Job Loss

Interesting. Depressing, other adjectives as well:

The nation's unemployment rate bolted to a 14-year high of 6.5 percent in October as another 240,000 jobs were cut, far worse than economists expected and stark proof the economy is deteriorating at an alarmingly rapid pace.

Also keep in mind the unforgotten job losses that result from every lost incumbant seat. Shays has himself added about 20 people to unemployment in this country. Those guys (and girls) haven't been factored in yet.
