U-6 Unemployment rate for April 2018 was 7.4 percent

161,527,000 was the civilian labor force for april 2018

multiply that by .074 and you get 11,952,998 that are unemployed

the latest jobs available number was 6,600,000 according to the jolts report for march 2018 (latest number we have)

subtract that from the unemployed and you quickly realize that 5,352,998 of the COUNTED unemployed cannot possibly find work.

What about those whose unemployment has expired and have not found work and are no longer counted?

Do you realize now why I have used the name of “The Volcano” for my latest publication?
