Bush/Cheney Economy in Pictures

If you still have a job but are concerned that you may be on the edge then the following graph will not cheer you up.
The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities has put into graphic form the Cheney-Bush Recession.
The official rate of U.S. unemployment as of the end of January is 7.6%, meaning 11.6 million people are out of work. The U6 rate, which includes discouraged workers and people forced to work part time because they can't find full-time jobs, is 13.9%, or 21.1 million.
