Here’s the trend line:
About 6.2 million Americans, 45.1 percent of all unemployed workers in this country, have been jobless for more than six months – a higher percentage than during the Great Depression.
The bigger the gap on someone’s resume, the more questions employers have.
“(Employers) think: ‘Oh, well, there must be something really wrong with them because they haven’t gotten a job in 6 months, a year, 2 years.’ But that’s not necessarily the case,” said Marjorie Gardner-Cruse with the Hollywood Worksource Center.
It could be because employers, in the face of ObamaCare’s uncertainty and the overall gloomy economic picture thanks to extreme debt and the coming wave of extreme taxation to pay for it all, aren’t hiring.
Here’s Democrat and Clinton crony James Carville on the “unrest”:
“It is going to be very difficult,” Carville said. “But the country, if that is what we are doing, this is gruesome on people. This unemployment rate for this long is humanitarian crisis of the first magnitude. …
“You know, look – this is a humanitarian — you know, you’re smart enough to see this,” Carville said. “People, you know, if it continues, we’re going to start to see civil unrest in this country. I hate to [say] that, but I think it’s imminently possible.”
I wonder — is that a mere prediction, or a threat?
