The Labor Force Participation Rate Continues Its Decline

Even though the unemployment rate continues a gradual improvement, the labor force participation rate has been steadily declining since 2007. This means that a much of the decrease in unemployment comes from people who are no longer looking for work and thus are no longer part of the labor force. This is hugely problematic and continues to worsen.
