  • Of course. And then in a couple weeks the weather will warm up and they will all be rehired at the resorts as pool attendants.

  • jml6m. This is not really "bad" news. It's rather like taking one's temperature and discovering it to be 98.6. Today, these numbers are just the norm in the current economy, IMHO. I only look at them to confirm that some disaster hasn't occurred that has not already been reflected in 100 other places 6 days earlier.

  • On positive side there should be an HLF recruiter in front of every unemployment office to help out, business is good
