Nice graph, like the article, but we do see that unemployment does not actually follow the economy, so when the economy improves, it will take a while before we see a different graph.


We can see the economy improving over the last few months. There is a gap between recovery in e.g. stocks and actual economy. After the stocks the unemployment will go down.

Recession and crisis slowed down the economic line of every nation. During this time many employers lost their job and became jobless. The recession or its remnants are going to be with us for many years as far as job creation is concerned. If we compare recession affected more women employers then men. But now the recession has been slow down. Recently I got news that http://naukriforwomen.com a job portal for women job aspirants only. Really it’s a sign of development in women empowerment. We hope this will live and fulfill our expectation.
