A Map Of Unemployment

What Does Unemployment Look Like?

It looks like some biowarfare map of an airborne Ebola or just plain ol' H1N1 epidemic. But someone has made an animated map of the US showing the wave of unemployment county by county over the last two years. Note that most of Michigan starts off in the purple-black range.

"Houston, we've lost a country."

Of Course...

10% unemployment also means 90% employment -- though even that feel-good stat doesn't translate any of the subtlety of quality employment, suitable health care coverage, job satisfaction, worker portability or underemployment.

Dammit, reality sucks.
