18 Minutes? WTF?!?!
From the Harper’s Index in the current issue:
Average number of minutes unemployed Americans are spending looking for a job each day: 18
While extending unemployment benefits is no doubt justified for millions of Americans, this shocking statistic (if true) raises serious questions about the manner in which states are administering those benefits and the oftentimes lax requirements they impose (or don’t) to receive them.
By the way, the source for the statistic is the Department of Labor.
