Sanders: ‘Real Unemployment Remains Much Too High,’ People Giving Up Looking For Work

Thursday while campaigning for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said that real unemployment “remains much too high.”

Sanders said, “Let’s be honest, real unemployment remains much too high if you add people who don’t have any jobs with people who are working part time that want to work full time. You know, anybody who works part time that wants to work full time. A lot of people out there have given up looking for work in high unemployment areas. Real unemployment is over nine percent.”
