Men Bear the Brunt

From Heather Boushey:

"Lay-offs were again widespread in February. Half of the job losses—50.3 percent—since the recession began in December 2007 have occurred in construction and manufacturing: 904,000 construction jobs and 1.3 million manufacturing jobs have disappeared over the course of this recession. As of January, men accounted for 78.5 percent of the jobs lost in these two industries, and 78.0 percent of the jobs lost overall. As a result, the share of adult men with a job is at an all-time low 68.9 percent."

Men: Don't just take this bad news lying down. Get up, have a couple of beers and THEN lay down.
