I know I’m late on the draw, but Happy National Unemployment Day!
According to my friends at Crackpot Press, National Unemployment Day is “a day set aside to celebrate the joys of not having to go to a job”. My buddy @unemployedbush is celebrating over on Twitter. Go give him “best wishes”!
And it’s a perfect day to celebrate, isn’t it?
Unemployment is at 9.5%, the highest since August 1983, and we added 467,000 unemployed folks to the rolls in June. Makes you wonder if this anticipated recovery we keep hearing about is ever coming.
