Does this include those who don't have a permanent job but work when called in on a temporary or substitute basis? I'll bet not.

overburdened & mrinbetween, you should know very well there has to be a consistent way to figure unemployment. We hear the same old story every time when the unemployment rate goes down. "True unemployment is much higher." Does this include blah, blah, blah. It is exactly the same calculation that the Bush administration used and everyone before him!

Like I have said before, the unemployment rate is normally the last to improve in a recession. All other indicators have improved, now unemployment.
