Discussion > 9.6% Unemployment ?

The government calculated U3 number of 9.6 is a joke....U6, the government's broadest measure, is at 16.7%

That number is here...

However it has exluded long term discouraged workers since 1994......Shadowstats is a great site that tries to provide more realistic economic data....they include long term discouraged workers in their numbers and put unemployment at 22%....
