I an article in the USA today on May 20th 2011. It says that job creation continues to stagger at the slowest post recession rate since the Great Depression. The nation has 5% fewer jobs today – a loss of 7 million – than it did when the recession began in December 2007. That is by far the worst performance of job generation following any fo the dozen recessions since the 1930′s. If this were a typical recovery, nearly 10 million more people would be working today than when the recession officially ended in June 2009. It officially ended in June 2009? What a joke. Tell that to all the unemployed people. This unique recession has been particularly unfriendly to job seekers, experts say. “There was too much employment in housing, and that isn’t coming back – and frankly shouldn’t come back” says Amar Bhide, a professor at Tufts university in Massachusetts. The housing collapse and productivity gains on the factory floor have made it hard for the economy to absorb workers without a college degree and young people generally, says Carl Camden, president of Kelly Services, a global staffing firm. Manufacturers are producing more value than ever in the USA with a fraction of the workers needed before, he says. The Health care field added jobs during the recession and they still are adding jobs. Construction lost 2 million jobs. It has only gained 400,000 jobs during the so called recovery.
