  1. What is the employed/population ratio? (number employed divided by civilian, non-institutionalized population 16 years or older… usually given by BLS as a percentage. Highest on record for male-type people was just over 88%.)

  2. Look into the sky rocketing amount of folks on disability and disability payments since the advent of the “jabs.” The data is there. For the lucky ones who survived their jabs they may become incapable of working and drop out of the labor force.

    While not the sole factor I’m sure, it certainly does not help the hiring situation especially when young people were told to get the Operation Warp Genocide jabs.

    This may be the dirty little secret no one is willing to talk about.

  3. All of the “Help Wanted” and “Now Hiring” signs suggest that there’s a labor shortage. The 2.4% rate reinforces that.

    I’m left wondering how the people that aren’t in the workforce are supporting themself.

  4. How do we compare to 2019, pre-Pandemic?

    What is our current inflation rate history, yes, back to pre-Pandemi, as well as gas prices?
