Let me see if I understand this. The rise in unemployment is because people who were not officially unemployed resumed their job search. When exactly were they removed from the unemployed roster if they have not found a job? If this was the case, the unemployment rate should not have risen unless they are double counting. Also, the benefits have been extended so that means people are claiming them but not necessarily looking for work.
