Thank you for being forthright regarding your background. However we don't agree exactily on U6 definition:
The "U-6" includes two groups of people that the "U-3" does not:
1. "Marginally attached workers" - people who are not actively looking for work, but who have indicated that they want a job and have looked for work (without success) sometime in the past 12 months. This class also includes "discouraged workers" who have completely given up on finding a job because they feel that they just won't find one.
