WORSE THAN 2008 RECESSION: Coronavirus panic sends nearly 3.3 million Am...

< br />The numbers are in: and nearly 3.3 Million Americans filed for unemployment in the week ending March 21st -- that's a LOT more than any single week during the 2008 recession (the highest then was 665,000 jobs lost). After 113 months of JOB increase, we saw a 1,052 percent increase of JOBLESSNESS. This is depression-era kind of news, and it's going to get worse as employers attempt to figure out how to make mortgage payments (Cheesecake Factory announced today they're struggling to stay in business). Coronavirus is a scary virus, and Americans are dying. But we HAVE to figure out a way to get back to work (and we should look at Germany for an example of how to do it). Big banks should at least contribute to the cause, and suspend all mortgage payments for the next three months...they're already doing it in California. But what about the rest of America? We cannot let the fight against COVID-19 tank our economy.
