To be fair, 24% is a *month-over-month* increase, and job cuts are seasonal, especially in January (end of year accounting, holidays over, etc.).

It would be much more useful to compare year-over-year job cuts.

January 2013 jobs report tommorow. That may set the tone for,2013. 180k jobs.

Go F yourself. That's not even enough to keep up with population growth.
