A lighthearted look at the sad truth
COSTELLO : I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT : Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 5.6%.
COSTELLO : That many people are out of work?
COSTELLO : You just said 5.6%.
COSTELLO : Right 5.6% out of work.
COSTELLO : Okay, so it’s 23% unemployed.
COSTELLO : WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 5.6% or 23%?
COSTELLO : If you are out of work you are unemployed.
COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!
COSTELLO : What point?
COSTELLO: To whom?
COSTELLO : But ALL of them are out of work.
COSTELLO: So if you’re off the unemployment roles that would count as less unemployment?
COSTELLO : The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?
COSTELLO : Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?
COSTELLO : Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
COSTELLO : And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?
COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to have people stop looking for work.
COSTELLO: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!
