs them more, so other bills have to suffer. So here we go again.
Instead of bailing out banks, investing in fixing our infrastructure would put thousands back to work and the support industries would put thousands more back to work. Quit putting money in the pockets of banker thieves and put it into building our country back.
The President that Caused the Current "Walmart Effect" (US Corporations switching from Made In US to Made In China) was President Clinton's Most Favored Trade Nation Status For China, in exchange for HUGE Contributions and "Donations" from the Chinese (still occurring to the Clinton Foundation) as stated during President Clinton Impeachment Hearings as "Chinagate".
Think about the coincidence of the Headquarters for Walmart being Arkansas, and President Clinton being the former Governor of Arkansas (1983-1992).
Cali is a huge burden on the rest of the country.
The US economy is in the worst shape right now. Just wait another 4 months. You will see a huge increase in layoffs. Unless they block the Obama care bill in court. Than employers will hire enough to minimize the layoffs

Detroit Michigan is listed as number 8.
8. Detroit, Mich.Workers affected by mass layoffs: 2,267
Mass layoffs doubled in the Detroit metro in the first quarter after ranking No. 37 in 2011. Blame General Motors, which stopped production of its Chevy Vault (Volt) and Opel Ampera for five weeks due to lagging sales. The move cost 1,300 workers at the Detroit plant their jobs for five weeks in March and April.
