one topic was the warehousing of young black men that California is engaged in...in the last 15 years quite a large percentage have been incarcerated due to the made-up "war" on "drugs".

It got me to wonder, when we talk about the unemployment rate falling - are incarcerated people counted as employed, unemployed, or...?


"Not looking" is the other category. Retired & discouraged people fit there too.

Oakland California is planning to help with the problem by hiring people who have served their time.
