This is NOT meant as a 'political' question so I don't want to hear any L/R CANT! My question is, in your opinion; has employment picked up at all since I've been gone (it's been around a year). And from here it seems like employment has been FLAT and has been getting worse. This article seems to confirm that?
If you ask me, this kind of stuff is scarey, very scarey. Because large groups of unemployed people have never been stable or rational if one looks at the historical record. And it's also a shame that we can't seem to solve this problem.
