Why don't they try to "guesstimate" the true unemployment rate?
They're basing the percentage on the number of people drawing unemployment checks. What about the people that are out there working to find another job that ARE NOT getting those check.

If you're not getting a check, basically you don't count. It could be way higher than they think. What's the difference between a recession and a depression?

Is this a news story?...hasn't SE Oklahoma always been poverty row? Logging is about it, so when a "bubble" recession hits, naturally the poor suffer. Hey that's the USA!!!

Northwestern Oklahoma...has agriculture, oil production and those wonderful slaughter houses each killing 5,000 cattle per day...employing Mexicans legal and otherwise. Hey that's the USA!!!
