I think the unemployment is under estimated as many have dropped out of the work force pool. No jobs and exhausted benefits makes for frustration, which have caused many to just drop out. I, for one, was a victim of plant closures and now am doing my own thing...feast or famine now. I also have seen several factories, in rural areas, that have closed and have gone to Mexico...I also purchased a taco shell kit that was made in Mexico marketed by a leading company. Strange...I couldn't believe it that we can't even make tacos here. It is the elite's fault...break the middle class...making everyone poor using their sock puppet Presidents to assist in screwing things up. What a bummer Obummer has been...I doubt the people of Kenya would even vote for him after seeing his accomplishments.
