City has worst unemployment numbers since 1993

From NY1:

The New York State Department of Labor is calling the current unemployment numbers released today, the worst in 16 years.

The unemployment numbers for New York City shot up to 8.1 percent last month, from 6.9 percent in January.

The numbers for the state have risen to 7.8 percent last month from 7 percent.

Things not looking too bright in the rest of the country, either.

It's a shame unemployment up, the mayor wants cuts and wants to close down firehouses. Some city council people get paid big bucks and are a no show half the times. I think the people standing on the lines at unemployment should start to look into running for city council seats the pay is good and you don't need any experience just be a voice for the people and keep your promises.

Hey, the pundits have said its over!

Check out Japan's market. They still have not recovered after lots of false starts.

They will say anything to keep shovels in the ground!
