I was home that day. I went to the start page on my desktop and by that time the second plane had hit. I turned on the TV, and I remember saying to myself, thousands are going to die today. I'm still amazed it was only just under 3,000.

I don't know about YOUR area, but around here unemployment is about 2.5 % (Basically everyone capable of working is working. ) and NO ONE has enough help.
Can't blame it on extra money, that ended the 1st of the year.
We just don't have enough people and it's getting worse with the kids going back to school.

Which numbers are being quoted:

A. Eligible workers, or
B. Workers working vs. workers applying for unemployment benefits?

If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

I can't remember what the reason was, but in the days/weeks that followed they reported that there was some reason the buildings weren't as full as normal on that day.

It was early morning but about 17-18k people were in the building at 0845.  About 15K managed to get out before the collapse.  By midday, there would have been close to 50K in the towers…

Would you mind spreading that story to these idiots today who won't settle for anything less than they had before the COVID layoffs, or those who swear they will quit before they go back to the office, rather than working remote?

Why should they? Good ole Uncle Joe will keep paying them.....with OUR money!

I was in my office and just happened to have a small B/W TV in my office turned on. They came on the air with reports about the first plane. At that point, I went next door to another office that had a bigger TV and watch it as the 2nd plane hit the tower. I turned to the guy beside me and, like a lot of you, said "We are at war".

I am so ashamed of this country for forgetting what happened that day and now, after 20 years, allowing them to basically win.

Good point to put it into context .

It was eligible workers, New claims are rare .
Actually the best thing happening here right now is all the seasonal stuff shutting down so the year round business's can scoff up their employees .
I'm the NRA, and I ain't giving up squat.

I was in Baton Rouge at a hearing.  I remember the wife calling and saying something about a plane hitting the towers then some of the guys wheeled in a TV just in time to see the 2nd tower get hit.  I immediately called my wife and told her to stock up and hunker down.  There were scenarios of the fuzzy muzzies having developed a strain of ebola and them flying around on planes sick to spread it.  I had just been in 3-4 airports the day before the towers got taken out. 

I remember how quiet it was during the day without the jets flying around.  There is a constant din of noise from those things during the day even in remote areas.

I also remember Bush inviting muzzies to the national day of prayer he had a few days later.  At that point I figured that the populace just didn't get it by including the muzzies...and I was right.

Oh NOOOO. We mustn't offend our dear allies the muzzies! And just where has that gotten us? In the long run, the "muzzies" won. The nation, as we knew it, is LONG GONE.

Now, with the current Administration, it is the worst I have ever seen it. >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I remember  that day all to well.  That and the next year in the coast guard were both eye opening and terrifying.
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.
