U.S. employers cut 80,000 jobs in March

Most jobs lost in five years; unemployment rate at 5.1 percent

WASHINGTON - Itís no longer a question of recession or not. Now itís how deep and how long.

Workersí pink slips stacked ever higher in March as jittery employers slashed 80,000 jobs, the most in five years, and the national unemployment rate climbed to 5.1 percent. Job losses are nearing the staggering level of a quarter-million this year in just three months.

For the third month in a row total U.S. employment rolls shrank ó often a telltale sign that the economy has jolted dangerously into reverse.

....

All told, the economy now has lost 232,000 jobs in the first three months of this year.

I, for one, am not worried if I ever lose my job as my options are fairly clear cut:
 
1.) suicide, or
2.) bank robbery
 
#2 is an option only if #1 fails.

I think bank robbery's a better option. Or you can just rob a wealthy relative or neighbor.
Nisar main teri galiyon k, ay watan, k jahan
Chali hai rasm k koi na sar utha k chalay..!!
Hai ehl e dil k liye ab ye nazm e bast o kushad
K sang o khisht muqayyid hain aur sag azaad..!!
