But darn it lets worry about Sanford cheating on his wife


June 25 (Bloomberg) -- The number of Americans filing claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week and the total number receiving payments increased, indicating the labor market may take longer to stabilize.

Initial jobless claims rose by 15,000 to 627,000 in the week ended June 20, from a revised 612,000 the week before, the Labor Department said today in Washington. The number of people collecting unemployment insurance gained by 29,000 in the prior week, to 6.74 million.

Recent economic data shows some areas of the economy, such as housing and manufacturing, are seeing a smaller pace of decline, and the Federal Reserve said yesterday after a two-day meeting in Washington that the economy’s slump is “slowing.” Even so, companies have been loath to hire new employees, in part because they are waiting for sustained gains in demand

It will be hard to convince Americans the recession is over because GDP increases by .01%. This is a jobless recovery. Demand is just not going to return for a very long time. 5-10 years to get back to 2005 levels. That means unemployment will probably bottom around 11.5% and stay there for a while. GDP will be flat and by definition the recession will be over.

Try telling that to the millions of people on Unemployment and in Bankruptcy and foreclosure. This is a long long way from anything resembling prosperity.

It's more than demand. Taxes are making it more profitable for companies to produce their products elsewhere. We need the jobs here. An era is ending in my neck of the woods. It's very sad. This is just one of many companies around here to close.

Is that the Cigar factory in ybor City?
I live across the penisula form you in SE florida.
I cannot remember ever seeing the lack of employment oppurtunites like there are now. The hopitality industry is stripped to bones. The financial industry (my industry) is in shambles; it is hard to watch. Oh and the foreclosures are not stopping anytime soon.

This plant is actually in East Tampa, but retail in Ybor City is concerned. It's been very tough around here also, but--Thank God--not as bad as where my DD lives in Ohio. Unemployment rate in her county is over 15%. I shutter to think how bad it may get if cap and trade passes.

Cap and Trade, that is exactly what businesses need now.
Our leaders are so lost it is unconscienable. And yesterday Barney the Dinosaur wants Freddie and Fannie to relax lending for Condo purchases.
Living here in S Florida I know first hand that is exactly what blew the Housing bubble to unsustainable levels and the subsequent complete collapse of the condo industry. Yet they want to do it all over again.

UN FN BELIEVEABLE!
