Unemployment rate increase to four-year high, As of June 2007 Unemployment rate went from 7,295,000 to 8,933,000 in June of 2008
US employers shed more jobs last month than in any month in more than five years, led by a sharp drop in service sector jobs and continuing losses in the construction, manufacturing and retail sectors, the Labor Department said today.
The economy lost 159,000 jobs in September, far more than the 100,000 lost jobs economists polled by Thomson Reuters IFR Markets were expecting. September's decline is the largest seen since March 2003, when the economy lost 212,000 jobs.
The economy has now lost 760,000 jobs since January. Economists have said the economy needs to create about 100,000 jobs each month to keep up with new workers, but with September's numbers, the economy has now averaged a monthly loss of about 43,000 jobs over the last 12 months.
The unemployment rate, taken from a separate survey of households, remained unchanged in September at 6.1%, as expected. That's the highest unemployment level seen since September 2003.

The unemployment rate continues to rise, and in New York this week, the state unemployment insurance system crashed under pressure from attempts by an estimated 10,000 people per hour to log in to the system to file a new claim. With no end to the stream of lay-offs in sight, some newly unemployed people are turning to pxaid medical trials to raise extra dough. Though some of the tests seem ridiculous (hello, who would actually volunteer to test Ipecac Syrup?), others do provide researchers and drug companies with valuable information in developing new drugs. Would you participate in a study for cash?
Electronic unemployment filing systems have crashed in at least three states in recent days amid an unprecedented crush of thousands of newly jobless Americans seeking benefits, and other states are adjusting their systems to avoid being next.
When these people get unemployed they will do anything, like selling their car and wife!
*******www.headlineds**** -- "The Bright Side of Unemployment" is from the February 9, 2009 edition of the Express. The article talks about a number of so called perks to being unemployed including spending more time with your spouse. I think it's a pretty sad commentary on working life that you have to lose your job in order to spend more time with your family. Sure, work is important. But if you spend more time during the week with your co-workers than your husband or wife, that just seems like an imbalance of priorities. Distributed by Tubemogul.
