WEB Notes: Of course no one ever talks about these numbers. There are 94 million working age men and woman who are not in the labor force. How exactly do you think they survive? Living off the government to a large degree through social programs. Yet, they tell us the economy is fine and only 4% of the population is not working. Lies, lies and more lies. If the economy was fine they would not have artificially low interesting rates and the Federal Reserve would not need to continually print money backed by nothing.
