Nobody Works in One
in Five U.S. Families

Washington Free Beacon, by Ali Meyer

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/21/2017 4:57:35 AM

No family member was employed in 16,069,000 U.S. families in 2016, or 19.6 percent of families, according to newly released data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The number of families with nobody employed increased by roughly 19,000 from 2015 to 2016, although the percentage slightly declined from 19.7 percent to 19.6 percent. For the purpose of the study, the bureau counts a family as households headed by a married couple or by unmarried women or men. The definition includes households with children under 18 years old and households without children. There were 82,092,000 families in the United States in 2016, according

"lack of job skills"? Well, no. A larger cause is the abundance of entitlement checks.

OP took the words out of my mouth. Even in our rather prosperous Texas town, there are more healthy-looking people on "disability" than you can shake a stick at!!

Before LBJ´s Great Society giveaway, the unemployed had to stand in line for a block of cheese and a can of peanut butter. That made it much easier to find a job.

Umm...is there any other common trait among those families in which not a single person works? Why yes, yes there is, as noted in the statistics farther down in the article. Looks like the federal government is now running the biggest plantation in the world.

Unsurprisingly, between the Democrats destroying our economy (after they took over both Houses in 2007) and Obama´s assuming office in 2009, the highest recent percentage was in 2011. Also, what is the age distribution? Couldn´t a healthy chunk of the families where no member is employed be retirees, a group which as the boomers retire would seem likely to expand? The statistics presented would be more meaningful if it were considering more typically working age Americans. Another question is what percentage of families are entirely comprised of people who have either never had a job or have no history of regular employment. btw, Hispanics are walking right into the welfare trap that has destroyed many millions of Black families since the War on Poverty first began.

And while y´all are indignantly riding your "entitlement" hobby horses around the conservative corral, don´t forget that rather many of us are 70-something year-old baby boomers. We are finally retired, or at least semi-retired, living the good life, wallowing in Social Security luxury. Enjoying the generosity of the dole, lazily drinking our malt liquors, waiting on the front porch for our next free! check. Thanks, y´all! (Don´t believe all the numbers you read. Remember what they say about liars, damned liars, and statistics?)

While I don´t agree with your characterization, #6, the article leaves unclear whether the depressing statistic includes retirees who are enjoying themselves after 40+ years of work and contributing to their current affluence. A more honest assessment would be to know the percentage of under 65s who aren´t working. That number, I suspect, would still be depressing.

I may have missed it, but the statistics don´t seem to break out retirees.
In addition, the statistics do not including working off the books, drug dealing, prostitution, other criminal activities.

No the fact that 20 Percent of families do not have anyone working is government welfare programs have made to easy to not have to.

Policymakers do not need to address the "skills gap that is preventing these unemployed families from seizing these available good jobs," they need to drastically cut welfare programs to force them to seek training and enter the workforce.

So boys and girls here´s what we really need to get our arms around:

20% or so (as pointed out undefined contribution from retirees) with no worker likely to vote for more free stuff

20% or close to it (16.7%) of all people who are employed work in government jobs from local to federal. Likely to vote for more government, it´s their trade.

Many others in neither above category do work but are net beneficiaries of wealth redistribution. Without a means of eliminating intersection with the above that´s 47%. Not likely to vote for you and I to keep more of our income.

We have passed a tipping point. The only thing saving us at this juncture is that there´s a reason those of us who pay for all the rest of them have the means to do so and they do not: We get up in the morning and work, and when that´s not enough we work harder. When we hit a bump in the road and are out of work we pick ourselves up go back to school, take a lesser position, do whatever it takes to get back to work.

Those on the dole lack the ambition to do otherwise so we can just barely beat their numbers at the poles. So of course they import more gimmedats.

Apologies to the genuinely needy for whom it is our honor to assist. You are being used as cover for the thieves.

When Hurricane Ike devastated much of East Texas some years ago....I received a letter from the state which confirmed that as small business owner in this area I was entitled to compensation $ because my business could not operate due to the unavailability of lights, gas and all the things needed to run a business. I took this letter down to the local welfare office, as instructed, where I was met with a dozen Black office workers who looked me up and down and told me to take sorry white azz back home cuz they didn´t no nuffin´ ´bout no money for no honkies like me.

One more point: many of us "unemployed" contribute by volunteer efforts, working for free in clinics, schools, and museums, building Habitat houses, maintaining historic properties, teaching ESL and GED prep, running summer programs for kids. Some of us work part-time, doing yard work, accounting, baby sitting, housekeeping, free-lance writing and photography, editing, tutoring. We don´t make that enviable list of worthily employed folk. But our efforts add considerably to the weal of the community. Stick that in your statistical pipe and smoke it.

According to the technical notes linked to the article:

"Family
A family is a group of two or more persons residing together who are related by birth, marriage, or adoption."

That would apparently include retirees.

"Unemployed
The unemployed are persons who had no
employment during the reference week, were available for work at that time, and HAD MADE SPECIFIC EFFORTS to find employment
sometime during the 4 week period ending with the reference week."

Many retirees have small businesses or part-time jobs. Employment is any paying job with no minimum number of hours, and any small business.

Make of it what you will.

My wife is retired and I haven´t received a W-2 in 15 years. Kids out of the house for 20 years. I have a six figure income while being technically unemployed as I was laid off from my last "real" job even though I never applied for benefits. It would be wise to assess these employment figure with a whole shaker full of salt.

FTA: The presence of children made parents in the family more likely to be active in the labor force. In 2016, 80.4 percent of families with children under 18 years participated in the labor force by holding a job or looking for one, compared with 56.7 percent of families with no child under 18 years.

That´s where they hid the retirees..."households without children," 43.3% not working. I´d hazard to guess not all of that sector are of "working age" (young adults before building a family and career) but are included to make the statistic look worse because we now have a Republican administration.

This is like the study that found 95 million able bodied people not working where ´able bodied´ was defined as anyone over the age of 16.

That would be people in school, stay at home spouses, the disabled, and the retired.

Not really sure what to make of studies like this.

I am not older than 65 but I am retired from homeschooling my three children through high school. My youngest isn´t employed either. She is a full time student and due to other medical issues and our ability to support her in school, she doesn´t work but attends college all year long. If my husband were to die tomorrow, we would be one of these families since I have medical issues that prevent me from working but don´t receive any governmental assistance. Therefore, they may consider me an able-bodied person, but I am not. Also, since my dh can support us, why does our family employment statistics matter to anyone? Phony stats.

Anyone trust figures from the government ?

Many of those on welfare are there because it´s more lucrative. We have trained people to think if you are broke, others keep giving you things and the more kids you have the more refunds you will receive. Do better and lose it all. Worse yet, a lot of food handouts are not healthy, so I see why they develop diabetes and high blood pressure.

Unfortunately, whatever is done to correct the problem will throw the disabled and elderly under the bus too. A refugee will receive more SS and benefits (plus money to start a business) than most retirees.

The scandalous secrets

It still looks like a scene out of a fairy tale: The handsome prince and the beautiful movie star, revealing the Cartier engagement ring he’s just given her — complete with a 10.47-carat emerald-cut diamond flanked by twin baguettes. In their official January 1956 engagement photos, Grace Kelly — already an Oscar winner at 26 for “The Country Girl” — and His Serene Highness, Prince Rainier of Monaco, 32, look quietly content. The Hitchcock blonde’s mother, Margaret, smiles sweetly at her second-youngest child. But no one’s grin is bigger and jollier than that of John B. “Jack” Kelly Sr., Grace’s father.

The New York Times has a long story about the role FBI chief James Comey played in shaping last year´s election. Buried well into the piece is this bombshell: Responding to questions from The Times, the Justice Department confirmed that it had received a criminal referral — the first step toward a criminal investigation — over Mrs. Clinton´s handling of classified information. But the next morning, the department revised its statement. "The department has received a referral related to the potential compromise of classified information," the new statement read.

Pity King Kigeli V, the last king of Rwanda, who died, aged 80, last year in Washington. The former monarch had been living in greatly reduced circumstances after the market for honorary Rwandan knighthoods—his primary source of income since being deposed in 1961—dried up. King Kigeli had traded the ancestral fortresses of his youth for a subsidized townhouse and subsisted largely on food stamps, but he was also, according to his obituary in the New York Times, supported by occasional stipends from a British organization known as the International Monarchist League (IML), of which the chancellor (and why should a Monarchist League

We’re told the details in the book, which depicts the campaign as inept, “could only have come from someone in the inner circle.” Dennis Cheng, the finance director of Clinton’s presidential campaign, has been sending out messages to determine where the leaks come from.

An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s. Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on

But it had no independent information on the overall field of battle in states like Florida, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. So when the election began to turn Donald Trump’s way, the Clinton campaign had no idea.

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported.
