'Marginally attached' workers to labor force growing


You learn a lot of new words looking through a federal Bureau of Labor Statistics report. Along with learning that teenagers are highly unemployed, the recent report describes how "marginally" attached workers to the labor force are faring. Not too well, it turns out.

The national unemployment rate rose to 8.1% in February, and hit blacks and teenagers the worst, according to a recent Bureau of Labor Statistics report.

Over the past 12 months, the unemployment rate has risen by 3.3 percentage points.
