The unemployment rate in the United States is a lot worse then we thought. The underemployed and the discouraged have now been thrown into the percentage to a 16.2%. The author has given a chart of the estimated unemployment rates state by state. Each state has a larger number than what we have been told. Things are not looking up.
With this being posted, what are the unemployed american people to do? This has raised a large problem today in our country and it is not being resolved. One way or another a solution needs to be made. People are losing their homes everyday and even though the press says things are looking up, these numbers are to show they are not. The United States government or unemployed citizens themselves, are going to have to find a way to resolve the problem. It is sad to see the United States going in this direction without any guidance.
