Real Unemployment at 19%



Friday‚Äôs disheartening jobs report doesn’t tell the whole story. The reality of just how disastrous the Obama economy truly is lies in the facts that are purposefully left out of the jobs report.

Consider the following 11 economic facts:

1. When you include the underutilized labor figure with the eight million Americans who have lost hope altogether and stopped looking for a job, real unemployment now stands at just under 19 percent.

2. If the labor force were the same as when President Obama took office in January 2009, the unemployment rate reported on Friday would be 11.2 percent.

3. A record 88,921,000 Americans are no longer in the labor force. To be included in that figure, an individual must be over 16 years of age, a civilian, not in a mental hospital or nursing home, and have stopped hunting for a job for at least four weeks.
