    Smile is this right?

    Because of the recession, we're on course for/to have record unemployment levels.

    From the Cambridge Dictionaries online

    If record is a verb here, it should carry some sort of inflections like recorded?
    If record is a noun here, it doesn't quite make sense to me.

    Much obliged if you can shed some light here. thanks a lot

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
