Just FYI - The American Economy Sucks - 93 Million People Not in Labor Force
Yes, 93 million people over the age of 16 are not in the labor force. A bunch of them are pictured above on some form of permanent vacation that we taxpayers are paying for. I doubt the number includes illegals, estimated by me at 20 million (some of those are working, we'll be generous and say half) and if we add in the people 16 and under, let's add say another 20 million? So 93 million plus 10 million illegals plus 20 million kids is 123 million people out of a population of 300 million who are not paying taxes and the vast majority of those people are sucking money out of the system.
Update: Many of those working aren't paying taxes either, and in fact get more money back than they paid in via earned income credit.
Then a bunch of those are problem people so they add to the cost of having them running the streets or jails, especially when they're in jail and get tired of servicing bubba the cellmate so they decide to have us pay for a sex change so they can go live in the women's prison as a lesbian. And all the other variations of how these suckers cost us money.
I can see your ears coming straight up like a beagle's as you say to yourself 'But Kid, how can the unemployment rate be 5.3% then?" Answer: The UE number is bullshit. Just like every other metric published by the government.
