Even if that 6.7% was accurate, my rough maths still makes that around 20 Million people out of work.
Imagine what national projects could be built by 20 Million people...
Lots of things could be built but who wants to pay 15$ an hour for unskilled labor. Skilled labor pays at leas twice that and they still can't find
Age structure: 0-14 years: 20% (male 32,344,207/female 31,006,688)
15-24 years: 13.7% (male 22,082,128/female 21,157,025)
25-54 years: 40.2% (male 63,802,736/female 63,581,749)
55-64 years: 12.3% (male 18,699,338/female 20,097,791)
65 years and over: 13.9% (male 19,122,853/female 24,774,052) (2013 est.)
Looks like about 200 mill in the workforce age. From index mundi
