The level of underemployed workers looks bad on its face but even worse when it's not the government doing the counting.

When the Labor Department released its monthly non-farm jobs report Friday, it was all sunshine and roses except for one glaring weakness: A big jump in the unemployment rate that includes those who have quit working as well as those who have had to take part-time jobs even though they'd rather work full time.

That rate, which economists call the U-6, jumped from 13.8% in May to 14.3% in June—a 3.6% increase and indicative that the 195,000 new jobs created in the month weren't exactly of the highest caliber.

But what often doesn't get as much attention is the monthly labor count that the experts at Gallup conduct.

According to the pollster's results, the underemployment situation is even worse.

Gallup reports that 17.2% of the workforce is underemployed, a startling number compounded by its divergence from the government's count. While the rate is down from the 20.3% peak in March 2010, it has remained maddeningly high over the past three years even as economists tout the strength of the U.S. economic recovery.

From a broader perspective, the Gallup measure actually has increased from its 15.9% multi-year low in October 2012.

Yep, Mr. President, you do pay your bills or you are a deadbeat but first and foremost you should live within your budget and not buy what you know will put you in the position to be a deadbeat. You have spent and are spending money, borrowed money even, to do that. Do you know what a budget really is? Talk about a bully, WOW. There you have it, our president at his best. Unbelievable.

Reid Supporter Whittemore Gets 2 Years in Campaign Cash Case

RENO (AP)— Ex-Nevada power broker Harvey Whittemore admitted he was "arrogant and naive" but insisted "I'm not greedy" before a judge sentenced him Monday to two years in prison for funneling more than $130,000 in illegal campaign funds to Sen. Harry Reid's re-election committee in 2007.

U.S. District Court Judge Larry Hicks also ordered Whittemore to pay $100,000 in fines for his three felony convictions and serve 100 hours community service upon his release from a yet-to-be determined prison that houses white-collar criminals.

The 61-year-old former lobbyist and wealthy developer is to surrender on his own to federal authorities on Jan. 31, 2014.

"These offenses go to the very heart of our electoral process," Hicks said.

I see not one republican will say a word about AHCA only involved the 15% of the poorest Americans, yet republicans always vote against minimum wage increased for those 15%.
Why doesn't this state out to any of you moronic republicans as bullshit??
Why are you all so ignorant?
Pro-business groups in Washington state say the $9-an-hour wage may prove to be a "tipping point," a kind of sticker shock that could discourage employers from hiring more people. There's even a theory that the state minimum wage — which is counted separately from tips — might explain the understaffing and lousy service at some Seattle restaurants. It's Economy 101: The more you raise the price of something — employment, in this case — the less of it there'll be.
"I don't think there's any sensible economist who thinks you could double the minimum wage and not throw a lot of people out of work," says David Neumark, director of the Center for Economics and Public Policy at University of California, Irvine. There is a debate, he says, over the effect of incremental raises for the small group of largely unskilled workers who earn the minimum wage.
"The consensus from a lot of studies I've surveyed — including my own — says that a 10 percent increase in the minimum reduces employment of those very low-skilled groups by about 1 to 2 percent," he says.
Keep in mind, that's 1 to 2 percent of the people earning minimum wage, and they make up only about 5 percent of the workforce nationally. So the job losses are pretty tiny.
Defenders of the minimum wage say it's even less than that, pointing to a couple of recent studies that show zero net job loss. David Cooper, an analyst with the pro-labor Economic Policy Institute, says the minimum wage is especially necessary now.
"When you have lines of the unemployed around the corner looking for jobs, there's no real pressure for employers to raise wages," Cooper says.
And in this age of Occupy Wall Street, Cooper says, pushing up that wage floor is one way to address growing income inequality.
"Increases in the minimum wage are essentially a shift from corporate profits to low-wage employees," he says. "And we know that low-wage employees spend more of their money. They're going to spend essentially every penny they get, so that increased demand is going to result in more economic activity and potentially more jobs."
Still, economists on both sides tend to agree that the minimum wage itself isn't that big of a factor for America's working poor. For one thing, many of the people earning the minimum aren't poor at all; they're teenagers or middle-class part-timers looking for extra income.
The working poor tend to earn more — because they have to if they're supporting a family. For them, the benefit of recent minimum-wage hikes has been relatively small, especially when compared with other anti-poverty programs such as the federal Earned Income Tax Credit.

No, I don't clog my brain with BS. Pew isn't a reputable polling. Everyone knows the Pew and Rasmussen aren't credible.

And it seems that anyone who uses them are ignorant and won't listen to anything reasonable.

Go back and look at Pew and Rasmussen polls concerning the last presidential election then let us all know how wrong they were.

If you don't know how to research that, get back with me, I'll train you. You'll be amazed at how much you can learn. Ask the crackhead about jobs outsourcing I prover her to be an idiot on and it came from GOP.gov . She has hidden from that ever since I made her look like the dumb jackass she is.

Doesn't matter where it comes from... NPR or Fox.... Use some common sense... The owners of Walmart, GE, McDonalds, Exxon, all are laughing their way to the bank. Both union and non union.

This is your story! If I were broke and working part time at McDonalds, I would not be complaining about the debt and rising debt because of Obamacare. I would be all for it just like you are.

Nah, I'm not ignorant at all.... I'm wondering why republicans shut down the government over 15% of our citizens being able to buy healthcare insurance.

You're the idiot who brought up how our country would crumble if minimum wage was raised.

I guess it doesn't hold true since the stock market was setting records (until republicans shut down our government) and since our country has produced a HUGE number of millionaires since Obama took office. Go look it up.... Prove me wrong.... If you can.

That being said... How can our country implode if the rich don't get 'more rich'?

Your logic doesn't hold water. Sorry bout your luck.

AND..... If you low wage earners made a bit more money, the economy WOUOD rebound faster. There's no way anyone can say that's not a fact. To me it's a better deal to have low wage earners making a few more bucks, spending money and a bigger tax base than to have a few more millionaires NOT paying taxes and not buying TVs, Cars, Stoves, the regular things. It's just common sense.

Anything else?? Try to explain to everyone how making sure 15% of Americans getting Affordable Heathcare made the republicans shut down our government. And don't say it's because healthcare has become more expensive. The last 3 years, prices have DEcreased.

You can start your spinning now because those are the facts. Plain and simple.
