99ers have a difficult week as H.R. 589 fails to move forward. Underemployment at 19.8%

Post by Guest on Tue Mar 01, 2011 10:19 am

The real unemployment rate

Even as Congress bickers about budget cuts, unemployment is not improving as would be expected during a “recovery”. The BLS releases their monthly, seasonally adjusted employment report, which currently shows unemployment at 9%. Gallup, on the other hand, does not use seasonally adjusted numbers and their latest report shows unemployment at 10% and underemployment at a whopping 19.6%!

In this article, see the link to track job creation and where the jobs are:

Share your experience:


I’m looking for stories from people who have been rejected during the hiring process for being unemployed. Have you been the victim of a temp agency that won’t give you an interview because you are unemployed? Have you seen jobs ads for “employed only” or “unemployed need not apply”? Have you lost a chance at a job due to a poor credit score? Send your job rejection experiences to mike@layofflist.org.

Get involved, folks!
Make your voices heard through the media also!
Get the unemployment crisis out in the open!

Speak out to our legislators and the media! Spread the word today!

Today, it is has been a whole year without any help or Unemployment Insurance, where the economy has no long term jobs.

Happy Anniversary 99ers!

nuttin2close,

It will be your first anniversary not being counted for a whole year. Mine is actually in the middle of the month.

How can we celebrate? Take a trip to Washing DC. Go to Madison, Wisconsin? There are more choices this year with the rallies for Union busting. Anyone into riding the rails that the Hobo did in the Great Depression?

The unemployment rate NEVER includes the exhaustees - once we have exhausted our UI benefits, we're considered employed. Isn't that special? Now do you see why the unemployment rate has gradually been going down ---- as more and more people become 99ers? I'm not sure that the bozos in Congress even understand or know how these figures are compiled. What's worse, the employment statistics come from "polling" groups of people - that's reliable. Considering this, can you imagine how bad the situation really is?

Yes but I thought that the BLS had agreed to start including us in this months report. Could be wrong though.

I don't think they're reporting the actual numbers. The BOL has never released the true numbers because of fears it could trigger an economic collapse.

Wall Street would definitely become impacted.

They were supposed to have a new way of counting 99ers, but unfortunately I dont think they will ever release the true numbers.

99ers are counted in some ways of figuring and not in others, there is no real way of counting how many there are.
