How the American dream is disappearing in the 21st century
The American dream may be alive and well, but it’s about to be swallowed by a new breed of jobless workers who are more likely to be in debt than ever.
That is, if they’re lucky.
The unemployment rate in the United States rose by 8.2 percentage points last month to 5.6%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
It’s the biggest monthly increase since the Great Recession.
It also marks a sharp drop from a peak of 5.7% in late 2014.
The number of people with jobs fell to a record low, with the number of Americans who were unemployed at the end of December down to 5 million.
The trend is even more pronounced in the Northeast, where the number fell to 6.4 million in December, the lowest since January.
While the unemployment rate has fallen, the number with jobs is still rising, and it’s not expected to go down any time soon.
What’s driving the surge?
While many blame the Affordable Care Act and the Great Depression, there’s another factor that’s playing a big role: The Great Recession itself.
That’s been a big factor, but that’s not necessarily the most important factor.
The new wave of joblessness is also a sign of the times, said Scott Clement, senior economist at the Center for Economic and Policy Research.
“We have a much deeper economic crisis that has impacted the American workforce,” he said.
“That’s what’s pushing them into debt and pushing them out of the labor market.”
The recession hit particularly hard in 2009 and 2010, Clement said.
And the Great Stagnation and Great Recession of 2009-2010 were also part of a longer economic boom.
The Great Depression was the largest economic crisis in U.S. history, Clement noted.
It lasted for about seven years and created millions of jobs.
It was a “great recovery” that was followed by a “Great Recession” lasting from 2007 to 2010.
There’s also another reason that the Great Jobless Wave of 2017-2018 has so much attention: The United States is the world’s largest economy, with about a quarter of the world economy.
It has a large middle class that’s willing to work hard to stay in the workforce.
There are also millions of Americans, both young and old, who are willing to take a pay cut if they can find it.
There was a big push for the Affordable Act to help workers get a better deal and make their lives better.
That led to millions of people signing up for health insurance through the exchanges set up by the ACA.
That has been a huge boon for businesses, Clement added.
But now there are people who are having to make that tough decision.
“It’s a tough time for them.
They don’t have a job,” he explained.
“They’re feeling that their lives are not going to change much.
So the whole economy is feeling the sting. “
The recession hit a lot harder in 2009, and that’s really reflected in the jobless rate, but there’s a whole lot more people struggling.
So the whole economy is feeling the sting.
The economy is struggling.
And so, there is an economic downturn, which is driving them to seek work, and they’re going to have to find work.”
What to do About the recession That’s putting pressure on the job market, too.
Incomes are down in many places, particularly in parts of the Midwest and Appalachia, where they’re stagnant or even down.
But in cities across the country, the unemployment rates are skyrocketing.
Many people have lost their jobs in recent years, and those who have are being forced to rely on the public assistance programs.
But even those who are not working, are worried about how they’ll get back to their jobs.
“You’re seeing a lot of people losing their jobs because of the recession,” said David Boulware, a research analyst at the conservative American Action Forum.
“A lot of them are going back to work, but their income is down.
They’re not able to get their jobs back.
And if they are able to find a job, they’re not going back into the workforce because they don’t know how to do the job anymore.”
Some people have been able to avoid losing their job by moving to another state or to another city.
But the Great Unemployment Wave of this year has put more pressure on people to move.
And some people are finding it hard to find jobs, particularly because they’re unemployed.
“In some places they’re actually having to move out,” Clement said, referring to the cities where people are moving out.
“Some people are saying, ‘I’ve been laid off.
Now I’m not going into the job hunt.'”
But even if they don, there are some people who aren’t getting back to the work they used to do.
“I have to move,” said Jessica Hurd, a 28-year-old teacher in California.
“My job’s gone.
I have to get
