I'm not expecting things to get better any time soon. I think the soonest we will see UE get even close to what it was before (probably not even that low) would be 2014. JMO.

the unemployment rate isnt going anywhere any time soon. I just dont believe it will b/c the dollar is getting weaker and although we get a small tax break for hiring ppl, its still too expensive for small business owners - speaking from my own experience. And with that being said, most jobs are only offering minimum wage give or take a dollar or two. Thats not a big difference from the unemployment checks from what I understand.
