The official unemployment rate is 5%, but it was modified to not count discouraged workers, those who shifted to disability (which is up 10 million or so in 8 years), retired early. If you use the unemployment measurement we used in 1980, we're at 15% unemployment.
You see confirmation of this in the workforce participation rate that's fallen to 62%, a rate we saw in the 1970s.
We never got out of the Great Recession that started in 2007 - it has only be under-reported because we have a black Democrat President. If a Republican president is elected, you'll suddenly see reports of homeless encampments, joblessness, etc - and all blamed on the guy who just took office.
The "new" economic problems we're starting to see globally are that the interest rates dropped to zero, bail outs with borrowed money and other economic boosters that raised economic from negative to barely positive have all run out of steam - so we're back to negative numbers. And all the government interventions have thus failed to keep us from looking like it is OK.
