    I'm interested with both how many people are capable of working yet not, and how many people are looking for work and can't find it.
    They both seem like useful data to me.

    I'm not sure it's possible to objectively determine "capable of working".
    Generalized parameters could perhaps be used, such as "no known mental or physical ailments which prevent working". How you define that though...dunno.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You need to re-phrase your question. I will be happy to answer it once you have clarified your position.

    Or, you are welcome to cede the point and the argument if you can't.

    You seem to be missing the point about employment at will.

    To solve poverty, we should just print enough money to give everyone the average median income today, is that what you think?

    No, I understand it well...Do you?

    "At-will employment is a term used in U.S. labor law for contractual relationships in which an employee can be dismissed by an employer for any reason (that is, without having to establish "just cause" for termination), and without warning.[1] When an employee is acknowledged as being hired "at will", courts deny the employee any claim for loss resulting from the dismissal."

    I think I got it right the first time, and, those of the opposing view merely need better reading comprehension to prove they are serious.

    I believe our elected representatives to government should not have to be burdened with anything more complicated than a form of minimum wage that simply compensates labor for being unemployed, in any at-will employment jurisdiction.

    what does employment at will have to do with means?

    Begging the question is usually considered a fallacy.

    I think I got it right the first time, and, those of the opposing view merely need better reading comprehension to prove they are serious.
