UNEMPLOYMENT FIGURES MASK DEEPER PROBLEM, AFL-CIO SAYS

 UNEMPLOYMENT FIGURES MASK DEEPER PROBLEM, AFL-CIO SAYS
 WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland had the following comment on November's unemployment figures:
 The loss of 240,000 payroll jobs in November is another sign the Bush recession continues to erode the living standards of America's workers. Although the official unemployment rate remained at 6.8 percent, it would have risen to 7 percent had it included the 290,000 workers who dropped out of the labor force and were not counted as jobless by the Labor Department. The report clearly documents the need for programs to get people back to work.
