I'd heard it was bad down there, but I didn't think it was that bad!

So that would make the real rate closer to 20% then.

Plus students who stay in school because they know there are no jobs.

Plus illegals who won't show up anywhere.

For Canada:
Quote:
Whereas the average unemployment rate in 2011 was 7.4 per cent, the unemployment underutilization rate was significantly higher at 10.6 per cent.

That figure is down from the recent 2009 high of 11.5 per cent but still well above the pre-recession low of 8.6 per cent....

But according to Canadian Auto Workers union economist Jim Stanford, the number of hidden unemployed in Canada is actually much higher.

Rather than rely on the answer to what Stanford describes as an “arbitrary question” about the reason people have abandoned their job search, Stanford suggests looking at the decline in labour force participation in recent years. Based on non-seasonally adjusted Statistics Canada data, he says more than 330,000 people have dropped out of the labour force since the pre-recession peak in 2008 -- about 10 times the number of “discouraged searchers” identified by the agency.

As do we want more legals to compete with our unemployed. It raises the GDP, don't you know.

The US rate would be an entire percentage point lower if the austerity-pushing jerks hadn't laid off so many public sector workers.

Yeah it's real unfortunate for you that the almost 750,000 state and federal employees that lost their jobs over the last several years have the nerve to remain in America as a constant embarassing reminder of the failure of bad conservative economic policies. Maybe that'll be outsourcing's next triumph, "export" the unemployed themselves to parts unknown so they won't be so annoying to Romney, Ryan, Norquist, and the rest of their ilk.
