103. I am not a part of the numbers
The govt, nor any polling of any kind, has any idea I'm unemployed. No one calls me to get my employment status. I am unemployed, and have been actively looking for work for the past 6 months. I was a contractor for 5 months this year and am ineligible for unemployment benefits. Even though I paid 46% taxes for the 5 months I worked this year I cannot collect unemployment, based on 1.5 years of contracting. Do you think I'm part of the unemployed reported in the article. Think again. I am sure there are many more like me, that go uncounted. Thus he real unemployment is predicted at 16-25%.
