February Job Losses Worst in Five Years

News Flash: Job Losses Worst in Five Years

Analysts are interpreting the recent Labor Department reports as an obviously weakening US job market. The 63,000 jobs cut in February made it the worst month for job loss in five years, and the cuts were a noticeable increase from January's cuts that amounted to 22,000. Job losses were spread across multiple industries —factories, construction companies, mortgage brokers, real-estate firms, retailers, temporary-help firms, child day-care providers, hotels, educational services, accounting firms and computer designers were all part of the 63,000. In reaction to the report, President Bush said, "It's clear our economy has slowed," but he's relying on the economic stimulus to generate growth in the coming months.

I have pretty good job security at the moment. Lots of people lost their jobs in the 80s/90s when things weren't going so well, but everything's great now, so they're hiring lots of new people. Sucks for everyone else though :(

Princessjaslew, I agree with you and I did the same thing 3 years ago. It just seems when our great president got into office everything slowed down and went down hill.

the reason why i went to grad school 4 years ago was because the economy was slowing down. i keep hoping that by the time i'm ready to really enter the real world (and hopefully as an adult), the economy would be better...talk about day-dreams!
