The 2.25 Million Hidden Unemployed People Reveals The Stark Truth: There’s No Fucking Jobs

Johnny Void here argues that apart from those officially counted as unemployed according to the agreed international definition, there are two and a quarter million hidden unemployed consisting of those who have stopped looking for work out of despair, those looking after the home, but would like to be working, people unwillingly forced into early retirement, and the sick and disabled, who would rather work.
