It is incredibly difficult to get disability payments. SSDI has a virtual Berlin wall of denial. I was fortunate to find an attorney specializing in this matter.

I'm a self admitted idiot when it comes to calculating true unemployment rates but even I can see the craven manipulation practiced by the current administration. Question.

I’m often reluctant to piggy back on a contributor’s work, but when something is really newsworthy, I think it’s justified.

In the last year, the civilian population rose by 3,638,000. Yet the labor force only rose by 945,000. Those not in the labor force rose by 2,693,000.

In the last month, actual employment fell by 169,000, but...
