Holy Crap

Unders win again.

The nation's unemployment rate jumped to 8.5 percent in March, the highest since late 1983, as a wide range of employers eliminated a net total of 663,000 jobs.

...about half of jobs lost are in construction and manufacturing.

...U6, the broadest measure of unemployment, is up to 15.6%, up from 9.3% a year ago.
