Today's unemployment rate worse than that of the Great DepressionNovember 4, 2012

For instance the long term unemployed are not counted in today’s unemployment statistics. Once they are off of the unemployment benefit roles because their benefits have run out, they become non-humans as far as the statisticians in Washington are concerned.
