Your Good News of the Day: US weekly jobless claims lowest since 1969; unemployment rolls shrink

That's right, lowest since 1969!  I was nine years old in that year.


  1. 1969,I stated my first job in October of that year. Building railroad cabooses at International Car Co.,atone time the largest builder of railway cabooses in the USA.

    Eighteen years of age,cleared $100/week.

    Driving a '67 Mustang Fastback.

    Thought I had the world by the ass.

  2. After graduating U of Mich in December 1968, I started my first "grownup" job the next month, teaching HS freshman French and English for the sterling annual gross salary of $6900/year.
    My dad loaned me the price of a 1968 Fiat Spider 850, which I paid off in monthly installments. And paid rent on a shared apartment. And bought clothes and food, and car insurance, and had some fun to boot.

  3. The money that is saved in unemployment benefits can now go to illegals! YAY!
