That's the real number right now. The U-6 is the number adjusted for all out of work people instead of only counting the ones who get unemployment checks. How's that stimulus working for you?

The 17% would be the unemployment rate if you included peeople who worked part-time aka under-employed.
If laid-off workers who have settled for part-time work or have given up looking for new jobs are included, the unemployment rate rose to 17 percent, the highest on records dating from 1994. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/33135910/ns/business-stocks_and_economy
