As one of my old statistics professors remarked to those of us in his class: Figures don’t lie, but liars can figure.
I was thinking about all these people “leaving the workforce.” Where did they all go? And...how are they surviving?
How many on welfare?
How many gone Galt?
How are daycares faring, I wonder? Are those who drop out of the work force becoming at-home parents again and cutting the daycare? Just curious. A couple daycares have closed in our area, and I’m wondering if that isn’t the case.
I was laid off last month. I am not collecting unemployment so am not counted, but I am not in the labor force right now. I imagine there are many more like me out there.
