    Gallup's underemployment measure hit 20.0% on March 15th. This was up from 19.7% two weeks earlier and 19.5% at the start of the year. While the U.S. unemployment rate has leveled off (for now), the truth is that job seekers are increasingly finding that all they can get is part-time work. In the vast majority of cases, part-time work will not pay the mortgage or even really feed a family.

    All of this economic pain is causing havoc in many American households. In fact, 1.2 million U.S. households have been lost during the recent recession as economic pain has forced many Americans to move in with relatives. It can be an extremely humbling thing to have to turn to relatives for help, but that is what an increasing number of Americans have been forced to do.

    But now there are indications that things may soon get worse for the U.S. economy.....

    If The U.S. Economy Is Experiencing A Recovery Why Does It Seem Like Things Keep Getting Worse?

    Don't worry Bush proved that jobless recoveries are just fine.
    Just like Reagan proved that defecits don't matter.

    Hey Neubarth, tell it to the King. How many times have you danced the Henny Penny Polka? Only the RW fringers care about your inherited ESP talents and predictions of doom and gloom.

    I am going to petition to Gunny to have your screen name changed to Eyore.

    You are such a deep deep source of good cheer.

    And when no one can deny that there is no recovery happening it will still be Bush's fault. After all they will still have inherited it. Ask Obama he'll be glad to tell you.

    Boy, Crotch Scratcher, are you messed up! The Sky fell more than a year ago. The Evil Black King already knows about it. The Evil Black King has decided that to keep all of his sheeple tranquil and placated he will tell them that the sky is floating back up above where it belongs. "If you close your eyes, you can see it." he tells the sheeple.

    Meanwhile I am pointing out that it is still on the ground. Help, it is fallen and can't get up! I'm right and the Evil Black King is wrong.
