Unemployment---It Could Be Worse

Even though things are bad here in the US with unemployment above 8% for the first time in years, things are worse across the world:

The United Kingdom's unemployment could reach over 10% later this year according to the BBC

South Africa's unemployment rate drops to 21.9% (Bloomberg).

But what is interesting is that the unemployment rate is actually lower in France (7.8% according to the AFP).
