Jobs In Pictures

For you visual learners, two telling charts to illustrate the day's news from the Labor Department that unemployment dropped in January to its lowest level in almost three years, with a net gain of 243,000 jobs. To be clear: The same jerks still run things, but it's good to see fewer people hurting from it.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
