U.S. Real Unemployment is 42%!
There are 242 million working age Americans. Only 142 million Americans are working.

That means 100 million working age Americans (41.5%) are not working.

You want a scarier version, nearly 1/3 of those are government employees or contracted through the government.

Re: U.S. Real Unemployment is 42%!
Better yet, another way to look at it would be,
around 20 of the 50 states completely unemployed.

Imagine if you filled all those people into separate states, and drove your car though 20 states, and couldn't find a single person working.

It would be like the jobless version of one of those shows where civilization disappears, only the jobs would have disappeared.

Your numbers include those of working age, what about all those who are expecting social security now.

aaaahhhh!!!

people are on food stamps is a testament to the BLS lie. A look at history proves how badly the current figures reek to high heaven:

2000 to 2011 - Not in Labor Force increased by 17.9 million.
1990?s – Not in Labor Force increased by 5 million.
1980?s – Not in Labor Force increased by 1.7 million.

The Not in the Labor Force category is utilized to hide how bad the employment situation in this country really is. They conclude that 17 million out of 38 million Americans between the ages of 16 and 24 are not in the labor force. That is complete bullshit. From the time I turned 16, I worked. Everyone I knew worked. I worked through high school and college. It is a lie that 45% of these people don’t want a job. If you dig into their data, you realize the horrific state of employment in this country:

74% of 16 to 19 year olds are not employed
85% of black 16 to 19 year olds are not employed
31% of black 25 to 54 year old men are not employed
40% of 20 to 24 year olds are not employed
22% of 25 to 29 year old males are not employed
22% of 50 to 54 year old males are not employed
According to the BLS, 11% of men between 25 and 54 are not in the labor force

Re: U.S. Real Unemployment is 42%!
You do understand that unemployment means "currently looking for work, but cannot find it, after having lost a job".

Many people are not looking for jobs. Things you need to consider


Stay-at-home moms
College Students
People who work under table


I know quite a few of each group, and they usually need someone who works full-time to support them, but still trying to count them as unemployed?

Yeah, but if you fired the government employees - the crisis would actually get worse, because it would take a shit ton of consumers out of the loop.

The same goes for military sector jobs.

Unfunded liabilities now $238 TRILLION [link to www.silverdoctors.com] Do some math on that one.

$238 TRILLION unfunded liabilities
$16 trillion official debt


So each one of those working, because the unemployed cannot pay anything owe 254 trillion dollars

$1,788,732.00 per working citizen!

So every working american owes around 2 million dollars for their share of the debt. The kid and McDonalds, the guy at the parts store, the guy washing windows, driving taxi, etc. etc. etc.

In 1912 there was No Federal Income Tax, State Income Tax, No National Debt, and No Federal Reserve bank. Now we are taxed slaves, we've created a society that is unsustainable period. It's going to be painful eventually no matter what.

Fine keep it all going, and watch the people starve anyway, watch as their money buys nothing.

This is understandable when you see that we have 315 million people, one third of all manufacturing was sent overseas in one decade, 10+ million illegal immigrants are here to be exploited by corporations, and countless more jobs are automated. What did you think would happen? Unemployment, naturally.

In Germany only (app.) 48% of the population are working. That's "normal". A large number of immigrants in our country have never worked in their lifetime, most live off social welfare. The price you pay for being a "rich" export oriented country.
