TGIF: 8.5% Unemployment…Here's the Anthem

In honor of another horrific Non-Farm Payroll number, here is the ultimate anthem for the unemployed, George Thorogood & The Destroyers with a live version of “One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer“.

Take it away, George…


From the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
Nonfarm payroll employment continued to decline sharply in March (-663,000),
and the unemployment rate rose from 8.1 to 8.5 percent, the Bureau of Labor
Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported today. Since the recession
began in December 2007, 5.1 million jobs have been lost, with almost two-thirds
(3.3 million) of the decrease occurring in the last 5 months. In March, job
losses were large and widespread across the major industry sectors.

I just report the news, guys.

Try to have a nice weekend, anyway, and thanks for reading this week!
