The media will never report it — the unemployment, the real unemployment, is already above 10%.

It depends on how tightly we close our wallets this holiday season.

It matters not, since the majority in this country are no longer Americans, who cares if they are working or not?

It’s already actually over 15%, but if you mean the “official” rate, then I think it will be over 10% by the end of April.

As someone who got rolled on the election prediction, I’ll still make one here.

June 2013 UE report delivered in early July.

A number of employers have already announced huge layoffs due to 0bama, and I don’t even think the layoff due to sequestration have been announced yet. If they don’t know it, let me be the first to say that Retailers are in for a very rough Christmas Season. I expect seasonal hiring will be down, but enough, along with Bureau of Labor Statistics shenanigans, to make it till January when unemployment goes through the roof, and above 10%.

I think it will look bad as soon as possible because that will help Obama’s argument that we must have a deal immediately.

Obama unemployment rate is headed to zero. Real unemployment is well above 10% and headed higher.

The numbers don’t matter now.

Obama got his reelection, so he can just ignore them for the next 4 years.

Then, assuming we still have elections, he can pass the situation on to the next president.

I already told the kids dont expect much. Not that we cant afford it, but the future is unsure. Told them to start putting aside as much as possible. It’s going to get ugly.

24m ... that is the number of unemployed we all heard about

140m ... the number of people filing tax returns (ie: the working people of America)

24m / 140m == 17.1 %

the percentage of the working population unemployed

24m / (140m + 24m) == 14.6 %

the lowest possible unemployment number

Why wouldn’t unemployed people have to file a tax return? Unemployment compensation is federally taxable.

OK how about another prediction on when it will hit 15%

What was that company that waited to announce layoffs until after the election because Obama promised to pay their fines for failing to obey the law?
