Perhaps some senators and US citizens are waking up during this recession?

Again: watch the economy:

An official unemployment rate of ca. 10% is bad enough but a de facto rate of 20% is cause for concern.

... and I'm sure we're there. The U.S. citizens who have given up finding work, who are off the unemployment rolls, or are under-employed amount to well over 20%.

In all fairness; I doubt that our unemployment rate is much above 20% even counting in the unwilling part timers like myself.

I am employed but; being on straight commission, my hours are down an honest 30-40% compared to this time in 2007.

Hell; during the depths of the Great Depression, our official unemployment rate was maybe 25%---------and, the methodology back then was more 'honest'.

YEAH! let's hear it for the faithful americans over at numbers usa!
around here los angeles, clearly many are unenployed even with the scamtion pay outs these
people are taking to the streets in search of whatever they can find. on sunday nights we put our trash out and many can be seen walking up and down the streets looking for anything of value.
reminds me of tijuana when we were kids , you would see them using trash to build homes and looking for whatever that might be of survial use.
