The United States is in a long-term unemployment crisis.
According to a report released by the Federal Reserve on Monday, a total of 4.4 million Americans are out of work, with an average of 5.8 million jobless.
That number is up from the 3.4% unemployment rate recorded in December and the 3% rate of unemployment in January.
While the jobless rate is the lowest since December 2009, many Americans still feel they are not getting a fair shot at a job.
According to the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of Americans out of the labor force is higher than it was in December 2008, before the financial crisis.
The number of unemployed has now been on the rise for more than a year.
According the report, more than 1.3 million Americans have stopped looking for work, and they are being turned down for every job.
And some states are experiencing a significant drop in jobless claims, according to the report.
As part of its effort to help alleviate the problem, the Federal Government has provided grants to employers to hire people back from the unemployment rolls.
That’s an idea that has gained support from the White House, as well as from President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
The report comes as the U.S. economy continues to slide, with a recent report showing that consumer spending is at a six-year low.
This means more Americans are putting their money in their savings accounts and not spending it.
Some businesses are struggling with their payrolls as well.
While employers are reporting an increase in workers who are looking for jobs, the vast majority of businesses are still hiring people on a part-time basis.
Many of these employers are struggling to keep up with the influx of jobs created during the recession, and have struggled to keep their businesses afloat in the face of the increased jobless pool.
