One does not need to be a rocket scientist to grasp the fudging the BLS has been doing every month for years now in order to bring the unemployment rate lower: the BLS constantly lowers the labor force participation rate as more and more people "drop out" of the labor force for one reason or another

But that's the definition of labor force participation rate. If they "drop out", they aren't part of the labor force, so they aren't unemployed.
