Stores better get use to lower than expected sales since the unemployment rate is so high this holiday season. The lines for people wanting aid this xmas season will be longer than ever before . All the charities that need donations will see less money too . People on unemployment will have to choose between paying the monthly bills or buying presents which they cant afford .Those people fortunate enough to have a job and are still working will spend less as well since the cost of food and gas has gone up as well and job security remains a issue for some who still might find themselves out of a job soon if the economy does not improve .
