Counting the Unemployed: 30,000,000 plus

I've spent a lot of time the last few weeks poring through the monthly employment statistics.

I've come up with a figure of 30,000,000 unemployed, about 20% of the "active and passive" work force.

I hope to get my info up here in the next day or two, so keep checking back.

Ah.. Thursday morning. Unemployment numbers. I always get excited on Thursday mornings.

Night all. See you tomorrow!

  1. I have not read all your stuff, but have you looked at njfac.org--the National Jobs for All Coalition which gives a simple alternative UE rate every month on its site? It is usually about twice the official rate.
