Economic Education

So they say the Unemployment rate is way down (below 8%)

But then explain this:

If people are getting GOOD JOBS that are equal to those before Obama took office and the housing market crashed ...

Then why has the number of people on FOOD STAMPS (by any other name) has <b> <u>RISEN </u> </b> ?????

Because fewer people are still IN the work force .... DUH!!

Unemployment is down ONLY because there are fewer people looking for work these days (and they've played with the numbers)

I heard one estimate of "true unemployment" is around 20% ... But then the number of people collecting SSI for Disability has risen greatly too ... I'll keep an eye out for those numbers as well
