Job loss: It’s not just in the Rust Belt anymore

Check out this interactive map by The New York Times.

It shows what areas of the country have been the hardest hit by the Recession.

You can see the Rust Belt places that have been impacted, like Michigan and Ohio. But there’s also some very dark patches in Sun Belt states like California, Nevada, and Arizona, places that experienced a (now burst) housing bubble.

Thank you Dad, for pointing this map out to me.
