Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Now, the number of unemployed has gone down under Obama, though still about 2 million higher than pre-recession.
You could mean what are called "Discouraged Workers," you could mean all marginally attached, you might be misunderstanding what "not in the labor force" means and think everyone in that category has "given up" or "faded from the labor force." I can't know what you mean until you define your terms.
And then you'd have to establish why those numbers should make any difference to the unemployment data.
Lie in quotations? Do you mean the numbers are known to be something else and are deliberately changed? Or, what I believe more likely, do you think the internationally accepted definition that's been used in the U.S. for over 70 years (with some minor changes) is wrong. And if that's the case, what definition do you propose?the unemployment numbers you are pushing are a "lie".
92.7% of them say they don't want a job. Of those who say they do, 3.8 million haven't looked for work in over a year. Is that a reliable indicator of the current labor market? And how likely are those people to start looking for work? A further 700,000 who say they want a job have looked for work in the last year, but are not available for work.Over 90 million are out of the work force.
So what significance are you attaching to the 90 million not working or looking for work?
2.6 million people in July wanted full time (35+ hours) but worked part time because they couldn't find full time work. 4.7 million wanted to work part time but had hours cut due to business conditions. How many of those were because of Obamacare?Millions have been forced into part time jobs because of obamacare.
You're making broad claims with ambiguous terms. Why is that?
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.
