US loses edge as employment powerhouse -

The US is losing its edge as an employment powerhouse, where most people have a job or are looking for one, after its labour participation rate fell behind the UKs
The diverging trends between the US and the UK come as central bankers in both countries try to understand the dynamics in their respective labour markets, a critical factor in how long they should keep interest rates at record lows.
The labour force participation rate the proportion of adults who are either working or looking for work started to decline in the US in 2000 and has plunged since 2008 from 66 to 63 per cent.
This really sucks, we have to change our policies.
