According to a report job losses have slowed dramatically since the first quarter of 2009. For the past two years Americans have been seeing up to 700,000 jobs eliminated every month due to the economic recession, but this trend began to turn around. In the fourth quarter of 2009, Americans only saw a reduction of about 69,000 jobs a month which is drastically lower than the previous statistic. The White House is attributing this progress to the stimulus plan that was enacted. In order to get all of the details follow this link and decide for yourself.
