Check out the poll on the lower right section of this page:
people aren’t buying the numbers.
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.
