More than 500,000 U.S. jobs lost in one week

More than half a million workers in America lost their jobs this past week according to the latest unemployment report from the government.

It’s the fastest rise in joblessness since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks seven years ago. And the total number of people on benefit rolls jumped to the highest level since 1983, according to Bloomberg.
