Giving up, walking away

From: FDR Presidential Library

Government stats show unemployment has fallen to 8.3 percent. Government stats tout the creation of 243,000 new jobs.

But new jobs tell only part of the story behind this latest decline in official unemployment.

Some contend the perceived dip in unemployment only occurred because another 1.2 million Americans  have walked away from participating in the labor force.
