This recent inforgraphic on The Great Recession over on Focus.com really puts things into perspective on how bad the Jobless Recovery really is. As the infographic begins, Americans are suffering the highest figures of unemployment since The Great Depression, and the worst part, there’s no end in sight. Employers are still intending to make do with what they have for as long as possible, even though job satisfaction is at an all time low.
Considering that it will take the US nine more years to recover the jobs lost during the recession at the current rate of job creation, it’s unlikely that the economy is going to bounce back quickly. The end of the recession is going to linger on and when the emergency benefits run out for the 4.04 M people on it, it’s going to be obvious that it truly is the Great Recession.
