New Record for Number of Americans NOT in the Work Force

Here’s a chart from the St. Louis Federal Reserve showing Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data on persons not in the work force.  Record numbers!!!  One of the reasons the statistics on unemployment have shown decreases lately is that there are fewer persons counted among the total. When one compares the total population to the number of employed, one can see that there’s a real problem here.
