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

Comments:
"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.

We’re finally getting somewhere. Dead horses are useless to most folks, but Democrats, rendering plants and certain newspapers are determined to follow the stink. The latest scoop by the intrepid horse-hunters of The New York Times has led to a meeting by Donald Trump with Russians who were said to have savory secrets about Hillary Clinton for sale. This was at a meeting during what the newspaper called “an inflection point” in the late, lamented presidential campaign of 2016. Too bad for the crack scoop artists of The New York Times, it wasn’t actually Donald Trump, but Donald Trump Jr., who manages

Nearly half of Japanese people are entering their 30s without any sexual experience, according to new research. The country is facing a steep population decline as a growing number of youngsters abstain from sex and avoid romantic relationships. Some men claimed they "find women scary" as a poll found that 43 per cent of people aged 18 to 34 from the island nation say they are virgins. One woman, when asked why they think 64 per cent of people in the same age group are not in relationships, said she thought men "cannot be bothered" to ask the opposite sex on dates

What a miserable week it’s been for Democrats. Not that they’ve had many good weeks of late, nor have Republicans for that matter. But for the political left it’s been deliciously bad…and a whole hell of a lot of fun to watch. The week was capped off by dueling hypocrisies from the radical progressive of the party. After days of breathless condemnation of a joke tweet from President Trump about CNN, the pearl-clutching claims that a few seconds of video will lead to violence against their employees gave way to insistence that words don’t matter.

There was more of the same old, same old California news recently. Some 62% of state roads have been rated poor or mediocre. There were more predictions of huge cost overruns and yearly losses on high-speed rail -- before the first mile of track has been laid. One-third of Bay Area residents were polled as hoping to leave the area soon. Such pessimism is daily fare, and for good reason. The basket of California state taxes -- sales, income and gasoline -- rates among the highest in the U.S. Yet California roads and K-12 education rank near the bottom. After years of drought,

One nice thing about speaking to a foreign crowd: They’re unlikely to realize how weird your remarks will sound to the people back home. At least, that’s surely true of the lefties in Hamburg who cheered as Mayor de Blasio waxed bizarre. Right now in New York, talking up the subways as a metaphor for social harmony would bring Bronx cheers. Public transit does indeed have “the rich and the poor, people of all faiths and all backgrounds, cramped in close together” — but they’re all also facing delays and service outages, thanks to leaders like de Blasio who ignored the

Republicans pretend that they are powerless to do more about the great ship Obamacare than to change the fuel on which it runs and rearrange its deck chairs — never mind to sink it. Because they lack 60 votes to stop “unlimited debate,” they claim to be unable to vote even on whether to allow health insurance to be sold across state lines. They pretend to believe that fidelity to unlimited debate in the Senate trumps the importance of our health care system. But the reason why they prop up Obamacare rather than tearing it down is that they are

It is a tale of two New Yorkers. Donald Trump goes to Germany to defend Western civilization and promote economic growth. Bill de Blasio goes to Germany to throw verbal Molotov cocktails and promote socialism. One is the leader of the free world, the other is a great pretender.
