    U.S. Unemployment Up in February

    Underemployment is 19.1%, up from 18.7% in January

    PRINCETON, NJ -- U.S. unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 9.1% in February from 8.6% in January and 8.5% in December.

    The 0.5-percentage-point increase in February compared with January is the largest such month-to-month change Gallup has recorded in its not-seasonally adjusted measure since December 2010, when the rate rose 0.8 points to 9.6% from 8.8% in November. A year ago, Gallup recorded a February increase of 0.4 percentage points, to 10.3% from 9.9% in January 2011.

    In addition to the 9.1% of U.S. workers who are unemployed, 10.0% are working part time but want full-time work. This percentage is similar to the 10.1% in January, but is higher than the 9.6% of February 2011.

    I am more concerned about underemployment than unemployment.
    It is still growing. States like California are over 20%....1 in 5 employed people. Unreal.
    Underemployment has been masked by over credit consumption...people treating debt as income. Now that the credit giveaway is over - these folks are hurting something fierce.
    As an example...Food Stamp participation is at an all time high. Not a graph you will see rightwinger use.
    The working poor are growing.

    There is nothing funny about unemployment. Nor is lying about the figures funny. That you find it funny says more about you than about me, or the figures. It's not just conservatives that are suffering due to your messiah's incompetence, mo chara.

    I'm surprised the liberals aren't up in arms about it. If there was a Republican in the White House, they sure as hell would be. Jillian wouldn't find it 'funny' then.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to California Girl again.
