Yikes… 92,898,000 Americans Not Working

by CNS News
March 6, 2015

The labor force participation rate hovered between 62.9 percent and 62.7 percent in the eleven months from April 2014 through February, and has been 62.9 percent or lower in 13 of the 17 months since October 2013.

Prior to that, the last time the rate was below 63 percent was 37 years ago, in March 1978 when it was 62.8 percent, the same rate it was in February.

“The civilian labor force participation rate, at 62.8 percent, changed little in February and has remained within the narrow range of 62.7 to 62.9 percent since April 2014,” the BLS said in its release on the February employment data.

92,898,000 Americans were not in the labor force in February, according to data released from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on Friday.

    After you read this article, go up to the last article and you will know why!!!

  • David says:

    Usual tea party lies. They are including children, under 18, most of those don’t work! Students, retired people another huge batch. Plus disabled. Of the work force the unemployment rate is 5.5%

    1. Keen Kirk KuntMan says:

      Do you believe in Santa Claus too??………….LMAO!!!….They are not including any of those people, if they did the numbers would be much higher!!!

      So, while govt. claims that more jobs were created, this is what is also happening…see below:

      Please Inform yourself .

      1. I Seigel says:

        How do you think we should inform ourselves? How about with facts? Maybe from the same Bureau of Labor Statistics that’s quoted here. Here is a line from the report just out:

        “The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little
        changed at 2.7 million in February. These individuals accounted for 31.1 percent
        of the unemployed. Over the past 12 months, the number of long-term unemployed
        is down by 1.1 million.”

        You can go to the BLS website to see more facts, but I know you think they’re all lies, so you’ll continue to get your “facts” from Breitbart and the Washington Times and FOX.

          You are another uninformed , confused , brainwashed liberal leftist ; start here ; How many Americans are on the give me , give me everything for free .???/ answer : 48% of the Population ( do this now : 48% of 305 Million Americans ) . Next : How many Americans can`t find a decent job ???? = 20 Million Americans . This are my personal research facts ; not Fictions of yours . Research it yourself . Last one : $ 1.7 Billion the price Taxpayers have to pay for Illegal aliens amnesty of 5 Million ; just wait and see what this amnesty will do to those few jobs left . You have not seen anything yet ; just be patient and you will be very sorry of what you are saying here . Don`t forget 18+ Trillion Deficit .

          1. I Seigel says:

            The deficit? Doesn’t seem to be a problem right now, does it? We’ve had promises for the past 6 years that disaster was about to hit – interest rates soaring, stock market crumbling, our credit rating in shambles. Where’s the disaster?

            And you toss all these meaningless figures around. The real question is HOW MANY WANT TO WORK? And why is it that Hispanics are the only group who have gotten their employment back to pre-recession levels?? Answer that. I’m curious to know your “knowledge” on the subject.

  • I Seigel says:

    Lazy moochers. The only people wanting to work are the illegals. What are we going to do with these lazy Americans?

    Of course, this 92,000,000 figure also includes all retirees, students, mothers who don’t want to work, and injured people. But the rest are just moochers living off of your and my tax dollars.

    Oh, and you can add another 100,000 to this figure. IBM is in the process of laying off that many employees. But they are calling it a “resource action”, so it’s not a mass “layoff”. I’m sure the stockholders will be happy.

            Bwaaaa Haaaaaaa Haaaaaa. What a freaking joke you are!! Are you kidding me?!?!?! THAT’S the kind of “proof” you offer?!?!?! THAT’S what you call “informing yourself”?!?!?! You are a moronic, empty-headed parrot JOKE.

            Look at that blog, why don’t you? It’s done by one guy, writing all kinds of loony crap. Look at the advertisers he gets to pay for advertising space on his page! Survivalist crap and other loons.

            And did you offer one FACT to refute what I said, that the vast majority of those “102 million” people are NOT looking for work?!?! They’re retirees, students, mothers at home, injured people, people on leave for FMLA, medical, etc.

            Come back when you have something REAL, you freaking idiot. Now go away, STFU and stop wasting my time. You have absolutely NOTHING to contribute.

      2. I Seigel says:

        That’s a lot of moochers. None of them want to work, huh? Wow, who woulda thought. I’ll bet the Hispanics can find work. In fact, their employment percentage is back to where it was pre-recession. At less the Hispanics aren’t mooching. Must be a lot of lazy ass white folks. There aren’t that many black Americans.

        1. raffaelecafagna says:

          The Hispanic are not mooching ??? zero said : jump the fence , come here and I will give you everything for free ; free education, medicals , housing assistance , driver licenses and Recently 3 years back taxes of $ 15.000 to $ 24.000 each . Lord have mercy ; you are uninformed and a waste of time ; all I can say , you are not an American ; an illegal , maybe .

          1. I Seigel says:

            Really? I didn’t see where Zero said that. Show me the quote please.

          2. raffaelecafagna says:

    oH but Why is our INCOMPETENT Pansy POTUS i so SHY and Not Bragging about Telling yet another SUPERB Success story of his Incoherent Economic Policy??? Is he that “MODEST” or just a plain everyday LYING Bag of TURDS???

  • Keen Kirk KuntMan says:

    But, they tell us unemployment is at 5.5% & dropping….OY VEY….These stats are phonier than pro-wrestling!!!

    1. The redhawk says:

      But If the “PANSY POTUS” were to add the REAL figures, Unemployment would be at over 12%… and then what could he LIE about???

      1. Keen Kirk KuntMan says:

        Methinks, it would be higher than that!!!

        1. The redhawk says:

          and that will drive the LYING Pansy to drive his Manure Spreading machine at WARP speed…24/7

      2. raffaelecafagna says:

        say at least over 17 / 18% ; some states would be more .

        1. The redhawk says:

          and IF we count his Plantation dwellers and HIS Uneducated College Grads and academic Trolls… I bet the avg is over 23%
