People Not Working

The left likes to remind everyone that Obama has brought down the unemployment rate in America to around 5%. Much better than where it was when he came into office. That is true.

But what they’re ignoring is the fact that almost 95 million Americans are out of the workforce and no longer looking for work. There are more Americans out of the workforce now than anytime in the past 38 years. There is a reason the unemployment number is down: it is so bad out there, people have simply stopped looking for jobs.
