Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 9.51.09 AMThis is a rude wake up call for America. Unbelievable that that many people are unemployed and not even trying to look for a job.

The number of people not in the labor force reached another record high in July, according to new jobs data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The BLS reports that 93,770,000 people (16 and older) were neither employed last month nor had made specific efforts to find work in the prior four weeks.

The number of people outside the workforce in July increased 144,000 over June’s record when 93,626,000 were not in the workforce.
