While the unemployment rate in the private sector skyrockets past 10% the unemployment rate among government workers remains steady, at 0%. When asked about the ongoing severe economic downturn a spokesperson for a large government workers association replied, "Recession, what recession?"

The Stu Pitt award this week goes to everyone who didn't go to work for the government 30 years ago. If you had you wouldn't be facing unemployment now, you'd have a nice guaranteed salary, terrific benefits for life, and at least one big fat pension!

The State of California

Deservedly awarded to the stupid state for raising taxes in February (sales tax, car tax, state income tax) on the already overtaxed people of California, which will reduce consumer spending, reduce tax revenues to the state, add to California's 10% unemployment rate and make the worst recession in history even worse.

Congratulations, California, you earned the Stu Pitt award!
