Presenting The Totally New Scariest Jobs Chart Ever

Ladies And Gentlemen, We Have A Totally New Scariest Jobs Chart Ever (Business Insider, July 8, 2011):

For a long time we’ve been going with the same Scariest Jobs Chart Ever, which we ran this morning. It shows how bad this “recovery” has been compared to past ones.

It’s really scary, but we’re confident that we have a new winner.

It shows the average duration of unemployment, and it’s skyrocketing without any hint of slowing down.


Even though we’re “creating jobs” each month, this would seem to point to a large, brewing, structural unemployment problem, with a significant chunk of the population permanently out of the workforce. Historically, we’ve never seen anything like this, and the fact that we only had one down-blip during the recovery is stunning.

But this isn’t the only horrible new chart this month.

We’ve compiled several more that will ruin your weekend.

  1. I have been visiting this site since March as this was the only place providing credible, well researched articles on the Japan disaster. You are the only people with the courage to stay on top of this ongoing disaster MSM has blacked out.
    Your articles on other subjects are also credible and very interesting. This article is a good example. MSM covers nothing but tabloid. This is a site I now visit on a regular basis.
    Thank you for the the good reporting, it is sadly lacking in most news outlets.
    Sincerely,
    Marilyn Gjerdrum
