The jobless rate jumped to 8.1% (As an aside, do you remember when they called it unemployment rate? Jobless sounds much better, don't it?), and another 600,000 jobs have been lost, bringing the total since December of 2007 to 4.4 million.

I don't know why anyone is concerned, The Chosen One told us the economic stimulus plan would create 3.5 million jobs. So as soon as Joe the Investment Banker gets fired, he can go to work as Joe the Bridge Builder.
