You can't trust official figures. Take a look at shadowstats.com. US unemployment is closer to 15%.

Only going to get worse too. It's not like the US (or the UK) has remotely-generous unemployment relief. Maybe this will end the illusion that unemployment = moral degeneracy, and get this changed to a more European system (percentage of previous wage).coushang
