I came across this post on LinkedIn, and I believe it is true. However, it only tells part of the story.

These statistics of long-term unemployed would be much higher if every unemployed American were to be counted…

What about those who have never received unemployment benefits?

What about those who were forced to retire early when their company ‘right-sized’?

What about the new graduates who are living back at home while they try to launch?

Do any of these categories describe your experience?
