    List of countries by employment rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Employment rate by country. The statistics shows that 1 out of 3 americans are not working. Even Russia beats USA when it comes to employment. So 1 out 3 americans are on diffrent welfare or government funded programs. Is that to many, should more americans be working? Look to Canada, Norway,Iceland and Switzerland why are they having more people employed?

    1. Switzerland:78.6%
    2.Iceland:78.2%
    3. Norway:75.3%
    10 Canada:71.5%
    12 United Kingdom: 69.5%
    13 Russia 67.4%
    16 USA 66.7%

    I think Russia's numbers must be including child prostitution.

    Democrats tell us that unemployment stimulates the economy, so the bigger the unemployment the more stimulus.

    we are actually even lower than that shows. Currently our participation rate is 63.5%, or of population to employment it is 58.3%
    When Bush left office in January, 2009, it was 65.5% and 60.5% respectively.

    does that include self employed or employed on a salary?

    if unemployment is 8.1% US Labour Statistics - then employed would be 91.9%


    not even WingNuts claim unemployment at 33.3%, much less any credible statistic ....
