Don't think that follows.

What's your assumption here?

That total population = unemployed + employed + sick + too old to work + too young to work?

I'm pretty sure that there are other categories not featured in that equation. House-spouse for instance?

28.9 million employed you asshat.

Haven't you learned that posting complete and utter tosh gets you ridiculed?

well said. I think it's pretty clear xcojo is a troll. Might be worth the mods checking if their IP matches old Hamish.

Out of the 28.9 million employed I wonder how many are part-time and how many are on reduced working hours due to the recession?

At least Hamish and Rhino managed the occasional accurate fact, I'm amazed you bother.

my take on the numbers , I always subtract the number of unemployed at the height of the boom from the current figures. These are the people who will never work , those who cannot and those who will not .
