Filed under: Etc.Sad SadBusiness Blitz

Ouch!

It's a tough job market everywhere, but we'd suggest getting out of these areas if you're unemployed and looking for a job!

Check out the top ten US metropolitan areas in which it is the most difficult to get a job, out of the 50 largest U.S. metropolitan areas by population…AFTER THE JUMP!

But hey! There's hope!

According to Paul Forster, the CEO of Indeed.com, there HAS been improvement over the last 12 months!

He explains:

"Of the 10 cities with the most population per job posting, there are 62 percent more jobs on average than a year ago."

Just gotta keep at it, and try not to get too discouraged! We're getting there, guys!

Is Jessica Simpson And Eric Johnson's Relationship On The Rocks??

Filed under: Jessica SimpsonLove Line

Oh boy! Given her past history of rushing into relationships, we wouldn't be surprised if this were, in fact, the case!

According to the new issue of OK! Magazine, Jessica Simpson's relationship with Eric Johnson may not be as perfect as the singer would like the world to think, and it's gotten so bad that it's unclear if they'll actually even make it down the aisle!

A source has revealed that Jessica is becoming increasingly unhappy with many things about her husband-to-be, including the fact that she has been "reaching into her pocketbook regularly to pay the bills" because his current unemployment has left him "short on cash." The former NFL player also seems to enjoy the free ride, and Jessica thinks "he brags too much about their life." He was also reported to be so drunk recently at an Aspen nightclub that he "literally fell to the street as he stumbled out."

Geesh! When it rains, it pours!

If these reports are actually true, then we're glad that Jessica is noticing these issues and letting herself be bothered by them, instead of just ignoring them for the sake of getting married again.

However, we hope that she's addressing her problems with him, so they can both work together to fix this stuff before it's too late and vows have been exchanged!

Remember, bb! Speak NOW or forever hold your peace!

Christian Bale Gives Deets On Long Hair

Filed under: Christian Bale

christain-bale-long-hair-is.jpg

If you saw Christian Bale at the Golden Globes on Sunday, you might notice he is sporting some shaggy hair. We figured it was a movie role, but he says otherwise.

Bale revealed:

“In truth, you know what this is? This is unemployment, this is all this is.

I haven’t worked since ‘The Fighter,’ and it’s nice to just not bother cutting your hair. When you’re [not] in a job that everything always has to be, you know, worked out for a character, I just sort of let it all hang out, but it’s unemployment, that’s all it is.”

He's shooting a movie in a couple week, so we'll just, eh, enjoy it while it lasts!

Filed under: Sad SadBusiness Blitz

Does this mark the end of MySpace? It doesn't support the contrary.

Execs at MySpace made the official announcement today that they are laying of 47% of their workforce for the social networking site. CEO Mike Jones noted that the percentage would find approximately 500 employees across all of their global divisions out of work. Though this is a massive loss of their workforce, Mike tried to put a positive spin on the change and hinted that the changes to come could save the company. He explained:

Yoga Studios Offer Free Classes For Unemployed!

Filed under: InspirationFitnessYogaWellness

This is a great idea!

Sometimes being unemployed is just as stressful, if not more, than actually having one!

A variety of yoga studios across the country are now offering FREE classes, so many people struggling to find work don't have to cut exercise out of their schedule!

Columbus yoga instructor Zack Lynn explains:

"We didn't want them to have to choose, 'Should I eat today or go take this class?' We wanted to give them the ability to do both."

New York instructor Jo Sgammato reiterates:

"It helps to quiet the mind and helps people realize that this is a temporary situation. If somebody comes all the way here and tells us they want to take that free class because they're unemployed, we're going to believe them."

What an amazing way to give back! And we're sure it's very much appreciated by those who definitely need that time during the day to re-focus and de-stress!
