February’s unemployment rose to 8.1%, its highest level 25 more than 25 years.

The economy lost more than 600,000 jobs for the third month in a row.  At this point roughly 12.5 million Americans are out of work.

Will It Continue?

Many have lost jobs, some have had to take pay cuts or forgo pay increases.  Still others have lost benefits they once have had or have had their hours reduced.

What Do You Think?

Have you been hit by these cuts?

Ho long do you  think it will last?
