This picture was the on front page of WSJ yesterday (2/3/09). The title was “Sign of the Times: A Thousand Line Up for 35 Jobs in Miami.” The caption was “Gloomy Prospects: People began lining up Saturday to apply for Miami firefighter jobs Monday. Consumer spending fell in December for the fifth month in a row, and a Federal Reserve survey finds banks are keeping a tight grip on lending.”
