U.S. Unemployment, 1890 - 2008

24.1 percent unemployment in 1934. Things COULD get worse, peeps, but probably not as bad as that.

    Unfortunately, in my household, it's 100% unemployment.

    But your point is a good one.

    Jeanloui, what do you do to keep yourself from going nuts as you search for a job?

    my understanding that todays number for unemployment is worst then it was back then because todays number only takes into account those tring to get unemployment benefits not total job growth or lost .
