Just a reminder to stock up on natural remedies.

www.medcitynews.com...




About 35 Ohio hospitals are planning layoffs sometime in the next six months, according to a survey by the state’s hospital trade association. The results were part of the Ohio Hospital Association’s HealthBeat newsletter, which said about one-third of respondents were planning employee cut-backs. A total of 110 of the association’s 174 members responded to the survey. The association did not know how many layoffs were planned and would not provide a list of hospitals that said they were planning layoffs.

Jobless rate tops 20% in Martinsville
Thursday, April 2, 2009

By MICKEY POWELL - Bulletin Staff Writer More than one-fifth of Martinsville’s labor force is unemployed as the city’s jobless rate reached a record 20.2 percent in February, Virginia Employment Commission (VEC) figures released Wednesday show. Henry and Patrick counties, as well as the city, saw sharp increases in their jobless rates, the figures reveal. Martinsville once again had the highest unemployment in the state — a distinction it briefly lost in January.

Right.
None of the "official" numbers can be trusted.
This is MSNBC and even these people are reporting larger - depending
on what you consider unemployed.


If part-time and discouraged workers are factored in, the unemployment rate would have been 15.6 percent in March, the highest on records dating to 1994, according to Labor Department data released Friday.

U.S. congressional budget analysts have raised their estimate of the net cost to taxpayers for the government's financial rescue program to $356 billion, an increase of $167 billion from earlier estimates.

They are so full of it. 356 billions? Yeah right. Make it 12.7 trillions and going up fast.... they won't repay those loans. Why? Because the derative bubble is much bigger and the money is being transfered to other banks outside US jurisdiction in Europe... This is a big scam.
