PICK OF THE WEEK
WATCH THE US ECONOMY DETERIORATE
Created by labor writer LaToya Egwuekwe, colour-coded US map tracks the rate of unemployment, state by state and county by county, from 2007 to 2011. The colour black indicates areas with unemployment rates higher than ten percent, and by the end of the 43 second video, most of the states are cratering out. No wonder some people are struggling to get by.
