Unemployment Rate on the Decline?

Over the last 4 years, America has faced a cold recession, and along with it, an unemployment rate, described as Mortimer Zuckerman as “a jobs depression as great as the great depression.” In a separate piece, Zuckerman proposes that the only difference between the great depression and our current one is that we don’t notice those unemployed individuals as much because the government works hard to keep them out of soup kitchens. This article, titled Unemployment Rate Much Worse, William Douglas, the author of the article, states that although the government states that things are on the rise, they fail to take into account a few of the major factors. Some of these factors include leaving out the long-term unemployed, or those whose unemployment benefits have run out. Read the article here to understand more.
