Structural Changes to Participation Rate From 2006 to 2016, the U.S. civilian labor force participation rate has hovered in the 62 to 67 range, with a fairly consistent decrease in the participation rate since 2009. The decline in the participation rate has been attributed to structural changes and not the overall health of the economy. This structural change in the amount of people actively seeking work has occured due to retiring baby boomers, a decline in working women, and more people deciding to attend college.
While studying employment, another important figure to determine is the labor force participation rate. Here, we compare the size of the labor force with the number of people that could potentially be a part of the labor force. It is important to note that we do not include people under the age of 16 in this figure. In addition, students, retirees, the disabled, homemakers, and the voluntarily idle are not counted in the labor force
Have you ever noticed that the left just writes propaganda that they get from their party? They try to spin everything to be positive. Anybody who can think for themselves knows what they say is not true or only a half-truth. People like fuzzball only say things to get you going. He really can't be as uninformed as he portends to be.
What party was in control of congress during clinton surplus and GDP growth.. hint starts with a R
Yes. Lets also not forget the Carter economy inherited by Reagan with double digit inflation and interest rates. Lets also try and remember the Carter's CRA and Clintons changes to the CRA which ushered in the housing crash at the end of Bushs' term that was ignored by Barney (the banking queen) Franks who was chairman of the House Banking Committee.
