CHART OF THE DAY: The Brand New Scariest Jobs Chart Ever

I am reading: CHART OF THE DAY: The Brand New Scariest Jobs Chart Ever from sebrenner’s shared items in Google Reader.


We used to say that the chart showing the pace of this jobs “recovery” vs. all other jobs recoveries was the scariest jobs chart ever (see here for example).

But we’ve since changed our mind.

Be afraid.
