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.

If you count "adverse repossession" squatting, then YES! It's all the rage in Florida now.

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.
