Millions of Unemployed Face Years Without Jobs
"...the human toll of the recession continues to mount, with millions of Americans remaining out of work, out of savings and nearing the end of their unemployment benefits."
This is a humanitarian disaster in the making, far bigger than Haiti or anywhere else. And the response: Spending freezes and fiscal conservatism!
It's primarily been an economic story unitl now, but it will soon affect the very fabric of our society. It will lead to higher crime rates and significantly higher levels of disorder.
This is the result of the sick, destructive, neo-liberal, free market fundamentalism that hss gripped our country and already destroyed many of the smaller economies in the world.
