15. Unemployment rate is actually 42%...

(according to Dottie during the campaign, but you don't hear that anymore from Dottie) (Dottie the Dotard)

And no, the unemployment rate isn't 42%, nor was it during the campaign -- I explain that in my post in that thread.

But remember when Dottie talked about 94 million jobless Americans (citing the NILF -- Not In The Labor Force numbers)?

Well it's now 95,915,000, which is up 170,000 in the past month and up 877,000 in the past 12 months, and up 1,551,000 since the inaugural month of January 2017 (when it was 94,364,000). Tell that to some fucking greed-banger rightie. (1.5 million more "jobless Americans" since Trump became president!!!!!!! Makes Hoover look Great Again!)

Not in Labor Force, Age 16+ https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS15000000

Not in Labor Force, say they want a job, Age 16+ https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS15026639

(The latter, at 5,183,000, is up 68,000 over the past month, but down 536,000 from the inaugural month of January 2017)
