Question by Sammy: How many people are unemployed but not counted?
How many people are unemployed but do not fit the standards the government statistics base their numbers on. I know many people who are unemployed, but aren’t counted because they don’t qualify for unemployment insurance. Are you? Note: When I say unemployed, I mean actively searching for a job.
The government percentages are based on people with unemployment claims. There are many people looking for jobs that don’t qualify. We shouldn’t count them out.
Answer by charoo
I don’t know the number, but its anybody who isn’t looking for a job: discouraged workers, children, stay at home parents, etc.
The work force is those who have jobs, or don’t and are looking (or have been in the last month, I think it is).
