Does anybody really believe the unemployment rate is 5.8%?
I don’t! When you un-cook the books and add in the people that have
left the workforce i.e. given up looking it’s more like 10-12%. Then there’s
the people that ran out of unemployment and managed to get transferred
over to permanent disability. They will never re-enter the workforce.
Why would they?
