Why get exicted about an unemployment rate that is dropping only because the labor participation rate is droping? If you look at the statistics, we are still high unemployment because so many people have given up trying to work, eventhough they want to work.

The only jobs being created are minimum wage fast food jobs. The unemployment stats are bogus. Many people have stopped looking for work or grossly underemployed in low paying jobs. The real unemployment is probably double the reported rate and I wouldn't even want to guess what the underemployed rate is.
