    FOXNews.com - Jobless Rate Climbs to 9.6 Percent as More Americans Seek Work

    The unemployment rate rose in August for the first time in four months as more people entered the job market looking for work and struggled to find openings, putting pressure on the Obama administration to ratchet up its economic game plan.
    The unemployment rate rose from 9.5 percent to 9.6 percent.

    More good news.

    I actually think to real number is higher than that. I recall when times were good and everybody was working the number was still close to 4% since that many people chose not to work anyway.

    I do believe the number of unemployed or maybe even under employed is closer to 17% or it may even be higher than that. Obama spent $1 trillion to fix the problem and now, we still have the same problem and owe another trillion to the Chinese this changeee,feeleee thing is killing this great country

    I don't care if it's the government, business big or small, or an individual no one can borrow their way to prosperity.

    Debt is what got us into the problem in the first place. Interest for the most part is a waste of money.

    Living within our means, saving for a rainy day is needed. Not more borrowing and paying interest.
