Zero Hedge: “Number of people not in the labor force is now at an all time high.”



As candidates use charts and numbers to prove their points about unemployment during the election season, some observers are noting that many may look upside down compared to those using some more logical numbers.

“If you’re looking strictly at a chart of the “official” unemployment rate,” ZeroHedge.com says, “you should flip it upside down – that would give you a better idea of how things really are out there.”

ZH notes that, “The number of people not in the labor force is now at an all time high, as nearly 88 million people are not participating,” and suggests that in actuality, only 64% of Americans have a job, “in any capacity.”
