After recording an adjusted unemployment rate of 7.4% in October, the November unemployment rate soared a whopping .9% in one month to 8.3%, the most since the Great financial crisis itself. And furthermore, at 8.3%, the unemployment rate is now the highest since May.

We all knew those unemployment rates were faked. Anyone who lives here down in the trenches knows that those rates weren't true. I personally think the unemployment rate is closer to 15%, when you count in those who have stopped looking for work.
If you count in the under-employed (people who have taken a part-time job or a poorly-paying job when they are qualified for much better) the rate soars to 25% at least.
And after the fiscal cliff?
We'll see a depression worse than the 30's.

"If voting made a difference they wouldn't let us do it." quote Mark Twain
The guy who holds the money runs the show. The US has been involved in world money markets since switching to the Federal Reserve bank system. One world banking system is another word for one world government, we are all pawns, including the President. Hang onto your hats, be thankful for food and shelter, and keep the faith cause you're gonna need it.

Unemployment rate means nothing- they can fudge that anyway they want. Watch the real numbers

When you have:

Record Black Unemployment
Record Female Unemployment
Record Teen Unemployment
Record Total unemployed
Record Total on Food Stamps.

That's when you know we are being led by failure. Great eh?

Who cares. I have a job. Always have, always will. I don't participate in recessions. I'm surprised so many of you do.

I was just thinking why do my neighbors, friends, family members, etc, all have jobs then? Another thought, why did the Kongsberg crowd all find jobs as soon as unemployment ran out?

Actually no.. We have major American businesses looking to make substantial purchases with ill regard to the media hype of the fiscal cliff. This is not an indicator of a slowing economy. I'm making the same hourly as I was in 1991 roughly and don't have any complaints about my income. I have no debt so I could give a rats A$$ about the fiscal cliff. If you work for a government agency then you may have some serious concerns about going over the fiscal cliff. If you don't then its no major concern. Our government is in every bankrupt with every dollar they borrow.

Go to bls.gov and then click on the entire report. It's 39 pages long. Pay attention to chart A-8. That's where you'll find the numbers that show that the unemployment rate is dropping due to the increase in part-time employment. As far as high unemployment rates, veterans from the Gulf War II era lead with somethng like 18%.(It doesn't break this number down by race.)

What? You are making the same as you did 20 years ago and you don't see a problem with that? Do you pay the same for a gallon of gas or a gallon of milk or a pair of shoes as in 1991?
I don't have any debt either and I don't work for a government agency but the fiscal cliff is predicted to put unemployment back to an "official" number of close to 10%.
The new recession it's predicted to cause will last at least a year, maybe longer.
Please look at the big picture and think about someone other than yourself.

Washington, DC –(12/7/12)– Generation Opportunity a national, non-partisan organization advocating for Millennials ages 18-29, is announcing its Millennial Jobs Report for November 2012. The data is non-seasonally adjusted (NSA) and is specific to 18-29 year olds:

The overall unemployment rate for 18-29 year olds for November 2012 is 10.9 percent (NSA).

The unemployment rate for 18-29 year old African-Americans for November 2012 is 18.5 percent (NSA); the unemployment rate for 18-29 year old Hispanics for November 2012 is 12.5 percent (NSA); and the unemployment rate for 18–29 year old women for November 2012 is 10.5 percent (NSA).

The declining labor force participation rate has created an additional 1.7 million young adults that are not counted as “unemployed” by the U.S. Department of Labor because they are not in the labor force, meaning that those young people have given up looking for work due to the lack of jobs.

If the labor force participation rate were factored into the 18-29 unemployment calculations, the actual Millennial unemployment rate would rise to 16.4 percent (NSA).

If the unemployment rate was calculated the same way as it was in the 1930's, it would show it at over 20%, and higher than any time of the great depression.

could you show some reliable sources to prove your theory? I mean where did you get information on how they calculated unemployment in the 1930's?

Some of you just run on and on and on with your complaints and manufactured drivel over the current administration, yet the only answer any of you have is lets go back to the same policies that got us here, instead of supporting any compromises. Stop being whiny babies, and maybe we'll get back to a surplus in the budget like the Clinton years that idiot Bush squandered and you all sat silent then.
