From the article linked:

"It doesn't tell us whether people are finding jobs or just totally dropping out of the workforce."


Or just leaving that low wage shithole of a state.

You dumb ass. Once the long-term unemployed stopped getting unemployment, they were removed from being counted among the unemployed. Unemployment rates only count people receding unemployment insurance. The real statistic would be who actually has a job. The GOP counts on stupid people like you to look at graph and have no understanding of what it means. It's like closing the soup kitchen and then claiming the number of hungry people has declined.

You didn't post the whole thing...

"But even if this is mostly a function of people dropping out of the labor force, the actual unemployment rate does still matter for Fed policy. So if you think this has any predictive value for the national number (which could be debated) ths number still matters."

Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.
