Someone at work asked me to look into this and I've hit a wall, so I figured I'd ask g+ as a collection of people who know a whole lot... 

Does anyone have any good sources for a dollar figure of the economic impact of someone going from unemployment to employment? 
I've read about Okun's Law and the "production possibility frontier", social consequences, etc. but all of those are pretty global. I'm just trying to find out how working translates money wise- into making someone a contributing member of our economy. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I once read that Asimov lamented that he was unable to predict that there were many rings around Saturn and not just the three that they knew about when he wrote some of his earlier fiction. He believed that it was the job of the science fiction writer to guess that we will discover this at some point. Start Trek writers are probably feeling some of that lament now.

I did some probing:
In 2010, a individual with a gun and a drunk driver had about the same likelihood of killing another person. Firearm Homicides: 11,078/80,000,000 gun owners= .014%
Alcohol driving Fatalities (not the driver): 3,601/ 24,000,000 drunk drivers = .015% (all numbers come from the CDC, FBI, Dept. of Health and Human Services, or the NRA)

There is far too much regulation on alcohol.

Hi everyone, I am a recent Ph.D. in I/O. Having been in school for the past 30 years or so, I've grown used to having my attention directed to new and exciting research and discussing psych in an open and encouraging environment with a group of very well educated peers. I'm looking forward to some interesting times!

Aha! I know what Org Psych is - there is a lot of it around these days! The only thing I thought of was "Input/Output", which I guess is what most of psychology is about  [in a human sense], but I was thinking computing! What was the PhD about?

true word
 
Quant Quotes  Some words of wisdom from quantitatively minded people:

“There are 2 possible outcomes: If the result confirms the hypothesis, then you've made a measurement. If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then you've made a discovery.”
--Enrico Fermi 

"Remember that all models are wrong; the practical question is how wrong do they have to be to not be useful."
--George Box & Norman Draper

"Everything is related to everything else, but near things are more related than distant things."
--  Waldo Tobler

"Luck is probability taken personally."  
-- Chip Denman

“With a large enough sample, any outrageous thing is likely to happen."
--Persi Diaconis and Frederick Mosteller

"There’s always a default. Choose your default, or your default will choose you."
--Andrew Gelman

"Visualization can surprise you, but it doesn’t scale well. Modelling scales well, but it can’t surprise you."
--Hadley Wickham

"He who refuses to do arithmetic is doomed to talk nonsense."
--John McCarthy 

"I had the most remarkable experience this evening. While coming in here I saw license plate ANZ 912. Calculate for me, please, the odds that of all the license plates in the state of Washington I should happen to see ANZ 912."
--Richard Feynman

"Mathematical conventions are just that, conventions. They differ by field of mathematics. Don't ask us why matrix rows are numbered down but graphs are numbered up the y axis, nor why x comes before y but row before column. But the matrix layout has always seemed illogical to me." 
-- Brian D. Ripley (answering a question why print(x) and image(x) are layout'ed differently)

"At the heart of quantitative reasoning is a single question: Compared to what?"
--Edward Tufte
