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.
