There was much hope in the feudal states of Europe that the monthly December drop in Greek unemployment - the first in years - was the beginning of the end for local misery. Alas, it appears the Greek statistics office leaarned a thing or two from the BLS and it was all seasonal adjustments. As reported earlier today, things just got much worse again, with January unemployment surging by 1.5% in one month to a new all time record high 27.2%. More importantly, the number of employed people in Greece, which dropped to a new record low of 3.617,771 compared to 3,888,400 a year ago (and down 11,653 from December), is now nearly as much as the entire inactive population at 3,346,423 and far below the ranks of the unemployed (1,348,694 - an all time high as well) and inactive.

Spread by gender, the unemployment rate for males was 23.9%, while a record 31.4% of eligible women had no job in January.

Finally, youth unemployment once again hit a record high 59.3% in January, even as unemployment among those aged 65-74 has soared from 0.9% in 2008 to 6.9% in 2013.

The real unemployment rate here is in the USA is probably not far behind Greece's 27.2%. The US government doesn't count the long term unemployed who give up finding a job in the official monthly number. Check out John Williams' website http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_dat...ent-charts if you don't believe me. He has our country at about 22-23% unemployment

Greece was "bought" by the rest of Europe "AND" by the US to stimulate the financial market.

Do I care whether the people from Greece have to eat their own crap? No, not really, because you reap what you sow and lets face it, Greece is as corrupt as can be.....so in other words....let them rot.
We have a lot more problems over here compared to Greece.
