US fired up as unemployment hits all-time low
Unemployment in the US has fallen for the 4th consecutive month in a row, adding credence to the claim that the war on two fronts in the Middle East is at last starting to yield beneficial results.
The US Department of Labor says unemployment amongst men between the ages 17-25 has seen the most dramatic month on month fall since the record levels of 1968-1975. The involvement in Iraq accounted for nearly 600 vacancies in the US job market alone since the start of the year and is seen as a major contributing factor in the State Department’s war on unemployment.
‘The numbers are looking good,’ said one leading economist. ‘No question this has been a military led campaign to reduce unemployment figures and at this rate we can guarantee by the end of the year there won’t be a single kid under 25 left in the US looking for a job.’
