The government’s most widely publicized unemployment rate measures only those who are out of a job and currently looking for work. It does not count discouraged potential employees who have quit looking, nor those who are underemployed — wanting to work full-time but forced to work part-time.  For that count, the government releases a separate number called the ‘U-6,’ which provides a more complete tally of how many people really are out of work.  The numbers in some cases are startling.

[ASND simply asks, “America’s  longest 8+%  “official” unemployment rate ever isn’t “startling” enough?]
