Bernie Sanders: ‘Real Unemployment is Over Nine Percent’

Sanders comments only make the point that businesses are struggling in the United States due to high taxes and unfair trade deals that have forced manufacturing companies to move to other countries.

Thursday while campaigning for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said, “Real unemployment is over nine percent.”

He echoes many conservatives and independents who have pointed out that the Obama administration has changed the definition of “unemployment” in order to pad the numbers to make the job market seem stronger than it actually is.

Sanders said, “Let’s be honest, real unemployment remains much too high if you add people who don’t have any jobs with people who are working part time that want to work full time. You know, anybody who works part time that wants to work full time. A lot of people out there have given up looking for work in high unemployment areas. Real unemployment is over nine percent.”
