33% Americans have voluntarily, indefinitely exited their job/career
10% American unemployment, rounded figure
43% or roughly HALF of AMERICAN Population is NOT WORKING nor gonna be employed anytime soon.
so what are they going to be doing instead... waiting for the WORLD TO END?
"America is Cooked" ... "We are Finished" ... "I love you guys!"
It is not having nothing to do that is the problem it is lack of money or reduced income which effects what you can do with your life that is the
problem. Plus I would also say loss of hope in the future. For many the American deal appears to be dead it has been bundled up and shipped
Wow never knew there was/is a 'nazi' organization down in Florida at this point due to the travyon (sp?) case. Though I can certainly and repeat
certainly not speak for all sometimes it's not that people can't find the work but often times pass over the work. Like over here we have a few job
openings all over some and while it may not be the ideal job that most people want I still find a job to be a job. Sometimes we sadly have to take
what we can get at first while making steps to move into a different job. Though like I said certainly not the case for all.

Apparently "out of work" he and also the article below are talking about the people - in addition to unemployed- who recently dropped out of workforce
and just don't wanna work, ie pretty much self-decidedly 'retired' at whatever their age, 60 or 20 it seems most nobody wants to work when they can
just live off available gov benefits (or criminal income?) apparently.
Most people have been spoiled, seasoned with the favorable experience of having been laid of and sliding right onto extended replacement income for
doing nothing at all, and they are used to it, the article touches upon that, even when some jobs return, people are still exiting and don't want to
WORK they want to spend the remainder of their time doing other things. Maybe they have also decided the END IS NEAR?
Hmmm.. 330 million population if we count those who didn't hide from the 2010 census. 80+ million out of work. Lets see... take off for the illegals,
children, incarcerated and physically incapable of work...and I'm thinking we're close enough to saying we're 1/3rd out of work in this nation to all
have a solid finger of fear run up our collective spines.
The Great Depression, by comparison, peaked from a run starting at 5% in 1929 to 25% in 1933. If this report is to be believed...we're beyond that
If that is true, we're in a world of hurt. I'm not sure how much I doubt it because what once were fairly empty streets during the working hours or a
weekday are now as packed at any given time as a nice Sunday in mid summer. I've wondered for awhile now just who IS out there working. Everyone is on
the street, out of work and driving!
Seriously... The only reason we aren't in riots now..IF this is true...is the benefits and handouts which are systemic now and didn't exist then. When
those run out...and c'mon, they can't grow exponentially forever...even the mint has printing limits...we're in for it. Greece?? LOL.... Greece is a
small nation and everyone pretty well agrees who to be mad at. The US is, again, 330 million who can't agree on the weather, let alone who to be
violent against when the cupboards are bare and the gas tank is dry as a bone.

1st off we need to cut wayyyyyyy back on our military spending. next we need to bring the jobs back to the u.s and we need to get back into farming!
if we get back into farming we can cut the price of our groceries. next we need to find and use more cheaper forms of energy. give tax incentives to
companies that open up and produce their goods in the u.s.. if obama were to release a ton of our oil to use domestically, i heard we have 100 years
worth of oil stored away? why not use a year or two of it at cost, our gas would be $1 a gallon or less, that would get this country back on its feet!
if people have jobs, they have money, if they have money, they will spend it if they spend it on american businesses it turns into a nice cycle
enjoyed by all! call it trickle up economics.
re "workforce" - i haven't used the word "workforce" but yeah article mentions labor force; maybe for a concrete (or semantic, lol) definition..
anyways and in any case/definition, this is a shocker to me on one hand, yet on the other hands, it's been obvious in the surfacing American behavior,
emerging attitude, and many figures have been emphasizing and warning it in most recent years:

I'm sure some people might be feeling "racial tension" or whatever, but imo it's very very few. 1/3 of the country has, according to the
government, "chosen not to work" .. only 8% are "really unemployed" .. I would like to believe anyways that the majority of people, like myself,
are more angry at the Federal Government than their neighbors.
Corrupt over sized government

That is a staggering number, i only knew of the official 8% to 9% they claim.
So the common man is unemployed and the elite who have jobs are running away from them :S
I smell S H T F.
indeed its shocking but then again in line with the tip of the iceberg we had been hearing months ago: "massive resignations" - ring a bell? surely
10,000 bankster arrests, and 20,000 bank employee resignations in one shot on Wall St. alone, can only be the tip of the iceberg as far as the
multiple career/labor areas across America.
in just a couple more months, high schoo, college & university grads alike will flood the job seeker market, too.
perhaps nowadays even 1/3 or 1/2 of recent college grads are disillusion and don't want to bother with a job nor building a career anymore, either?
"DOUBLE the unemployment rate for recent college grads, than rest of the population
+ DOUBLE the average student tuition, loan debt in recent years - "mountains of debt"
+ DOUBLE the interest rate on loans!
= DOUBLE DISASTER!
furthermore, Americans are increasingly carrying unpaid debt + acruuing interest for years, decades after graduation
I note for the abuse I'm sure to get for it that raising Min. Wage just adds another element to the perfect storm we see on the horizon. Forget the
20 somethings starting out, let alone anyone older with a family to support. You mention the high school and college kids.. Oh dear.. yes.. What about
If you manage Burger King and you have an applicant there in their late 20's, solid work history...good clean application and sharp appearance next
to a 17 or 18 year old that is equally sharp, well written on the application and well spoken, who to hire? Well... When labor COULD be hired among
teenagers at a deal, the teen of course. They're trainable and don't get too atatched to a place. No life experience is a GOOD thing in that
But wait....all things aren't equal...and you legally must pay the kid living with Mommy and Daddy and no bills the same dollar for dollar wages the
Government determined are min. required to try and support a house, family and life full of bills.
I'm real glad I grew up before Kids were considered worthy of a grown man's wages under the law. I COULD get hired as a teenager back then. I'm
reading it's not so easy anymore... Gee... given the above scenario, I wonder why that would be? Unintended Consquences can hurt. Ask a High Schooler
or 19/20yr old College Student this summer.
indeed for such reasons u pointed out, disillusioned, milked, misled recent college grads have been piling up- unemployed- and desperate, depressed,
angry etc for over the past decade, roughly since 9/11 sharade and its destruction of the American dream
Flash forward a decade to present - we are well into a virtually total collapse of America any day now. From the 80million steep slope its likely that
80 million will DOUBLE within a decade or heck even hit virtually 100% Americans within as little a year or two - anything and everything's possible
in that direction given the straight up steepness of that employment abandonment reality of Americans at large today.
So, who is going to own all of America's 150 MILLION HOMES? Every year in recent times, at least 10 MILLION homes are foreclosed on and lost. America
is quickly growing into shantytowns, slums with likely a crackhouse on most every block. Americans are turning to recreational drugs and other vices
in lieu of 9 to 5 and bringing home any legal bacon. Water, electric, internet, cellphones, etc all utilities shut off, all personal savings & assets
seized and rounded up like sardines by the millions into into unhygienic FEMA camps basically outdoor cages and left virtually naked to fight, be
humiliated, raped, murdered, labored, spread disease, starve, DIE and then be buried in mass coffins/graves.. Crime, pandemonium, curfew, police,
military, DOHS & FEMA lockdown will have prior to that skyrocket (current state?) and quality of life will be HELL on Earth or at least in America and
we would suffer a slow miserable life of pain suffering hunger & disease deep downward spiral until death.
I almost forgot illegal immigration, which by very definition will be not eligible to work and so a pure strain on public resources, that will soon
add an EXTRA 80 million living in America yet aren't working and so assuming we're looking at like roughly 3/4 of people living in America NOT
working, within a decade or two:
our government? we are a burden on their shoulder, a debt. the only thing USPTB are concerned about are military expansion, control... WAR
