Unemployed – You are not alone!

daddyunemploymentline230x15The Labor Department said last week that employers cut a net total of 533,000 jobs in November, and the unemployment rate reached 6.7 percent, a 15-year high.  The latest jobless claims figures indicate that the December report could be just as bad or worse.  Companies have eliminated a net total of 1.9 million jobs this year, and some economists project the total could reach 3 million by the spring of 2010.  The number of people continuing to claim jobless benefits also jumped, increasing by 338,000 to 4.4 million.

Knowing there must be several million or so in this situation, myself included, I thought I should find something bright and encouraging  to include on the subject…   I came across a great cartoon site that will inspire confidence and faith (NOT), but is good for a laugh, and laughter is good at such at time – yes!   I encourage all to visit Odd Todd.   He has several great cartoon episodes on the subject.   LINK
