The Quarterly Employment Survey out today shows that 46,700 jobs disappeared between December and March. That’s 2.6% of jobs gone in a single quarter. Unemployment is probably well over 6%, we’ll find out exactly what it is later this week.
47,000 jobs lost while the government has done next to nothing to create and save jobs. In fact they’re busy sacking public sector workers by the hundreds. Will this finally be enough to wake the government from its slumber?
We need a real jobs plan – now.
UPDATE: No Right Turn pitches in here.
