REAL unemployment numbers are somewhere around 12.8 % adjusted for the chronically under employed (those making well less than they have in the past) and its hovers around 17 %.
DO NOT buy what Washington spin masters and the in the pocket of the president media are telling you.
Look at the key indicators and sustained jobs not adjusted seasonal garbage they push of as being the real. We are in an employment recession even though there has been a slight economic uptick. Employers are waiting to see who wins the election to see if they will invest in the human capital aspect of the economy and to see if the financial folks will begin releasing money before they go hiring folks. The major problem for over 45 or so workers is going to be the flood of younger jobless entrants into the labor force that will work for much less so they can get out of their parents basement.
