What is the Real Unemployment Rate?

Lies, damn lies and statistics - and the numbers of unemployment in the US are buried there somewhere. It is crystal clear that the published numbers are set by the government at the lowest number, where the opposition push much higher numbers. Who is right? Anyone?

Richard Wolff joins Thom Hartmann to explain why the numbers we see can’t be trusted.

Professor Richard Wolff is an Economist / Co-founder, Democracy At Work / Author of numerous books - his latest is “The Sickness is the System: When Capitalism Fails to Save Us from Pandemics or Itself”
