Successful Industries

People are still worried about the economy. Although tax season is here and the stimulus checks are being distributed people will not use that money to spend, but rather to pay bills and save it for when times get worse. According to the Small Business Administration (SBA) the U.S lost 2.97 million jobs in 2008. According to CNN Money the U.S has lost 1.8 million jobs in the past three months. The SBA did state that industries like transportation, manufacturing, utilities, construction, professional, and businesses services were hit the hardest there was a job gain in education and health services. I think that people are seeing how bad the economy is and are making decisions to stay in school longer or return to school. As far as the health services, I think people are coming to realization that this industry will always be around regardless if the economy fails.

  1. The apple picture is great! I didn't know about all the jobs that were lost, thats a huge number. I was watching the news a few days ago and there was a report on ICE raids which deport illegal immigrants that have American jobs so that American citizens can take jobs that are rightfully theres. I hope this helps people that are losing their jobs. It would be interesting to see where the most amount of jobs have been lost too. Oh, and in the new report it talked about how retirees are having to go back to work because. How sad.
