"unemployment is two to three times the Bureau of Labor’s bullsh… I mean statistics."
The government and mainstream media are lying about unemployment rates.

Ask me a question.

Bear that in mind next time you tell some poor prick trying to find a job to "Get off their ass". (I've seen several of you people say that on this forum. Not very nice of you).

(Many are trying, but when 100 people apply for a job, guess what).

Info:

The U-3 is the number they spout off about every month. It's 7.5%.

The U-6 is the number they keep track of, but which rarely gets reported, includes 'short-term' discouraged workers and people working two or three (or more) part time jobs to make ends meet. It's ~14%.

The real unemployment rate includes long-term discouraged workers, all those people who haven't been able to find work for so long that they're dropped off the unemployment rolls and therefore no longer exist (according to our government).

That one is somewhere north of 23%.

They count all those people having to work two or three part time jobs as employed in the U-3, and technically they are, I suppose, but I believe they also count each one of those part-time, shitty paying jobs as an individual 'added' job when they calculate the U-3, even if one person is holding three of them to make up for the one job they lost.

Obviously, that helps make the U-3 (which is the only one they talk about) look better, even as more and more people who can't find even a part-time job drop out of official existence.

The machinations they use to come up with the U-1/2/3/4/5/6 numbers are inexplicable and incomprehensible.

Unemployment rate during the Great Depression, at its highest, was 24.9%.

Current real unemployment rate is undoubtedly 20%+.

Yes, we're in a recovery!!! GREEN DOWs for everyone!!! Wooohooo!!!

It's much worse than that. Only 70 million people in the USA work. That's out of 330 Million.

Of the 70 million who are gainfully employed, 20+ Million work for the Federal, State, or Municipal governments. AND they are unionized with big ass benefits and hugh contacts that pay far beyond their initial earnings.

Now add 33 illegal aliens and all the assholes in Puerto Rico + the other US territories who receive but don't pay into welfare....and you have a fiscal fuster cluck.

So technically 1 on 5 people in the USA work.

How they come up with 8% unemployment is the same way they come up with Federal Reserve Notes. They counterfeit reality for the sheeple while they gradually place a lock on the world's resources and chains on the sheeple.
