I was surprised to hear that overall unemployment is as high as 9% in the States. And I've heard some horrific figures for youth unemployment in certain areas...Over here it's like the seventies and eighties all over again. And I don't remember before that, but I guess it was like that for decades before, too. Last year was the first year in over a decade that we had net emigration. But you don't hear of so many people going to the States - I think Australia must be full of Irish people looking for work!!
