That was a goof. I added the extra digit in there by mistake. I, of course, meant 7.8 and 7.9.

The U6 measurement of unemployment, the one that rightwingers love now because it's always higher, includes the unemployed, those who've dropped out of the workforce, and the underemployed, and is just a hair above 14% and falling. And that's the highest unemployment measurement we have.

The U-3 rate inching up to 7.9% is almost certainly due to people entering the workforce, because as the OP stated, our economy gained 157,000 jobs in January.
Fair enough. Good description. Thanks!

Your disapproval means I must have done something right. Thanks to you, too!
