Default What is the % of unemployment in your area?

We all hear what the national numbers are and most people feel that the published numbers are low.


In your state and city what do you think the percent of the work force is out of work?

Massachusetts is 9.2% according to today's Boston Globe.
Our "peak" was 9.5% a few months ago.
It's expected to stay around 9% until at least 2011.

Officially in 2009 it was over 9.5%.

I would not be wrong to say in Fremont County, Colo its probably double that now. Unemployment rate does not count people who drop off of the unemployment rolls.

North Dakota has 4.0%......hard to find workers up here with the booming oil economy on top of an already strong job market.

Nor does it count the people who are underemployed ie working part time to just pay the bills at mcdonald's.

Werd.

Also seasonal. The Royal Gorge has excellent whitewater in the spring and summer. It shuts down in the fall and winter.

If a Republican was in office you wouldn't here the end of it. With Obama in the press goes weeks at a time not even mentioning it. When they do, they try to make it sound cute, like having "top ten best ways to nail your interview!" With lines like "with a stubborn job market, we're all lookin' to stand out!" Tee hee!

The fact is there are a lot of pissed off people and they are tired of being ignored and tired of reading headlines about expensive state dinners and Oprah appearances. You talk to people and they feel like they're being ignored. We're wasting time and money passing health care legislation when people need work. The press want to prop their boy up, so they are pretending it's not there.

There's a storm coming and the Dems are going to take it up the ass this fall.

Ok First I would like to say I do not belong to any political party.

#1 Now that being said. This problem was caused by republican President. It's funny how Republicans seem to forget this. Obama got handed a big old pile of crap.

#2 Health care? Yep who really cares that 30 million people did have it right. I mean we don't need them anyways.

#3 I understand that Obama is not the perfect solution and he has not done everything I wanted. However at least he can say a complete sentence and at least has some concern for the well being of people.

11.5 for all of Ohio

For my local area it was 14% for 2009.

Local steel mill has been idle for over a year and effects felt across the surrounding areas.

Percentage of residents living in poverty in 2008 was 18%, so I'm sure that number has grown.

1. Obama voted for TARP when he was a senator, so he gets a nice big pile of share to go with Bush ("we have to abandon the free market to save it") & McCain. 'eff em all.

2. More people would have health insurance if they had jobs. Jobs should have been the priority, they tried and failed with the Stimulus, then dropped it completely.

first off i would like to say imnot even american

that being said blaming W for this misses the boat totally, this goes back farther then him, try looking at clinton for this mess, you wont know what kind of mess W left ya till after obama is gone.

unemployment in my area is listed at 9.6% i think, but as has been mentioned that dosent include, those who have run out of unemployment benis, those who have given up looking for work, those who are under employed, or those who are in school doing retraining.

Look I never said Obama is perfect. Yes he voted for tarp but that was after Bush had already sank the country.

There is a big difference between More People and 30 million People.

I wish people would realize that while the president can suggest economic policy, its congress that actually sets it. They set tax rates, they set spending, they are the ones that can dump money into the market to create new jobs or lower taxes to create new jobs. The president takes the hit because he is the president, but its nearly all congress. For the knock on Bush that the economy was horrible...it wasnt. It was not spectacular, but it was far from horrible. And the economy did not drop off the way it did until 2008. Nearly 2 years after the democrats took control of congress.

Everyone in this country (legal or not) gets healthcare. You are not denied care at a hospital because of an inability to pay. The issue was coverage, not healthcare itself. The 30 million number is nonsense as well. Out of that 30 million, half of them are people elligible for medicare who never signed up for it. That leaves 15 million. Of that 15 million, half of them were young adults who could afford healthcare, but chose not to get it. So now we are spending 1 trillion dollars for 8 million people to get substandard coverage from the federal government. Seems worth it, right?

Obama only speaks with a teleprompter. Explain to me how the murder of daniel pearle "caught the world's imagination... for the need of a free press"
Does that sound like a rational or intelligent sentence to you? You would think Daniel Pearl's murder would show the world the type of savage barbarity we are facing...but hey. Obama went to Harvard and stuff.

Toledo area is 13% to 14% and up the road in the Detroit Metro area it's up over 16%....with the actual number probably being much higher.

I wonder if there is a formula to reasonably calculate the unreported jobless?

Would they add 5% across the board? More? Less?

What % of accuracy? (+ or -) what?
