Laid Off

We encountered this video about the frustration of being laid off from our partners at Economy Beat.

The video was first posted at the beginning of the economic crisis in December 2008, and the artist C.H.A.Z.Z has since created an entire album devoted to work, with songs like "I Just Got Paid", "I Hate My Job" and "Quarterlife Crisis". Sharing this video is a cynical-but-humorous way to start The Brian Lehrer Show's focus on the job market in 2010. We will bring you stories from job seekers and as much advice as we can find. You can participate with our upcoming Facebook jobs page [under construction], leave a comment below or post under the Employment category on the ongoing Uncommon Economic Indicators page. To all you job seekers, we wish you better fortune in 2010!
