    The unemployment rate is worse than what is being reported. I am in my mid-twenties with 2 bachelor's degrees, but have been unable to find a stable job in over 3 years. I know for a fact that there are millions of people in America that are still unemployed or underemployed. I feel that all news networks are not talking enough about jobs. Most people in the country are still living in the Great Recession. Stop praising the President for doing a great job when the country is rotting from within.
