Re: Unemployment Rate Dropping in El Paso

That's interesting Rose. You must have worked at the unemployment office sometime in the past...lol I don't think most people realize that if you double the stated unemployment rate it's closer to the actual rate. Unemployment in the U.S. is closer to 18% if you include those NOT collecting unemployment benefits. In Europe, you can collect the dole for the rest of your life if you want. I believe the Congress will try and implement a European style of unemployment benefits in the future.
