How does the Government Classify an Unemployed Worker?

MACRO-MOMJGL

Suppose Allan was just laid off from his job at a major manufacturing plant because it has been shut down for retooling. Allan is very confident he will be called back to work when the operations resume. It is very unlikely he would be able to find a job in the meantime but he has sent his resume to various temporary work agencies and is available to work.

Which of the following categories correctly characterizes the employment status of Allan?

A

He is a discouraged worker so he is not included in the labor force.

B

He is considered an employed worker and included in the labor force.

C

He is considered an unemployed worker and included in the labor force.

D

He is not unemployed or part of the labor force.
