Unemployment Should Be The Focus

In Uncategorized on June 16, 2011 at 1:44 pm

Consider the following statistics:

12 million – Number of people unemployed.
4 million- Number of people unemployed for one year or more.

30% – chance of someone unemployed for five weeks finding a job.
10% – chance of someone unemployed for twenty-seven weeks finding a job.

25% – increase in unemployed people from December 2009 to December 2010.
30% – people, including college graduates, unemployed for more than a year.

Shouldn’t politicians be focused on ways to reduce unemployment?
