``The OECD pegs the French labor force at 28.6 million. So we divide those registered as unemployed who don't even have a part-time job (Categories A, D, and E), a total 4.075 million people, by the labor force of 28.6 million people. It produces an unemployment rate of 14.2%. And using the broadest measure of unemployment, which includes the involuntary part-timers, the unemployment rate skyrockets to 19.9%. This is why these rates are not published. They're too terrible. ''
