19. unemployment is not coming down, it's acceleration is slowing
So instead of 600,000 new applicants/month, there's maybe $500,000. And that's probably because of seasonal jobs. And long-term unemployment -- the real numbers that includes those who fall off the rolls, those who return to school because there are no jobs...continues to rise.
