Hurricane Katrina’s 521,000 Pink Slips

The official numbers are out. Katrina took about a cool half million jobs out of the economy. Now granted, some of those jobs included “bead necklace maker,” “crappy radio station WSUX 95.5,” and other jobs that won’t have a real impact on the rest of the country… but that’s still a large chunk of fresh job hunters that will add to already pressure to the already dwindling supply.

If only they were willing to move to India… they might actually find our lost manufacturing base!
