    other sights, but check this out:

    None of those on Disability are being counted as unemployed.

    The real rate is probably over 20% (U6 isn't that far away without disability) and in some locations much worse.

    Everyone on some form of benefits is invisible -- both to the public at large and to government statistics.

    Pissing and moaning about the "deficit" in this situation is just stomach-turning, let alone criminally negligent  regarding what is being done to people.
