Ok so I am confused on this issue. Claims have been at around 400,000 per week forever, but each month an additional 18-175k are hired. How is the REAL unemployment at between 16-20%? Shouldn't it be at like 40%??? http://mollysmiddleamerica.blogspot.com/2011/10/number-of-jobs-lost-in-2011.html This doesn't make sense to me what she says in her blog.
