This just means even more people have exhausted their unemployment benefits and as such are no longer counted as part of the unemployed. When you exhaust your benefits you drop off the rolls of the unemployed. Why isn’t that pointed out in the various articles about unemployment percentages?

The number that is published is fake anyway. The real unemployed, like people ulysses mentioned, or working two to three part time jobs, is rarely mentioned.
