Very interesting breakdown of our working and non-working population. If you back out those under 16 and over 64 years old, you get 234 million working age Americans. According to the BLS, only 7 million of these people are unemployed, even though only 153 million are actually working.
Do you believe 10% of the working age population is really disabled and unable to work? What a crock of shit. Why are 46 million Americans between 16 and 64 not working? That’s 20% of the working age population. How can you not classify them as unemployed? Any critical thinking person knows the real unemployment rate isn’t 4%. It is north of 20%. But, let’s keep believing Trump, the government drones, and the corporate media. It makes us feel better. The American Dream – because you’d have to be asleep to believe it.
