Nancy Pelosi’s blog posted this scary jobs graph that shows what 3.6 million jobs lost in 13 months looks like. The graph shows the job losses (from the peak job month) for each of the last two recessions as a comparison. This really shows how much worse it is this time around. Because by all estimates there are more jobs that will be lost before it starts getting better.
This is bad! I cannot believe that there isn’t more public outrage at the Senate Republicans trying to hijack and/or obstruct the stimulus bill approved by the House and remove aid to the states that will help create an additional 600,000 jobs.
