Real unemployment is far higher and has been for some time.
The unemployment numbers do NOT reflect those that have dropped out of the work force and or are no longer looking for a job, factor those numbers in and real unemployment is around 15% or MORE
The truth is, if more people keep dropping out of the work force, the unemployment rate will drop to zero.
No one I have spoken to in the last three years calls this economy good.
Economists factoring in data instead of political garbage understand the USA is in recession territory or in a recession right now.
Enjoy it progressives, the economy is as good as it ever is going to be under Obama, before the end of his term will be known as the Herbert Hoover of democrats
