The Scratching Post explains unemployment numbers

The Scratching Post nails it:
COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 5.6%.
COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?
ABBOTT: No, that’s 23%.
COSTELLO: You just said 5.6%.
The "Who's On First" style routine goes on from there. It's great: Abbott And Costello Go To Wall Street

It'd be funny if it wasn't true. Okay, it's true and funny. But a sad commentary.
