We have updated our chart showing the number of jobs lost in 2008, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. As you can see, the job loss in September was particularly bad. In a bad year, September managed to be the worst so far, with 159,000 jobs bleeding out of our economy.
This statistic is, of course, real bad news for the McCain campaign. Americans are waking up to the fact that the trickle-down approach of the Bushies is not working, if it ever did, and they are looking for something different. What is McCain offering? Just more of the same.
