  •  where 23 million comes from (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    From the US Dept of Labor, BLS summary report for July 2012

    12.8 Million unemployed
      8.2 Million part time workers seeking full time
      2.5 Million not working, looked for work in past year, not in past 4 weeks.

    This totals to 23.5 million.

    The last group are called marginally attached workers.  These are those who wanted work, were available for work, have looked for work in prior 12 months, but had not looked for work in prior 4 weeks.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
