Today’s numbers on the unemployment are bleak! Eeek!
This morning, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that 598,000 Americans had lost their jobs in January (7.6%). These jobs were across industries throughout the country.
Incidentally, I just read about LaidOffCamp, a networking site for people who have lost their jobs. (You can find them on twitter, and facebook). They are based out in San Fransisco. Is there anything like this here in the Cities?
Check February joblistings for local available jobs.
I just went over to Recession Info Center— wow, great website! (thanks Pam!) This website has everything from unemployment benefits, job listings, tips on job searches, extra ways to make money, debt control and housing information.
