    In 20% Of American Families, EVERYONE Is Unemployed

    According to shocking new numbers that were just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of American families do not have a single person that is working. So when someone tries to tell you that the unemployment rate in the United States is about 7 percent, you should just laugh. One-fifth of the families in the entire country do not have a single member with a job. That is absolutely astonishing. How can a family survive if nobody is making any money? Well, the answer to that question is actually quite easy. There is a reason why government dependence has reached epidemic levels in the United States. Without enough jobs, tens of millions of additional Americans have been forced to reach out to the government for help. At this point, if you can believe it, the number of Americans getting money or benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million. When I was growing up, it seemed like anyone that was willing to work hard could find a good paying job. But now that has all changed. At this point, 20 percent of all the families in the entire country do not have a single member that has a job. That includes fathers, mothers and children. The following is how CNSNews.com broke down the numbers…
    A family, as defined by the BLS, is a group of two or more people who live together and who are related by birth, adoption or marriage. In 2013, there were 80,445,000 families in the United States and in 16,127,000—or 20 percent–no one had a job.
    To be honest, these really are Great Depression-type numbers. But over the years “unemployment” has been redefined so many times that it doesn’t mean the same thing that it once did. The government tells us that the official unemployment rate is about 7 percent, but that number is almost meaningless at this point.
    A number that I find much more useful is the employment-population ratio. According to the employment-population ratio, the percentage of working age Americans that actually have a job has been below 59 percent for more than four years in a row…

    That means that more than 41 percent of all working age Americans do not have a job.
    When people can’t take care of themselves, it becomes necessary for the government to take care of them. And what we have seen in recent years is government dependence soar to unprecedented levels. In fact, welfare spending and entitlement payments now make up 69 percent of the entire federal budget. For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “18 Stats That Prove That Government Dependence Has Reached Epidemic Levels“.
    And what is even more frightening is that more families are falling out of the middle class every single day. As a recent CNN article explained, approximately one-third of all U.S. households are living “hand-to-mouth”. In other words, they are constantly living on the edge of financial disaster…
    About one-third of American households live “hand-to-mouth,” meaning that they spend all their paychecks. But what surprised the study authors is that 66% of these families are middle class, with a median income of $41,000. While they don’t have liquid assets, such as savings accounts or mutual fund holdings, they do have homes and retirement accounts, with a median net worth of $41,000.
    “We don’t expect them to be living paycheck to paycheck,” said Greg Kaplan, study co-author and assistant professor of economics at Princeton University.
    The American Dream is rapidly becoming an American nightmare.
    When I was growing up, I lived in a pretty typical middle class neighborhood. Everyone had a nice home, a couple of cars and could go on vacation during the summer. I don’t remember ever hearing of anyone using food stamps or going to a food bank. In fact, I can’t even remember anyone having a parent that was unemployed. If someone did leave a job, it was usually quite easy to find another one.
    But today, the middle class is being ripped to shreds and according to one new report there are 49 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity in 2014.
    How can anyone not see what is happening to us? America is in the midst of a long-term economic decline, but the mainstream media and most of our politicians seem to think that things are better than ever. They continue to try to convince us that “business as usual” is the right path to take.
    But one-fifth of the families in the entire nation are already totally unemployed.
    At what point will we finally admit that what we are doing right now is simply not working?
    30 percent of all families unemployed?
    40 percent?
    50 percent?
    If we stay on the road that we are on now, things are going to continue to get worse. Millions more jobs will be shipped overseas, millions more jobs will be replaced by technology and crippling government regulations will kill millions more jobs. The middle class will continue to shrink and government dependence will continue to rise.
    Most people just want to work hard, put food on the table, pay their mortgages and provide a nice life for their families.
    But the percentage of Americans that are successfully able to do that just keeps getting smaller.
    Wake up America.
    Your middle class is dying.
    The Real Unemployment Rate: In 20% Of American Families, EVERYONE Is Unemployed

    I found it disturbing that the mass media liars hide the truth, similar alternative media said the same thing in Europe.

    When you know how the powerful acted and scammed the systems like the Rothschild, Rockefeller, Astor, Vanderbilt, Bundy, Collins, DuPont, Carnegie, J.P. Morgan, etc, you will understand who are the real owners of the western societies and how they care about us, off course to see all of that you have to think out of the box and stop be brainwashed.

    I'm new to this and in my knowledge, I think there's a little percent of unemployment in this country. So if all the Americans didn't want to work they will only be supported by their government. I'm not surprised that it will abuse, and the true number of percentage discusses by Franc is really alarming.

    The precentage of unemployed people in the USA is much larger than the official government numbers. There are also a large percentage of people who are unemployed by choice, because you can get away with not working and let the government support you. Entire families of unemployed do not surprise me. That increases the cumulative welfare benefits for the family. In many states, just one person can earn more than $30,000 per year in welfare benefits while doing nothing.

    In 35 states welfare benefits pay more than minimum wage, so why would someone with zero job skills want to learn how to work?

    This thread reminds me of one of the famous scenes in the movie Platoon, which is a popular movie about the Vietnam war.

    King: Hey, Taylor. How in the fuck you get here anyway? Why, you look educated.

    Chris Taylor: I volunteered for it.

    King: You did what?

    Chris Taylor: I volunteered. I dropped out of college, and told them I wanted the infantry, combat, and Vietnam.

    Crawford: You volunteered for this shit, man?

    Chris Taylor: You believe that?

    King: You's a crazy fucker, giving up college.

    Chris Taylor: It didn't make much sense. I wasn't learning anything. I figured why should just the poor kids go off to war and the rich kids always get away with it?

    King: Oh, I see. What we got here is a crusader.

    Crawford: Sounds like it.

    King: Shit. You gotta be rich in the first place to think like that. Everybody know the poor are always being fucked over by the rich. Always have, always will.

    You know the unemployment is already very alarming in Europe particularly a few big European countries following the same path of Greece at a very fast speed. In general you can double or even triple the official number to get the true numbers. Now in US, it takes the same way and I think the globalism is extremely destructive, much more than a system of internationalism. I remember to talk about that with a guy in a different forum who was making the amalgam between globalism and internationalism which is way different. The globalism is a kind of dictatorship where all countries sovereignty disappear around the world , except one body like the European Commission and only the appointed bureaucrats manage the system, and democratic votes are almost nonexistent (like the feudalists did in the past centuries, except today in a modern way), while the internationalism is a cooperation between countries without losing sovereignty.

    Anyway, since the 19th century some elite (The bankters) dreamed of the new world order, from history people has always rejected it. It is all about money, domination and power.
