    I meant the unemployment rolls.

    That is what I meant by using only one official number that doesn't merely play shell games with Statism.

    So, if I understand what you're getting at here, you think that to solve poverty, we should just print enough money to give everyone the average median income today...are you for real?

    So instead of the official number of unemployed for March of 10,486,000, you'd prefer to just use the 3,201,504 collecting Unemployment Insurance. Way to lower the number of unemployed!

    There is only one official number, and it doesn't play she'll games. You clearly don't know the concepts.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    They are no longer looking for work if they aren't trying to get out of being poor on an at-will basis.

    Why do you think they're not? And what specific actions do you consider "trying to get out of being poor on an at-will basis?" That's a concept you invented, so I can't learn it unless you explain it.

    Since the definition of unemployed is looking for work, it seems strange to say they're not, especially those desperately looking because they aren't eligible for unemployment benefits.

    They need not look for work on unemployment in an at-will employment jurisdiction, in that case, and could be considered analogous to U6; but as a much more comprehensive metric that doesn't resort to polls or surveys or even gender studies.

    Since you only talk about "at-will employment jurisdictions," I'm curious as to how you think things should be different in not at will employment areas. But first…Name a state that is NOT an "at-will employment jurisdiction. No "it would be like," or "it would be where," etc. A specific state, or more than one.

    I'll give daniel this, he has usual opponents agreeing that he is off his rocker.
