Unemployed and Uncounted

The 9.8% unemployment rate in the United States may be closer to 20%, or 30 million Americans without a job. Those measured are those who had a job before, are actively looking for work and are immediately available for work. Despite Washington DC having a somewhat healthy economy, so many residents here are left behind without a job, an income or any hope that things will get better.

    This is a capitalism country. These people that cant find a job have the ability to start a company, or get educated for free, or work for a friend, or work for a job they are overqualified for but for less money. It is not the government’s responsibility to hold their hand and make sure they are ok. The government already provides all the tools they need. It’s up to these poor people to use them properly. If they don’t want to work hard. They will die.

    Not all black people are homeless people. Look at Usher, Lil wayne and the other niggies, they are loaded.
    My two cents for all you black stuffs is that either be a drug dealer or be a rapper.

    My two cents,

    Thanks for finally the honest truth of how bad it really is out there especially in Oregon. We are the 2nd highest unemployment rate in the US and the REAL rate here is at least 26% or more. Many people are not counted any more here like the homeless and the people not on the rolls any more. I have a 4 year college degree and 18 years of computer and call center experience and it means nothing. I can’t get ANY kind of a job. It has been almost 2 years now. Never have things been this bad.

    You should really do your homework and you’ll see how everything Obama has done has been harmful to the US. Obama inherited Bush’s mess, but Obama made it a whole lot worse. You don’t turn the economy around by bailing out anyone, especially the big banks and corporations like GM because now they know the government will come in and save them whenever they are in a financial mess and won’t be as concerned about taking losses.

    I don’t think that everything is Obama’s fault. It’s Mr.Bush that started this whole thing. Obama is trying to clean up the mess he was given. It takes time for the economy to turn around…

    That’s just stupid. What media is saying that minority groups are more likely to be unemployed than whites. If you click on any youtube story, you will see all faces of unemployment.

    The government has better things to spend money on than its people, like NASA, SETI, and new types of weapons that can kill off everyone on the planet, and bomber jets that crash in 3rd world countries

    Don’t offer any help to the fools who voted for Obama. Those that voted for him deserve what they get!

    We can’t allow local cities to make sanctuary cities policies, because they will bring our inner city turf wars to epic proportions by bringing in the drug cartel and Columbian gangs. (Mexican Gangs don’t recognize US borders established Treaty of Guadalupe) C SPAN “Black Republican Forum” Session 2 (begin at 11:30) Allen West stated part of Amnesty of 1986 was to secure our borders and enforcement our laws, but haven’t happened. (We’re still talking about new amnesty like DREAM Act.)

    2/2 In November 2010, 15.1 million were unemployed (9.8%). 154 million are able to work in workforce (15.1 million/9.8%). GOOGLE “illegal immigration counters”, There are 11,941,812 (or 11.9 million) skilled jobs provided to illegal immigrants. the 15.1 million unemployed could take the 11.9 million available jobs. The unemployment rate could be reduced to 2.1% {{15.1-11.9)/154}.

    1/2 Immigrationcounters com 97% illegal immigrants are from Mexico. Illegalimmigrationstatistics org $1117 – The average amount you and your family paid in taxes this year to support illegals. 51% – The percentage of Mexican immigrant households that use at least one major welfare program. 28% use more than one.

    You dont count the entire population for the unemployment rate. The 350 million you noted includes kids, babies and retied folks-people who are not part of the legitimte working population.

  24. kobedarott February 3, 2013 at 8:04 am #

    lol, there are 350 million people in America, 20% = 70 million unemployed not 30
