It seems to me like the most out-of-work industry in America right now is the architecture industry. Apparently it's a small field of only a couple of hundred thousand people at best, and among them, an estimated 50,000 are out of work. According to the New York Times, the architecture industry as a whole is facing over 40% unemployment. But I'm willing to bet that here in New York City, it's a lot more like 60%.
As my friend Roger always likes to say to me, "See that homeless guy over there? He used to be an architect."
When is it all gonna turn around? Soon, I hope. Or else I'm gonna have to start asking for change.
