What They Want for Christmas: Jobs

Excerpts from “The Book of Jobs,” Joseph E. Stiglitz, Vanity Fair:

“There are 6.6 million fewer jobs in the United States than there were four years ago. Some 23 million Americans who would like to work full-time cannot get a job. Almost half of those who are unemployed have been unemployed long-term. Wages are falling—the real income of a typical American household is now below the level it was in 1997.”
