unemployment wise.. what say you? i'm guessing close to 10% nationwide average by mid 2009':upsidedown:
I'm thinking around 10 by that time.December 05, 2008
Nonfarm payroll employment fell sharply (-533,000) in November, and the unemployment rate rose from 6.5 to 6.7 percent. Job losses were large and widespread across the major industry sectors.... http://www.bls.gov/cps/
I am thinking between 11 and 12 by summer...
I think unemployment will be slowed because of the handouts, I mean bailouts. However, the long-term effects is where the bailouts are really going to screw us. In another year or two the inevitible inflation from the bailouts will cause further problems.
