Unemployment is at what?!
Holy shit, how do you figure this? Absolutely amazing and terrifying.
The New York Post yesterday ran with this staggering story on newly released figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
“The unemployment rate for young Americans has exploded to 52.2 percent — a post-World War II high, according to the Labor Dept. — meaning millions of Americans are staring at the likelihood that their lifetime earning potential will be diminished and, combined with the predicted slow economic recovery, their transition into productive members of society could be put on hold for an extended period of time.”
Wow, congrats everyone fully half of the demographic historically associated with violent social change is out of work and pissed. That’s not good.
