BLS Unemployment Statistics

Lowering the unemployment rate is not the same thing as raising the employment rate.

It does not take into account:
1. People whose unemployment benefits ran out and stopped looking for work are removed from the unemployment.
2. People who are working part-time, but aren't really making a livable wage.
