Outten & Golden: Empowering Employees in the Workplace

Staying Afloat Despite the Horrible Jobs Report

February 5th, 2009 | Bob Rosner

Unfortunately, it shouldn’t be a surprise that on the same day the cockpit voice recorder for US Airways Flight 1549 was released, the latest jobless claims report echoed a similar refrain.

Sully, the hero pilot who made the water landing, said, “We’re going to be in the Hudson.” And the economy appears to be following an identical trajectory. It’s heading for a crash landing, with the number of Americans claiming unemployment benefits for the first time exceeding 600,000. The highest number in 26 years.

Tonight on On the Money I’ll be discussing strategies to cope with an economy that is heading down, down, down. We’ll replace cynicism with solutions as we offer advice about how to keep your job, find a new job and how to become your own boss despite the deteriorating economy. News you can really use.

Don’t wallow in the bad news, rise above it. And we’ll show you how, tonight.
