    People Not In Labor Force Soar To Record 91.8 Million; Participation Rate Plunges To 1978 Levels
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-0...ges-1978-level

    Curious why despite the huge miss in payrolls the unemployment rate tumbled from 7.0% to 6.7%? The reason is because in December the civilian labor force did what it usually does in the New Normal: it dropped from 155.3 million to 154.9 million, which means the labor participation rate just dropped to a fresh 35 year low, hitting levels not seen since 1978, at 62.8% down from 63.0%.

    And the piece de resistance: Americans not in the labor force exploded higher by 535,000 to a new all time high 91.8 million.

    The jobless, laborless recovery continues to steam on.

    And yet, I have never seen a bus in downtown St Pete or outside housing projects to take people to work in the fields. Big-agra still uses illegal labor even in this market.

    The fact that field work is the realm of migrant labor couldnt have anything to do with that I guess. Field work is for the most part not full time so people do not commute to it. There are special visas for foreigners to come and do this work but I do not doubt there are some illegals as well. But mainly they have normal jobs with travel mainly in construction.

    They don't need to take a bus when they can sit and collect those welfare checks. Gov. Scott here had a good idea, drug testing for those on welfare, but so far he's been shut down.

    When I'd be driving in St Louis on my way to a business appointment, can't tell you how many folks I'd see just hanging out in the street. doing nothing while I was working and paying those taxes to support them.
