Week after week the new unemployment numbers are remaining high. They say we now have a total of 6.1 million people in the US collecting unemployment. They are watching this number closely because history shows that when weekly numbers start to decline it is 6 to 10 weeks before the end of the recession. So far the number has not declined. This weeks number was higher than expected. What has happened to the $787 billion stimus package that was to "save or create" 3.5 million jobs. The numbers are not showing that it is working. When will we start to see progress in the proper direction?
