The US population is 325.7 million. What statistic are the other 70 million people counted in? I used and Our World In Data

That's because the real rate is approximately 21 percent.

Unemployment should be less than 1%, and as much as she might want to say that her "solution" wouldn't be able to achieve that.

The US also regularly fudges unemployment numbers by excluding long-term unemployed and including low hour employment.

Cher ... while the metric is polluted, it is polluted in the same way over time. That allows us to conclude that the rate is better than it ever was under MrO.

It could also mean that the grey areas of said "polluted metrics" have simply expanded. Which they have.

It has little to do with the presidents. Obama nor Trump explicitly hand jobs over to people - it's the system by which we organize our labor force. Exactly why I said even Pelosi's "solution" wouldn't be able to reduce real unemployment to below 1%.

She won’t be happy until every black and every woman is out of a job, so they can suckle from the teat of the government in a lifetime of addiction.

If obama had done it, she would think it was the greatest thing.
