The State of the Union is not well, as a matter of fact it is extremely ill. Let us analyze this fact. The population of the United States currently stands at about 315,000,000 souls. If we check in with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics we find 11,760,000 people are officially unemployed. Additionally, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states there are 89,705,000 working age Americans that are “not in the labor force”. This adds up to 101,465,000 working age Americans that do not have a job.
