If we counted "missing" workers in the unemployment rate, it would be 10%, says EPI.

The 7% makes absolutely no sense to me...
It just dropped to 6.7% ... according to the government.
Thanks for that.
Given the board of directors, the article is all the more interesting as they are painting quite a different picture from “the administration”.
I wonder what percentile have gone Galt?
Thanks for that.
Sadly, I know EPI all too well. I commend them for creating and publicizing this new metric. Unfortunately, EPI’s policy recommendations based upon it will be all-too-familiar leftist tripe.
Boehner, Ryan and the GOPee establishment will be working hard to replace all those “missing workers” soon.
August 2011 bozobama said ‘climbing steep road to recovery didn’t know it would be that steep’ his fixation on cars, ditches, bumps, riding in the back, reverse and forward should have included four wheel drive? Gee Haw come up mule.
so, all Obama needs is about 3 million more to drop out of the work force to have what’s considered “full employment” ?
That seems to be the case!
Or else everyone will have part-time jobs. Since the government counts part time jobs the same as full time jobs, if we share all the jobs well be at 100% employment!
