Which of the following statements would come from someone classified as unemployed?
A. I'm not working. I had three interviews this week, and I'm trying to find a job.
B. I haven't had a job in a year, and I stopped looking for a job nine months ago.
C. I'm not working because I'm going to Jamaica with my buddy.
D. I'm a full-time student at the University of Illinois and don't have time to work.
E. I can't stand my current job as a telemarketer. I used to be a nuclear engineer.
The first four statements could come from a person who's unemployed in the sense of not having a paying job. However, only one statement could be made by an officially unemployed person. Check this site for your answer.
