932,000 Americans dropped out of labor force in October.

quote:

the number of people not in the labor force exploded by nearly 1 million, or 932,000 to be exact, in just the month of October, to a record 91.5 million Americans! This was the third highest monthly increase in people falling out of the labor force in US history.

So, how far did the unemployment rate drop this month? Are we under 7% yet?

Eventually, unemployment will be zero and no one in America will have a job. It will be perfect!!!

But I literally just heard CBS Radio touting how unemployment was improving.

If more people stop looking for jobs, the unemployment rate drops.

One of he things that amazes me over the last 5 years is how many Americans have been convinced that having a terrible economy is the new norm and can't be changed.

This is how the information was presented by CBS just now:

CBS guy announces the numbers and says unemployment rose.

Government guy then is given a few seconds on air to explain how the government shutdown probably caused this.

CBS guy introduces an economist.

Economist says the hiring is a sign of momentum in the labor market.

IT IS ALL PROPAGANDA FOLKS.

Looking at a wide variety of factors and events going on, this country is headed to a Great Depression level of pain. And its gonna be soon rather than later

Is there anywhere in those stats where we can quantify how many of the 932K were legitimate dropouts by people retiring?

No where near that many. Net worker population growth (new entries-retirees) is ~125k/mo. And the 55+ is the fastest growing employment age group....

I know that Social Security doesn't account for everyone who has retired (and includes some who are disabled), but that number has been averaging about 150k (give or take) for a while (and 140k was the number for September 2013).

So, no more than 1/5 of that 932k were retirees - and probably closer to 1/6.
