Very interesting map that shows unemployment from 2007 to 2009 can be found here.
You know, Obama said 1 in 10 is unemployed. I was like, really.
Ten grownups in my family.
Mom- not employed, doesn’t want to be
Dad- not employed, doesn’t want to be
baby sister- not employed, doesn’t want to be
BIL 2b- employed
So my family’s unemployment rate is 25%.
Wow. I didn’t realize how bad it is.
And that’s without taking into account people like my sister’s best friend who work full time and make $12,000/year.
