back in January of this year the NY Post reported that it
If you count these hopelessly unemployed, the real jobless rate is probably close to 22 percent. If these all weren't such important issues, this
would all be a big joke.
then in August last year on that guys breitbart site he showed the numbers atabout 16 % total.
And in feb of this year this was reported... I know it is a blog, but he has verified links and sources..
Take 10%, then double the number.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 14.8 million unemployed Americans. www.bls.gov...
(What's odd is, even though more people lost jobs, many "discouraged" people were dropped from the statistics, and the revised "official"
unemployment rate was lowered from 10.1% to 9.7% - - - Obama's number-crunching.)
The younger people who want to leave their parent's home and be on their own for the very first time must find it very difficult - - - because this
recession is the longest and deepest on record.
In the past 2 years the recession has cost Americans 8.1 million jobs - - - and the actual unemployment rate is at 17.3% (but only 10% are collecting
State or Federally Extended Unemployment benefits; 10% being the figure the government uses because it makes it sound less severe.)
the obama and his fake numbers are all starting to come to a head... and when it does all hell is gonna bust loose... guess I better get my popcorn
out because I cannot wait to see how this clown tries to spin the numbers (as usual)...
