Labor Force Rate

Wow this graph really says it all.

The Labor Force Participation Rate shows what percentage of people are working, looking for a job and not looking for a job. It is a better yardstick to measure the workforce in America than is the usually cited "unemployment rate" which doesn’t count people who are so frustrated they stopped looking for a job.
