What I meant was, more people will almost always means less employment, especially when you're already in a high unemployment situation. Granted, unemployment is hard to measure, and luckily, somebody gave me a good definition this week, which is "only people looking for work", this weeds out people who are unemployed or retired by choice.
I don't doubt life goes on, just tell that to my unemployed neighbors. And I definitely am not the kind of person who will say unemployment is bad per se (see above). But I find it interesting people always deny it as fast as they can, meaning they most likely accepted the premise that unemployment is poverty.
