    WHO should the unemployed in the United States blame for their predicament? Politicians?

    The so-called economy?  Themselves?  Why?  Why not?

    Corruptions in government...! finding corruptions in the government do "things" with people worse than being unemployed. Not only in the US but also in many countries around the world.

    Partly themselves and the job market.  There are some people who are unemployed because they did not complete High School.  Many jobs nowadays require a H. S. Diploma or a G.E.D.  There are also some people who have no motivation to work.  They might get a job and quit after a few weeks for a variety of reasons.  There are others who can not find work in their town.  They might want to work but the jobs are unavailable.  In some cases it might be too much of a financial burden to relocate.

    Socialist states in general have high levels of unemployment, due to all the rules and regulations that discourage hiring.

    First of all the unemployment stats are lies when you run out of UI benefits and labeled a 'discouraged worker' to keep the numbers low when in reality if counted the same as did in the 1930's it would still be double digits. These lying stats started in early 1990's. I remember. They changed the counting and with a stroke of a pen the unemployment went from 23% to 9% overnight. LIES LIES LIES.

    People are NOT lazy, they DO want to work. Don't blame the victims!

    1. Fewer new openings
    2. Lack of real growth
    3. Government sector layoffs
    4. Chinese job grab
    5. High taxes

    The wage laborer's starkest choice is to work for an employer or face poverty or starvation.

    It is a bald faced lie that discouraged workers are no longer looking for employment, because they ARE looking for work  - they simply ran out of unemployment benefits.

    They should blame the loyal party voters that have voted for their party. It was their party that offered these politicians that created not only the unemployment, but the bad economy. The middle class is missing millions of people since the 2008 economic meltdown, and many just gave up when they lost their homes, unemployment, and had to go on welfare.

    The politicians not only bailed out the companies that crashed the economy, but they allowed their executives to give themselves 7 figure bonuses, for actually bankrupting their company.

    So the prime guilty are  the loyal party voters, followed by the politicians that they elected or reelected since the 70s.
