    The unemployment number doesn’t mean a thing anymore, if ever. It only counts those people collecting unemployment, if you run out and or aren’t eligible, you aren’t counted. The number is then compared against the “universe of jobs available”. They aren’t even counting the people who made Welfare a career choice.
    You want a real unemployment number, take the latest census data, compare that against those filing tax returns and minus out those collecting social security.
