Once a US citizen is no longer receiving unemployment benefits they are no longer considered part of the work force and as such, are not included in the unemployment statistics. Clearly, this is not a rational way of thinking. Either you have a job and are working or you do not have a job and are unemployed.
So, as the "powers that be" become more nervous about this movement and start to manipulate these statistics by stating that unemployment is improving from 9.1% to 8.9% or use words like under-employed, do not be fooled.
Unemployment is in no way improving.
