Three Million Missing Workers
Have Given Up Finding Jobs in America

Let Freedom Ring Releases New Video
In Response to Today’s Unemployment Numbers

PHILADELPHIA, PA —Upon release of the unemployment report today, the expectation that things were "getting better" has vanished with no change in unemployment. More than three million workers have disappeared from the workforce. They’ve simply given up hope of finding a job in America.

If those three million were still counted in the numbers, unemployment would be well over 10 percent—1 in every 10 Americans who can’t find a job to support their family.

Let Freedom Ring, a national public policy non-profit organization committed to promoting Constitutional government, economic freedom and traditional values, just released a video called "Missing Workers" that will highlight these three million missing workers.

"President Obama is claiming success in lowering the unemployment rate, but this isn’t success," said Colin Hanna, president of Let Freedom Ring. "Three million workers are missing from the labor force, tragically given up hope that they will ever find a job. If they were still looking for a job, unemployment would be over 10%. We can do better and we must."

Let Freedom Ring is hosting the web video on which offers an alternative vision for America, one where jobs are created through growth, not temporary government programs.

"We can do better and we must," says the video, "better with strong economic growth created by getting government out of the way and empowering individual Americans with the opportunity to pursue their dreams freely."
