Why the unemployment rate is really higher than it looks

Huzzah! I am an emerging blogger.

Dan Gross' Moneybox column in Slate gives big ups to the Big Picture. Dan referred to our clear eyed view of what's become a contentious issue: the so called "Self-Employed Work-at-Home Contractors."

Thanks for the kind words, Dan!
(Sorry 'bout the wisecracks 'bout your alma mater!)

Dan also has an interesting column in the Sunday Times, which I will point to despite the fact that I am no where to be found in it, thus, ending my streak of mentions in intelligent commentary at a grand total of one straight.

I stumbled across your blog while I was doing some online research. The only thing the unemployment rate considers is how many are collecting benefits. Many exhaust their benefits, give up on finding work and end up on assistance, or start working part-time jobs to try to make ends meet.
