I am amazed that the editors chosen to debate that subject were not even aware of the U6 unemployment statistics. They are rarely talked about or even mentioned by government official, that number includes under employed individuals and stands around 20.5% in California. They are not easy to find, but anybody a little inquisitive would find them on the department of labor website
