When people are out of work, they have nothing but time on their hands. Even better yet are those individuals who are able to collect Unemployment benifits, which they have been paying to receive while formerly employed.
They can, if they're smart, buy ammunition and firearms with their unemployment checks.
The unemployed are, I am afraid, going to STAY UNEMPLOYED, unless they can get a government job or something in the Pharmaceuticals industry.

High unemployment means there are more people than jobs. This means that employers can offer lower wages and cut benefits and still be able to find labor. Because hey, people have to make rent. They have to eat.
It's the consumer / employee who picks up the real costs of the system.
