  1. I don’t trust unemployment statistics, they don’t take into account the people that just gave up like my hubby. He was laid off in 2009 and couldn’t find a job that would pay anything close to what he had made so he just says he is retired now ( he is 62). I think lot of people older than him have done this.

    1. I agree with your opinion … I think the true figure is a lot higher.
      What’s worse (MHO) is that the way our current legislation is, it is often better financially for people not to work – if they get a job without good benefits, they then need to pay for quite a bit of stuff, which they could get ‘free’ if they were unemployed. I don’t know how to fix the system, but know it needs to be repaired.
