There is no doubt that we’re all living difficult times. Uncertainty and insecurity have been a constant in our lives, and while the situation is getting worse to millions of Americans, the stock market has been hitting record highs and it seems to be still profiting during this storm. Every week, we have been reporting how the unemployment rates are sky-rocketing, but this time we’re going to be graphical about it, with updated data for you to clearly understand the dimension of this downfall.
Our goal here is not to make you lose your expectations about recovering from this crash, but to give you a realistic perception of the situation. We want to report you what the mainstream media is failing to share, whether because they want to give their version of the truth or because they’re hiding the real numbers and projections. The main point is to question ourselves: “why with over 30 million job losses and a crash in our economy, the Wall Street is still managing to ascend through a crisis that is literally tearing people’s lives?” or, in a shorter note: “to whom this crisis was created for?”
