Of course the BLS statistics are showing better each month (6.7 now) because of all those who have stopped looking for work who are no longer counted by BLS as unemployed but the honest truth (words democrats can handle) is that we're in deep doo doo! What percentage of American workers are...
Just like my state did a couple years back just before the election cycle. Toss everyone you can off unemployment so the numbers will look smaller. Now a million will lose their coverage this weekend from the Fed and I about guarantee in the next few weeks that the Obama admin will be out...
You do remember Who Is On First ?
So how can over 873,000 people come off the unemployment line when there were only a little over 114,000 jobs created?
Luckily I found a transcript of a conversation between two eminent economists discussing this very question!
Here we go, the recent...
U.S. Unadjusted Unemployment Shoots Back Up
Gee what a surprise huh? Shoots back up right after the elect. I am sure the numbers weren't manipulated by the most corrupt administration in the history of the U.S. just prior to the election to give O a little boost huh?
Well folks it looks like the unemployment has started it's assent. New #'s released today show 439,000 first time filers this week and is expected to climb. Although they were only estimating about 340,000 it went way over. Bet the stock market will tank big time today.
Well the numbers are in and the new 8.3 percent unemployment rate proves unemployment continues to rise. "Most people employed people see the unemployment report and view it as a spectator sport. But with a drastically weak GDP report, subtle rising inflation, and high unemployment the clear...
Here you go. A primer on how to interpret Obama’s improving unemployment figures.
Subject: Unemployment Figures
COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.
ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible times. It's 8.3%.
COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?
We've Lost 2.6 Million Jobs But Unemployment is Down?
By Ron Hill
The L.A. Slimes and The Orange County (California) Register both reports a drop in unemployment last week is why the stock market went up.
I just got this off Google:

Actual Jan. 2012...
Early last year, 75 percent were receiving checks. The figure is now 48 percent -- a shift that points to a growing crisis of long-term unemployment. Nearly one-third of America's 14 million unemployed have had no job for a year or more.
The whole story.
Most of the unemployed no longer receive...
One problem with the way the Bureau of labor statistics calculates unemployment numbers is that so many valid unemployed people are missed in their calculations. Let's have a look at reality which stands at over 21% today.
The Real Unemployment Rate: 21.5%
I guess every one heard they didn't go down... Didn't go up, but still........ Didn't go down.
Don't they get this number as defined as "persons 'actively' seeking employment"? How much is it really?
Do you think we'll reach the record in 1982 of almost 11% or are we already there and the O...
What happened to the unemployment rate not going above 8% libturds?
Things are certainly not looking good for America, looks like we're headed for a double dip recession or possibly right into another depression.
Thanks libturds for making sure this car stays in the ditch.
Looks like I might be letting go.
They gave me notice, that I may be on the let go line.
Yea, one of the last one hired, so looks lke one of the first to go.
good thing is they gave me notice and can get the ol'resume ready and out there.
Any one need a senior estimator - project manager for...
Did anyone happen to hear him say that, "Unemployment numbers have skyrocketed in the past 3 months!"
I had to laugh because he himself had just admitted that businessmen and the educated public in general have NO confidence in his ability to fix the mess the Democrats started.
I had to chuckle today when Limbaugh said we no longer will announce the unemployment numbers as a percentage out of work.
Rather than say we have "7% Unemployment", we have "93% of Jobs Saved by Obama".....:)devil
I was just reading that unemployment is up to 6.7%, the highest in the past 15 years. Out of curiosity, I did a little research to find out what it was in Oct of 2006.
Unemployment for that month fell to 4.4%, lowest in the previous 5 yrs
92,00 new jobs were added
148,000 new jobs created in...
