7. the recovery from 2.2 million jobs lost in the 1st quarter of 2009
to 497,000 jobs gained in the first quarter of 2011. What you talk about is always going to be the case - for some people. I've been underemployed for 24 years now since I quit my job with the war machine. Heck, one of my first moves was to goto graduate school in 1988 - because I couldn't find a job, ANY job, much less one that utilized my math degree. I moved to Iowa in 1998 and I got really sick of the media talking about the prosperity. Oh happy day, all Americans were so happy and prosperous in that great economy. Well, there I was, working as a temp and unable to find a non-temp job. And that was still true until 2002, but even then I was still working just part-time, unable to find full time employment.
