Real Unemployment Rate Is 23%, Not 8.1%

Whenever you see the monthly official unemployment rates, you have to realize that they are modified rates, not actual rates.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) includes people that are unemployed during the week of the survey and without a job for the four previous weeks.  Hence, the latest report says that 8.1% of Americans are currently unemployed.

But that is not a real picture of what is going on in the American job market.  The BLS figures do not take into account the millions of Americans that have had to take part time jobs because they have not been able to find full time work, those who have exhausted their unemployment benefits and those who are so discouraged that they’ve given up looking for work.

There is a second statistic called the Alternative Unemployment Statistic.  The AUS is always higher as it counts all of the employed except for the discouraged workers who have been out of work more than a year.  The current AUS figure is 14.6%.

However, there is another even more realistic unemployment statistic that portrays a far more accurate picture of America’s job market.  The SGS or Shadow Government Statistics encompass all of the different factors that deal with unemployment.  The current SGS unemployment figure is a staggering 23%.  That means that nearly 1 of every 4 Americans are either unemployed, underemployed, exhausted unemployment benefits or are so discouraged that they’ve given up looking for work.

Another indicator of the devastating employment picture is the cling rate.  In better times, a number of people readily move from one job to another.  However, that is not the case today.  The number of people clinging to their current jobs is the lowest it’s been in decades.  People are afraid to leave their current jobs for a new one for fear of losing the new one if there is any kind of layoff.

With all of these figures painting a very bleak picture of Obama’s America, I still don’t understand why so many people want to re-elect him.  The last president to be re-elected with unemployment figures over 8% was Franklin D. Roosevelt, but he didn’t have 44 consecutive months over 8% like Obama.  Actually, no president in the history of our nation has come close to Obama’s record.  And yet, he continues to lead Mitt Romney by several points in most of the latest polls.

America can’t survive a second term with Obama.  We’ve barely survived the first term let alone consider four more years of gloom and doom.  To borrow a line from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, with slight modification:

“You are without doubt the worst president I've ever heard of.”

And Obama’s response would probably be the same as Captain Jack Sparrow’s:

“But you have heard of me.”


  • deeme

    The President doesn't care about employment..He has spent the last four years campaigning for the next four years..These four years have been about handing out free stuff , bribing voters for future votes..and socializing the best medical system in the World .ask doctors how this is all going to work ..especially in a country that's not allowed to have borders..So the real happy people who actually are better off are the illegals..break the law and get rewarded and they don't even like this country..the people who did it legally did and can't believe their eyes..His base the takers, easily overlook all the criminal waste of taxpayer's money ,that was used to keep pensions running and not creating any jobs.,and building up failed green companies , where the money still hasn't been found..I just read the volt is costing 50,000 dollars per car , are you freaking kidding me, they don't care it's not their money ,not only that but that runs on coal which they are trying to rid the World of..Is there anything they don't do that's not backwards??Taxpayer's money is of no concern to any of them..they applaud everything he says and make fun of actual taxpayers because they are the chosen who don't have to "share" anything..How can the very people who's unemployment is the highest , the blacks and hispanics vote for more of the same..He so takes your vote for granted, why do you let him??

    • Screeminmeeme

      I agree, but the thing is, Obama doesn't care about jobs or the economy and he has said that. He said he doesn't care if the economy get better, as long as it is fair according to his liberal socialist point of view. Fair to him is taking money away from those who work for it, and giving it to those who do not work. That's what Obamacare is all about. They take 700 Billion from Medicare to hire IRS agents to make it fair. Obama is the biggest scammer to ever be president, and to this day, I cannot believe that America, only 7 years after 9/11, voted a guy name Barack Hussein Obama into our White House.

      • JennieWalsh

        The momentum is growing for a HUGE, WRITE-IN vote for Ron Paul! Romney also wants a communist/socialist/Satanic/liberal government controlled HELLthcare system. Every polling place MUST have a sign-up sheet (names, addresses and phone#s) for Ron Paul voters so that the Satanic neo-cons who are running both the DNC and the RNC cannot steal Ron Paul's votes. We must do all we can to overthrow the bankster-gangsters and their organized crime cartel/shadow government who are running, plundering, enslaving and destroying America. Let us all vote for Ron Paul while we still have the right to vote. We are fools to believe the so-called "polls" that the Satanic media neo-cons put out. Ron Paul has TREMENDOUS support!

        • 09dogg38

          Please don't waste your vote on Ron Paul.If you are voting for him,you are voting for Obama. You know damn well he's not going to get enough write in votes to be elected.Surely you're smarter than that. You may not like Romney,but I'd give my neighbors dog a vote before I'd vote for Obuma. Please think about it.Supporting Paul is supporting Obuma.

          Unfirtunately, 09/07 was the drop dead date for filing for write-in status in ALL remaining states that allow write-in. I supported Paul after Cain dropped out but between the GOP royalty and Democrat idiots running him in the ground, he had no chance. At least he had the gonads to speak what Obama bin Lyin been doing in regards to Iran and nukes. He is going to allow a nuclear Iran while pretending to be doing something about. Paul quite simply said let them have it. But, the takers are likely going to win this election anyhow. Quite like the GOP to nominate the easiest target in the stack for the Democrat class warfare tactic. I can even envision a cartoon with Romney being the target and Obama being Robbin Hood. Each arrow in the quiver has a different name like Rich, Aloof, Out of Touch, etc and Obama is endlessly hitting the Romney bullseye with each shot. Maybe in 50 years the GOP will finally pull its cranium out of its rectum and actually look around and figure out why they always lose. It's not because your not main stream enough, it's because you are too much like your opponenf to have much of a measureable difference.

      I hope you are right. I have found it unbelievable that people voted him into office 4 years ago & even more unbelievable that they would support him again. I have to admit that I was glad when he got the nomination 4 years ago as I didn't think that he could be elected and was afraid that hilliary could. Boy was I wrong.

      • armedlamb

        The 08 election was rigged just as it will be in 2012. Obama and thugs might even create a crisis in order to declare martial law; therefore, suspending the election indefinitely. Then he will become dictator-in-chief......the plan all along.

  • PMDavis

    This just gets me that we keep portraying such a deceptive number for the unemployment rate. Anyone that is keeping up with what's going on knows this number, 8.3%, is completely wrong but yet everyone keeps using it and everyone knows it's just a coverup to try and make Obama look good. Romney and Ryan should keep hammering the "Real" numbers and keep reminding everyone how deceptive this administration is and how untruthful they are portraying everything.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4DW23G4VU2HJAPBFZ7OHNC2FVY John

      PM you are not considering that the left is in control of the media and the educational system. And i remind you that the American communist party, because of the pressure that Joe McCarthy put on them disbanded and merged with the democratic party in 1953. Since then they have worked forcefully to take more control of the educational system which they have done. Jimmy "stupid" Carter started the Department of education so the demodorks could get even more control of the system. There were more then 30 million in the American communist party. We have a great many idiots in this country. But do take heart, the polls are a fabrication of the left and are not true. Very few conservatives will answer poll questions. So Ovomit thinks he is ahead when in reality he is far behind.

  • marcusB

    obama is going to win. your figures make Romney even more unbelievable. He's gonna employe 12M in year 1. Yea right. And nows he's for Obamacare Light; except he walked that one back. And Im gonna close loopholes but you guys are too stupid to tell what. And Ryan voted for sequestration (on tape praising) before he told everyone he didn't vote that way because he voted for it because it wasn't going to be done. Boy your Rove Boys are excellent. Hope you have your tickets to a non socialist country. Maybe Newt will speed up that moon colony. You white boys are gonna need some help.

He almost word for word in his convention speech last month made the same promises he did in 2008. Big corporations are sitting on $1.7 trillion dollars awaiting the outcome of the election, knowing they are going to need it for taxes and regulations if Obama winds and would use it to hire millions of Americans - 12 million in the 4 year term Romney promises I am told from my friends in industry is not unreasonable.

      Murderous American made automatic rifles were sold to Mexican drug cartels to murder two American Border patrol agents. Eric Holder still has not told Congress who authorized these illegal gun sales and when he first learned about it. Perhaps these weapon transfers to criminals were OK'd on the Moon.

    Misinformation from our government? Naw, not in America! The national debt just crushed through 16 trillion dollars but that is not our debt, its well over 220 trillion dollars. Our unemployment rate is not 8.1% but at 23%. Neither parties want to tell us the truth. We're screwed. I thought the unemployment in my area was about one-fourth, and thought our area just was harder hit than the average across America. I never realized our area was representative of America!

  • TRUTHTELLER

    The true unemployment numbers seem realistically accurate at 23%. Most Politicians, Democrat or Republican, won't highlight these shadow figures for obvious reasons. Obummer doesn't want tne uninformed public, to know just how bad things are in this country. If they did, he would lose tons of votes.
    The non-Conservative Republicans, (RINOS) don't talk much about it because a good part of the problem lies with inaction on their part, and their acquiescence over the last several years, to the liberals in the House and Senate. Ie. Sub-Prime mortgages, taxing and feeing businesses to the point of their outsourcing jobs abroad, etc.
    I will take issue with the writer on the polls, however. The Obummer administration, in true Chicago gangster style, has threatened the Gallup poll organization with a lawsuit, for publishing poll figures, favorable to Romney and against Obummer. Since that lawsuit was threatened, amazingly, the Gallup polls have changed to Obummer's favor. Hmmmm.
    Right now, I am taking these poll numbers with a grain of salt. The Left, controlls the MSM, why not the polls. I also understand that a much higher percentage of Democrats are included in the polls, than Republicans. If this is the case, all poll numbers are skewed toward Obummer.

  • Oops!

    More idiocy from Giacomo! He quotes "statistics" from some distortion-addicted source called "Shadow Government Statistics", which couldn't be trusted to tell you how much toilet paper is left in their bathroom. As usual, this website -- and it's "brother" online hate outlets ("Freedom Outpost", "Political Outcast", and "American Vision") -- use quotes from rags like World Net Daily, Breitbart.com, Glen Beckkk's "Blaze", and right-wingnut propaganda outlets like Fox Noise, to spread lies and disinformation. But that's what they do, and it's doubtful that the majority of their followers have the slightest interest in facts. Sad but true.

      Charles Payne was on FNC this morning with the 'who was polled' in that Gallup poll that had Obozo ahead by 5 points after the White House (Axelrod) complained that the polls were not favoring Obozo & they were going to sue (which they did). Following is who was polled: DemoRats = 447, Republicans = 331, Independents = 39. That pretty much tells the entire story. Do you remember the 2010 midterm elections when the polls were all saying the Republicans would only take 30 seats in the House. We ended up taking 66 seats in the House of Representatives! The only person that predicted correctly was Dick Morris. He's the only guy I believe. Go to dickmorris.com every now & then. He should be coming up with the predicted electoral college soon (by state) for you to view. Keep the faith!

    I've been telling people about this for 2 years now, but it seems that between Dancing With The Stars, American Idol and the Globalist owned and controlled lamestream news media, people just don't want to accept the scary truth. I guess it's much easier to live in a world of make believe that TV propaganda provides for them, than to face the harsh reality. The Global Elite criminal banking cartel even announced back in 1986 that they had decided that they were going to work towards turning the USA into a 3rd world country in order to lower the morale of Americans enough that they will accept their one world global Communist government (New World Order) that they're laying the groundwork for at this very minute. Who do you think engineered the false flag operation known as the 9/11 terrorist attacks? If you answered Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, you answered wrong. If you answered the USW Government, Israeli Mossod and "Al CIAduh", you answered correctly.

  • Ray Y.

    The only way Obama can be beat is by encouraging those who do not support him to vote. If we want him out of office the most likely candidate to beat him is obviously Romney. We have to do more than just plan to vote for Romney, we need to volunteer time to promote him, especially in California, which is predominately Democratic. To win California would not only be an upset, but could be the winning difference.

    The big problem is also that many retirees have gone back to work and are declaring themselfes out of work. We know that there are many people who declared themselfes out of work, yet are workin under the table getting paid under the table. Over 600,000 state, local and federal Government workers have lost their jobs and have become part of the jobless. I am also of the opinion that there is a unwritten not talked about cabal amongst many businesses not hireing antil after the election becaus they don't want Obama to win. They are holding the voters hostage by demanding that if you want anykind of a job, you must vote for the interest of business only, not for the worker, because business looks at the worker as an expense not as an asset to the company. We know that businesses can't do anything and make big profits and pay CEO's millions without the grunt work of the middle class and the working poor. They can't hold out much longer because they will loose their competive edge, they also must grow as a business, otherwise they will start to stagnate and become less competitve. No matter who wins, hireing will start again after the elelclion, Corporate greed can not last for ever.

Stalin did it, Mao did it, Hitler did it. The only reason he is showing so well in the polls is he has to. If he was behind in the polls by the 10 to 20% he really is behind, then when he won the election there would be too much protest and an investigation. If he doesn't win with the dead, the illegals, the pets and the idiots, he has SCYTL counting the votes.

    Urge your friends, family, and neighbors to see the movie "2016". This film gives an insightful and realistic look at President Obama and his political ideologies. His promise to fundamentally change America was not an idle boast. He has succeeded in accomplishing part of this goal but he needs another four years to complete it. If he is re-elected, the America you and I know will no longer exist. It will be a third world, socialistic country with the majority of people depending upon the government sharing the wealth. There will no longer be a middle class and your country will no longer be a super power but just another third world nation struggling to survive. The future of your children will be mortgaged to a national debt that can never be repaid. The election coming in November will be the most important in the history of the United States and the outcome will determine it's survival as a free republic.

    The only thing that makes any sense as to why Obama still has such high numbers is that people feel secure with receiving government hand outs which Obama will continue to promote.

I guess our Congress, those that are not Comnunist or Communits sympathizers, just sit there a let all of this happen.

Do you buy everything you see advertised? No? Why not? What do you mean "They aren't telling the Truth"? (Have you any idea how many BRAIN-DEAD VOTERS believe that if it is said on Television, it must be true?) Unlike most, you don't watch enough television. If you don't, how can you be mesmerized by the reporters who worship the Obama god? How can you be secretly mass-hypnotized by all the subliminal messages? Did I say it? No? Okay.

    He won't win again unless people stay home and don't vote, that's what he's counting on but as far as I can see the ones that voted for him the last time, young and the seniors will drop since he told them nothing but lie after lie and they are certainley not better than 4 years ago.The polls, I believe are accurate are close but the undecided will come out and turn the tide!

    There is a fellow from Wyoming who sometimes comes to our Greeley (Colorado) Republican breakfasts. He is a retired economist and spends a lot of time emailing each and every county in the US and finding out how many people living there are on assistance. By his figures the actual number of unemployed is 28%.

    Yes, 23% would be about accurate, which would put us on par, in that metric, with the Great Depression. I hear people talk about it not being as bad. I saw a chart a while back whwre some organization had charted the economic course of the great depression and the current recession to that point in time and overlayed them. The courses were virtually identical. Keynesian economics is fine. The problem is, aa with anything else liberal idiots put their hands on, they sbuse it until it can't take any more. Keynes advocated the government stepping IN, but, BUT, THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NEVER EXCEED 25% OF GDP IN DEBT DOING IT!!! We are already over 100% of GDP and climbing.

  • AmericaSleeps

    Give me break Gallup just came out with real poll putting Romney ahead, and the white house is going to take them to court for the truth.
    Bloomberg and Rassmusen have been caught fixing up fake poll numbers for B0 on iIIegaI immigrants, and CNN has naturally been caught with fraudulent polls favoring B0.
    So how does B0 stay ahead the same way the fake polls kept Reagan behind his liberal opponent until election day, but now we have Diebold electronic fake elections with a part owner being Chavez in Venezuela.

    I'm still reeling from the stupidity of $89,000 per car, they can't sell for $49,000, so they're going to the government for a fraction of the cost to the government.
    Solyndra went broke, GM is probably heading South again with this fiasco.

    Believe me, I could have done a better job than this prez. I know how to squeeze a penny when I have to, when we're already in a hole; sensible people would quit digging.

    After all your pissing and whining, most of you still don't realize we are directed by the Constitution (Law of the land, which they want to do away with), that if/or when our government become a threat to the country, WE THE PEOPLE are charged with the task of taking whatevr steps are deemed necessary to return control of our country back to the citizens. At this point,that can only be accomplished by removing the corrupted officials. The problem that presents is that they are all corrupt. If not actually guilty of a specific crime, very few indeed, they sat by and allowed the others to commit their ccrimes, and that would include that group on the hill called ther Supremes. The whole machine is corrupted and the only way to fix it, is to tear it down and rebuild it from the bottom up, and never let our government EMPLOYEES usurp the powers tey have taken this time around. It can be done, but WE THE PEOPLE must not expect a broken and totally corrupted machine fix itself. That would be like putting the wolves in charge f watching the sheep herd.

  • WVF

    Since there is so much confusing data and misinformation out there, it is difficult to believe that 23% is an accurate number; however, I'm willing to wager that it is at least double the 8.1% put out by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a federal governmental agency. Unemployment, under-employment, and the number of people whom have just given up looking for work is staggering. I would estimate that it must be at about 16%.

    Maybe we need to stop name calling and look at the bigger picture. Is a Morman a better choice, yes he may not be the ideal but is 4 more years of 24% unemployment or underemployment better than being a nation that has pride in leading the world into the best ways of life. Stop and realize that Iran is the fastest Christian ppulation in the world. As a veteran of a war that was a conflict speaks out I did not risk my life for this type of a nation. A Marxist homosexual loving Marriage hating politically grabbing nation in which politicians elected to support me and my views telling me to shut up for they know best. I don't know about you but that is totally out of character with this nation. Washington needs a clean house. If we let this current group continue say good-by to ALL freedoms. We are on the pathway of Germany before Hitler took control. We are on the road of The Roman Empire. Wake up now you who are out there wishing things will get better and doing nothing. Let us prove the polls wrong and push new leadership in who believes in America and the Constiution and the Billof Rights. Kick out the bums!

  • USAF1969

    Oh yes, I forgot to add who can vote for a party that endorces Muslim extremists, Homoxexuals, and out of control politicians who are so caught up in lies they woudn't know what the truth is if it bit them. The unemployment rate needs to add the current political idots to its rolls. Kick them all out NOPW or say goodby to this nation.

    This should be nothing new to the American public except for the fact the media hides this from everyone. Look at the number of new food stamps they're giving out. Look at how long the lines are at the food banks. Sad state of affairs.

    i don't believe the polls due the organizations that report these polls. Come on, The washington post, new york times? The gallup poll showed Romney ahead, and they get a visit from axelrod and are currently being sued by the justice dept. This corrupt administration will stop at nothing. Don't believe all this crap the chicken noodle network reports either. Vote these heathens back under the rock they crawled out from.

  • Daniel from TN

    Don't take stock in the polls. A poll will say whatever the person sponsoring, and, therefore, paying for, the poll wants it to say.
    At this time there are only two polls worthy of any attention; Zogby and Rasmussen. Both of these contact thousands of people during a poll vs. the FEW hundreds by other polling organizations. Zogby and Rasmussen also report the EXACT question used in the poll, the EXACT demographics of those polled, and report some of the answers word for word.
    Zogby and Rasmussen produce honest and reliable polls. That's probably why we do not see many polls from either of them.

    America or obama this November! You can't choose both!

    Are not our employees in DC just a bunch of grand old liars.

The more these morons believe they are god like the more we loose. Either our employees tell the truth or get fired , after all there surely is enough people not working that would take the job opening created.

  • YosephGL1

    Obama claims for 2 achievements:
    1. Creating new jobs- no one talks about natural growth in number of jobs created by free markets.every country has its own numbers.I wonder how many of those 143,000 new jobs are achieved due to government initiative and how many by natural growth?

    2. Eliminating Been laden-good thing by itself but did the entire terror organization severely damaged? it seem s not -otherwise there is no other explanation for the terror attack in Libya and most important -the administration's cover up.
