The progression of the depression from an unemployment point of view. Note how the areas least effected are the ones that are termed "fly over" country by the coastal elites. Also note how those places are mostly agricultural (exception for the great western desert noted). They may be out of work, but it strikes me that they won't starve (assuming a willingness to work).
Let me know how raising food in the middle of your asphalt jungles works out for you, Change-oids.
