  I think the true unemployment is closer the 18% mark than the 7.5% mark.

  That is across the whole U.S.A..

Thank-you Affordable Care Act!  Employers figured out how to avoid paying health coverage - hiring more part time workers.

Ferguson Missouri has the least number of full time jobs. Oh wait, most of their residents are on welfare and they have broke into most stores so they had to close their doors due to the looters.

I think what people are missing in this article is the Underemployment rate (U-6, currently 12.6%), which is a truer measure of the unemployment picture then the U-3 often quoted by the media and the Administration.  All administrations quote the U-3 number because it shows the economy in better shape then it actually is. Currently 45% of the adult working population have full-time employment, spin that anyway you want - there are more Americans dependent on government handouts then any point in the country's history. In the U.S. 49.7 Million now live in poverty with nearly 80% of the Total Population in Near Poverty, the share of black Americans living in poverty expanded under Obama from 25.8 to 27.2 percent

BTW, a little-known section of ObamaCare defines “full-time” work as averaging only 30 hours per week, rather than 40 hours - however the Fair Labor Standards Act dictates that employers must pay non-exempt employees time and one half for any hours worked above 40 per week not the 'full-time' hours defined under Obamacare.

If the U.S. does nothing about illegals invading our country, the citizens here will find it harder and harder in the future to find jobs here. The stats that the government reports concerning the unemployment figures being less than 8% is pure propaganda. Many have simply given up on finding jobs and either is trying to obtain disability or retire. That's why the percentage appears lower.

3 of the 5 rely a good bit on illegal immigrants for labor.  Wonder if that has anything to do with their rankings.

Well, we actually have lost a lot of full time jobs since Obama took office.  He has created a lot of part time minimum wage jobs.   These account for over 72% of all jobs that have been created since he took office.  A dismal record to be sure.

But, at least they are some jobs.  Much of the reason can be laid at Obamacare's doorstep.  When you tax something heavily and load on 650,000 new regulations, you will have less of it, and that includes economic activity and hiring.

I'd say if you factor in those that have dropped out of the work force real unemployment stands at about 10.6%.  This is just using the same number of people seeking work as in 2006.  I am sure it is significantly higher.

Obama will hear from 'We the people...' in about 76 days.   FIRE every democrat on the ballot, and maybe the message will get through.

You cannot Spend and Borrow your way out of debt, nor can you Print and Tax your way to prosperity, no matter what the Lazy, LYING, Arrogant, CORRUPT Imbecile '57 states' Obama says.

Sacramento. Most under paying and temp positions are in Sacto. The only thing FULL in Sacto is shiats and overpaid politicians.

Obama is getting ready to use his executive order to give out 300K new green cards, and also 200K of unused green cards to illegal's in America. That will give our unemployed plenty of company when they are out on the street looking for a job.  Obama works against true Americans.

If Obama sends more troops to Iraq does it becomes his war?

This says it all! Union & Democrat controlled! You can smack talk (Obama) that anyway you want, it's a fact. And it plays into every city, county, state that is in trouble!
