As you've probably read (right here on Fresh Loaf!), metro Atlanta is #1 at losing jobs, having kissed goodbye more than 30,000 positions since August 2010. Hooray.
Here's a particularly depressing quote from the AJC about Atlanta being the best at being the worst:
“Out of almost 400 metropolitan areas, we’re dead last and nobody is competing with us for that distinction,” said Chris Cunningham, a BLS statistician in Atlanta. “It’s pretty bad and it has been the same story for the last two, three years.”
But, you know what? EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK. Says who? This little brown owl on one of Hallmark's new condolence cards for the recently unemployed ...
Hallmark's creative director told NPR (via Gawker), "A job, like any loss, is a grieving process. We offer more ['you'll get through this' cards], versus dwelling on the loss of the job itself."
Really, to anyone planning on buying a cute greeting card for a jobless friend, maybe they'd just prefer a sincere, "That blows," and the $3.49 you would've spent.
