Why unemployment is still going up

It may be Ohio, but none of this is good for us. News from Ohio on ever more job losses there. See the map the Columbus Dispatch has there: all those counties highlighted on the eastern border of Ohio are as much part of greater Pittsburgh as anywhere else. A lot of what it talks about are steel plants there. It is remarkable how the global steel industry has all but shut down for the time being. Production around the world is down 50-70 or more percent in some countries. If this was 1982 here... it would be a lot worse than 1982 here. Think about that.


Not related.. and just to be clear I have no idea the answer. But I wonder who in town is going to:

Could the labor pool in the Pittsburgh area be growing because people from Ohio are moving east?
