Perspectives on employment

Posted at 1:24 PM on February 12, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

The economy is a principle topic of concern and coverage, so I decided to pull together a few recent blog entries with different perspectives on the job front:

* Chris Farrell shares a chart that puts job losses in perspective. Warning: This isn't a good perspective.

* Polinaut Tom Scheck notes that DFL Rep. Jim Oberstar says Minnesota stands to gain 66,000 jobs from the stimulus bill. Scheck also whipped out his calculator, because the math didn't add up.

* Bob Collins not only pondered the 'man' factor but he also live-blogged along a Midmorning show: How soon should kids get on a career track? Visit for the comments and add your own.
