I think that 10.5% is a realistic overall number but regionally it's worse and in predominantly black neighborhoods it's higher (discounting the whores, pimps and drug dealers who are technically unemployed but they're entrepreneurs.
The Dems can't keep denying reality forever, even Democrat voters are getting wise to it.
That's the BLS U6 and that's a crock, too.Try over 20 at least, with a worst-case of 37%.
It is certainly 20%+ if you consider all the workers who have given up even looking.
Exactly.If you wonder where the 37 comes from, we have a workforce of about 250 mil out of a population of 310 mil and we know 93 mil are currently out of that workforce that should be in it.93/250 is about .37FWIW 93/310 = .3
