Did you have a nice Scoop of Unemployment Stew????
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Funny how the seasonally adjusted U6 unemployment rate falls, while the non seasonally adjusted U6 rate jumps to 17.3%! Also nice the labor force participation rate drops to 1984 levels. So the 9% headline unemployment rate is a crock. This whole data series is toilet stew - the kind that comes the day after from eating Mexican or spicy Asian the day before.
