This Just In: National Unemployment at 8.9%; Men Losing More Jobs Than Women

The government just announced that the national unemployment rate has taken a leap from 8.5 percent to 8.9 percent and that 539,000 jobs were lost last month. It also reported that more men than women are losing their jobs due to hard-hit, male-dominated industries such as construction and finance.

Honestly, I know more women than men that are laid off. I guess that’s obviously my little microcosm. Regardless, the stink continues and we must persevere in keeping ourselves up, confident and steadfast. Pink Slippers, stand tall. Something’s coming soon! I just know it!

Happy Birthday, Coca-Cola!

See? Anyone can bounce back!
