Video: Are You Really Unemployed?

This video is interesting because I never really knew that these people would not be counted in the unemployment rate before I took this class. I think that if all Americans that don't have jobs right now went out and really looked without just assuming that there is no jobs out there the unemployment rate would slightly decrease.

I thought this was a satirical video that pointed out the difference between people who are actually unemployed and those who are not. Before learning about discouraged workers I never knew that certain people without jobs are not counted towards unemployment just because they are not included in the labor force. It’s interesting and I am sure there are many people in America who are unaware that they aren’t actually unemployed even though they are without a job.
