In order to be included in the unemployment stats, you have to be willing and able to work. If you're unemployed but not currently looking for work, you're not included. Also house wives, they aren't included in the stats either.

That site makes it look way worse than it really is.

That's debatable. It is a continuing downward spiral. That means people formerly working are losing their jobs and people that become of age to work are not finding them. If it were minor drops, you would be exactly right and it could be written off as "housewives and non job seekers". But it is far from minor. I'd say the article is pretty accurate, at least more so than what the news media reports.
