DISCOURAGING: Seems that almost ⅓ of the population has left the workforce

Adding a new category: DISCOURAGING!  Because a lot of the news is just that.


*** begin quote ***

There is a monthly government statistic called U-6 and another metric called Civilian Labor Force Participation Rate. These two stats, added to the official Unemployment rate, reveal another estimated 12 million unemployed or underemployed individuals over and above the official stats. Another important metric is people who could work but choose not to do so. Yes, the government keeps that number as well.

When you combine all these numbers, you approach 100 million people who don’t work for a variety of reasons. That number has risen by about 35 million in the last ten years.

How can the USA survive if there are no willing workers?
