  1. The "official" stats say unemployment is 10% and the "unofficial" stats say it's closer to 15-20%.

    Please take a moment to think through your circle of family and friends and vote the % that best represents the amount that are unemployed.


    P.S.- Please share your vote and the city/state/ or region of the U.S. you live in.

    Thanks again.

    I am in the NYC area and voted 5% or less.

    Too funny,

    I guess since you don't know anyone out of work everything is just fine. I like this new idea of telling how well the economy is doing based on knowing how many people one knows is out of work. Now that is a great guide.

    Hey 1 in 5 people out of work in california, just heard this.

    Im not worried, this is all about to peak and as we all know all the stimulus is going to create massive amounts of jobs putting at least 10 million people back to work creating unemployment rates back below 5% over the next 2 years, equities are going to zoom higher.

  4. what about underemployed.
