    Do you think the unemployment rate could be lower?

    Do you think people could work but don't because they don't want the low paying jobs that are out there or do you think the unemployment rate is accurate?

    No People are not working because they are not given the opportunity to work. Personally I have been looking for employment for 3 years, I've even applied at coffee shops and donut shops but nobody will hire me.

    You will always have a certain amount of people that will not work if they can sit on their buts and collect, but I believe most Americans would take any job if they could get hired.  As long as we allow employers to hire Illegal Immigrants for low wages so they can get cheap labor and take advantage of people, then Americans are not getting jobs that they should have.  The unemployment rate is far from accurate because it doesn't take into account of the unemployed that are no longer collecting benefits.  The true unemployment rate is around 22% if those people were added to the calculation.  The illegals need to go so Americans can get back to work.  We need to have severe penalties for companies that hire illegals.  I would include very harsh fines and imprisonment on the management that is allowing the hiring of illegals.  It would stop the problem immediately and the unemployment rate would go down to around 3%.
