What is the true unemployment rate? Are the people who lost there jobs 2 years ago still counted? Is a kid who graduated a year ago and has a part time job or no job at all calculated into it? Is employment in America improving or are we just not counting everyone? What about the National Guard people serving overseas? Are the temporary workers for there jobs being calculated into the rate? I donât see improvement but the numbers say we are so can someone explain it to me.
