General rule for government unemployment numbers: Multiply by 3.

"Eurozone unemployment hits record high of 33%"

Yes.. more believable. Just as the USA is at 8% it's really more like 24%

Canada is even worse, CBC and other Canadian news outlets have reported that one million young adults are out of work and not in school in either colleges or universities.

That is pretty much troubling.
