Those who's benefits have run out and those who took far less paying jobs are no counted.
My question is about the underemplyed and those wanting full time work that are currently part-time.
In all my years of being an hourly worker and a salaried manager I have never been asked nor have any of my employees "Are you underemployed or do you want full time work?" Just how does the gov't come up with this figure.
I think most would say yes to both questions no matter what.

Underemployed is someone with a JD or MA that is applying for a job that requires a BA. Underemployed is someone that is trained and has worked as a drill press operator that is now sacking groceries. Underemployed is anyone that has had a job in their trained or educational field, lost that job, and has been forced to take a job that is not in their field for compensation less then what they've made in the past. It is very common during this economic times and I think a very valid statistic.

By the same token, those overemployeed are those that were working, got laid off, are drawing unemployment and refuse to even look for a job as long as the government will send them a check.

<quoted text>OK you got me I am not a liberal like you.Liberals blame and trash induviduals they oppose or fear in your case.One example of how they hold themselves to a different standard is the underwear bomber,you blame the system,not BIG SIS when you know she is to blame.I know its true had a republican been in office you would demand a pound of flesh.But because it is a wanna-be Chavez in office you blame the system.Oh yeah, Janet said the system worked.And your leader has out spent Bush by almost three times and nothing to show for it.So face it your arguement is worthless just like your don't speak out against me cause my skin is to thin or I'll shut you up wanna-be.
It would have been easy enough to blame bush instead of the system. Obama did not make any big changes to the way we treat flights after he came in. bush had the shoe bomber and failed to fix things properly. See? Now we have the underwear bomber. The obvious thing is just to make everyone fly naked.

Honestly, all the flight stuff does is give you the warm fuzzies. People, like the underwear bomber can get through an eventually be successful. In the meantime, all you bush supporters claim he kept us safe even as you complain about undocumented Mexicans coming across the border.
