Economy Jobless Claims

The government reported the economy lost over a half a million jobs last month, the worse month in over 30 years:

Check out the staggering statistics and predictions for the future…

The U.S. recession deepened last month as U.S. companies shed jobs at the fastest rate since the early 1970s, pushing the unemployment rate to its highest level in 15 years.

The figures suggest the year-old recession will approach or even exceed the 1981-1982 downturn in severity and support expectations that Federal Reserve officials will soon lower interest rates to levels not seen in a half century.

Nonfarm payrolls, which are calculated by a survey of establishments, plunged a larger-than-expected 533,000 in November, the U.S. Labor Department said Friday, the 11th-straight decline and largest since December 1974. The economy has lost more than 1.2 million jobs in the last three months alone following big revisions to September and October that showed even steeper job cuts than first

SMH. Lord Help Us All.

    Please world leader sort this out. Do not try to gain political points for your own professional gain – act for the greater good. Take note Prime Minister Brown.

    …and I hate to say this but if the auto companies dont get bailed out (although they dont deserve it the way the “CEOs” ran those companies in the ground for the last couple of decades) millions of people will be out of a job and the business surrounding car dealerships, your local mechanic shops (who will see a decline in customers) etc.

    Looks like the government will be taking over the auto business…then it will really be lord help us all cause they cant seem to do anything cause they cant put that Repub/Democrat ish aside for one moment and do there job!

    Take a leaf out of Obama’s book, he has a specialist on Depression Era Economics. You could have squirrelled away money instead you wasted our taxes.

    This will be a good time for people to review or create a budget and live within their means. I can’t tell you all the people crying over homes they knew they could not afford when they bought them…sad but a good lesson to learn after all this!

    you people better wake up and see what’s going on with this generated “crisis”.

  • Boo-z

    WASN’T IT JUST YESTERDAY YOU MADE A POST ABOUT THE CEO’S IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY BEGGING FOR WELFARE? DO YOU REALIZE THE UNEMPLOYMENT LINES WILL BE A WHOLE LOT LONGER, THE ECONOMY A LOT WEAKER, AND FAMILIES EVEN MORE WORSE OF IF THEY DON’T GET A BAIL OUT LIKE THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS DID??? THE AUTO INDUSTRY AFFECTS NOT ONLY THE ASSEMBLY PLANTS BUT STEEL MILLS, HUNDREDS OF PARTS MANUFACTURERS, THE TIRE INDUSTRY, FABRIC AND TEXTILE INDUSTRIES, NOT TO MENTION LOCAL DEALERSHIPS!

    We all really need to be fiscally responsible. Buying food and cooking, less eating out. No more spending the paycheck on an outfit or bottles at the clubs. Hold on to your hard earned money, because we’re in for a tough ride…

    Happy Friday shouts to Be, Redd, Nikki U

  • Aunt Viv poppin' in

    Hi Redd!

    I’ve been good, really haven’t been on here much. But I wanted to commend you on your comments in the William Balfour post.

    HAS ANYBODY HEARD ABOUT O.J GETTING 15 YEARS IN THE PEN????

  • Illuminate Truth

    “I am watching CNN and all the talk is about the O.J
    Simpson well they got their distraction”

    @ Nelsan Ellis’ Lafayette……..

    White folks day of salvation…..OJ getting convicted. I guess they said we got Obama so they taking back OJ. We can’t hold too many victories at one time.

    You dead on about distractions though. The media always finding some form of distraction that is irrelevant to take people’s mind off the relevant. Collectively, the American attention span is probably no longer than 30 seconds so this is an easy task (smh).

  • southern sway

    This is crazy and sad to see and hear about but we are a strong country and I think we will get through this. I’m lucky to still be able to work and do over time for the holidays but I feel for the people that won’t really have much for x-mas and just to get by day to day all we can do is pray and tyr to help out those in need as much as we can.

  • Mase

    Wow, those numbers are truly staggering and frightening! Seems like everybody got a side hustle going (including me). Good thinking, even before these rough times.

    @Illuminate

    Good advice dogg…Never heard of the Sin Fund before, but I might put some money it….Shameful, but a brutha gotta survive…. (shrugging shoulders)

    This goes to show you shouldn’t believe all these conservative think tanks who preach privatization and lassez-faire economics…..

    These same think tanks hate government intervention but are now crying like a teenager who moved out, effed up and wants to move back in with his/her parents.

    DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE……

  • oakland

    I don’t think they need to be bail out. If they people working in the auto industries are the only one to get a bail out so they can keep there jobs , who is going to but all theses cars the will produce. almost half the working nation is out of a job and have cars already that the will loss, because unemployment don’t pay enough to substain a household. And know one is hiring they are laying off. Bush is saying they are going to go under anyway. So why bail them out
