If you are not working but collecting unemployment then you ARE counted as unemployed.
If you are not working but you have exhausted your unemployment benefits then you are NOT counted as unemployed.
If you are unemployed and you have given up looking for a job then you are NOT counted as unemployed.
If you are unemployed, exhausted you benefits but suddenly the Obama administration wants to take credit for an increase in jobs created but has to explain away the fact that the unemployment rate still went up then you ARE counted as unemployed again.
So if the unemployment rate goes higher, to 10% then the economy will REALLY be kicking in…..
just trying to get it straight.
