Today's "Mancession" will change everything

Subject: txt MANWAR econ othr bdd -
Three-quarters of the seven million jobs that have vanished in the recession belonged to men.

The trend got Larry Summers, the President's top economic adviser, speculating recently,

"When the economy recovers five years from now, one in six men who are 25 to 54 will not be working."

Ouch. While the decline in construction and manufacturing is hurting men in the workforce, expansion of health care and education is helping women, who now represent the majority of college graduates...

[Not to worry, it's just men. Re: graduates, feminist mission accomplished: men have been marginalized.]
