Job Loses in Post WWII Recessions

NOTE: Click graph to enlarge.

This graph shows the job losses from the start of the employment recession, in percentage terms (as opposed to the number of jobs lost).

The current recession is now the 2nd worst recession since WWII in percentage terms -- and also in terms of the unemployment rate (only early '80s recession was worse).
