People should NOT be buying the numbers. Do you think I’m saying that they SHOULD be buying them? If so, then we are totally misreading each other.

I’m saying that they’re being manipulated.

They’re being manipulated by “discouraged workers” which artificially decrease the number of unemployed.

They’re also being manipulated by part-time workers which artificially increases the number of employed, and especially if it’s holiday related, and it’s something like a 10-20 hour a week job.

So, if I can say I have a hundred jobs instead of 90 jobs, then I look better. And, if I can say I have 15 unemployed, instead of 25 unemployed, then I look better.

**people aren’t buying the numbers.**


The comments also reflect the poll numbers. People aren’t buying this BS.

POLL.
The unemployment rate fell to 7.8% in September. What’s your take-away?

10%
It’s proof the economy is improving (3865)
22%
It’s temporary, the worst isn’t over (2014)
11%
I don’t trust the numbers (10117) - your vote
