Job lines outside Red Lobster

redlobsterjobsYesterday I got a strong dose of what a rapidly-rising unemployment rate looks like.

For more than three hours, job hunters gathered outside a Red Lobster in Eastern Henrico.

Yesterday morning I drove past the new Red Lobster on Laburnum Ave, which is at the White Oak Village development. There were at least 30 people waiting in a line outside.

Thursday was the first day the restaurant is accepting in-person job applications. The restaurant plan on opening in February. I might add that the restaurant is around the corner (as much as anything can be around a corner in a brand new shopping center) from a Circuit City.

When I drove past again at 1:30 p.m., which is when I snapped the photo, there were still a handful of people waiting outside.

Am I misinterpreting this?
