US unemployment reaches 2.6 million

When I read a forecast on US unemployment a year ago, I though a million unemployed was on the high side. But now, unemployment is the US is 2.6 million year-to-date 2008. From the graph, unemployment started to rise sharply after August reaching the peak of 588K in November 2008. It's the historical-worst for 16 years.
