""In 1994, the government changed the way that it calculates the unemployment rate by officially eliminating “long term discouraged workers” from the equation. This means that people who are unemployed for twenty-seven weeks or longer are no longer counted as unemployed – they simply do not exist at all. There are currently over 5.5 million people who are not a part of official government statistics ""

but then i really haven't believed government sources for much of anything since i was about 20yrs old.....and THAT is a real shame in and of itself...

It's about manipulating the numbers so
the politicians don't look like jack a**es. I find it amazing that the republicans are not using this point during the rep debates. Why don't they mention the real numbers? Seems like a perfect time to rub Obamas face in it. I think they are mesmerized by Mittens and Mewt. That sounds like a book or movie name "Mittens & Mewt"
Very Happy

Guess there isn't enough money to line their pockets in it so why bother...
