Those numbers don't even tell the whole story. The average work week has gone down to just over 33 hours per week due to full time folks, working but only getting part time hours. So those that are working are only working 82.5% of full time work weeks. So 16.5% is not working at all, those that are working are also 17.5% laid off. 83.5% of working people working at 82.5% fulltime capacity really gives 68.9% full time work equivalent going on right now. 31.1% unemployment.
