    I'll bet the true unemployment percentage is much greater than most people realize.

    I understand that unemployment percentages are calculated by using those that collect unemployment benefits, and the rest of them are not counted at all.

    With only ten options, I could not list them all. If your situation is "other," explain in your post.

    If you are unemployed, how long?



    I am retired.

    I don't have a job, I'm not looking for a job, and I don't want a job.

    Anything that I do, I do because I want to do it.

    Not because someone told me that if I don't get it done, I'll be looking for a job.

    That's the way that it is.

    BTW: The poll sucks. You left out a lot of possibilities.

    Re: Are you unemployed?

    Full employment, 50k or better.

    I WAS unemployed for 7 months, what, two years ago now? Had to start over, from a 9 dollar an part time job, to mid manager, then senior. Now I'm gunning for a district level job, but that might take some time.

    Not really what I want to do, working in retail is pretty hateful for numerous reasons.

    Re: Are you unemployed?

    I'm employed full-time, making around $60k/year. I came very, very close to being laid off in 2009, and my wife was laid off.

    Re: Are you unemployed?

    I make about 44k a year. Because of my lifestyle I think if I made over 50k a year I would LOSE MY MIND. I'm a democrat not sure this poll would correlate to any data out there and there are a lot of studies that say one way or the other. The most recent studies say that Republicans have fewer and fewer people that make 50k plus a year while Democrats overall will make more. Still, the independents are the top earners nowadays going by most data I've looked at.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Re: Are you unemployed?

    Part-time, I'm in college after all.

    $9.50 an hour at a call center on campus, the hours are good though I hate the job itself. Oh well, that's life.

    The poll is a joke since it ignores the one out of eight Americans that are retired.
