I’ll be sure to tell my two recently unemployed friends the good news!
Labor force participation at a thirty five year low.
And the BLS was just complaining about how they wouldn’t have enough time and resources to pull together the numbers for the end of this calendar year because of the mean old Republicans and their Obamacare and CR maneuvering....
Jeez...I guess they just gave themselves the old ‘reacharound’ and pulled another stellar concoction just the same...
Way to go traitors...
It’s all those obamacare navigators the goverment hired.
Companies will have to hire more since none will be working more than 29 hours per week..
It’s always unexpectedly. They really don’t know what the hell they are talking about.
In any event, the numbers are invalid. Because the number of working-age adults is always changing. Because those who claim unemployment this week won’t claim it next week. (cumulative)
Because the ‘baby boomers’ are moving in huge numbers into retirement, and social security.
Good numbers make sense. Numbers concocted for the public are useless.
And the national debt has remained unchanged for months now.
CA still has not fixed the computers
Falsified numbers intended to be reported by the media. They will be revised upward quietly in a couple of weeks.
The latest bovine excretion from the Ministry of Propaganda.
They’ve abandoned even the pretense of a desire for accuracy. Make this crap up and see if anyone has the stones to kick over the house of cards. None of the big players do. They are going to ride lies and funny money to the end of the game.
But they are not going off the cliff like the rest of us.
I wonder if TAXifornia”s total FUBAR of the unemployment system had anything to do with this drop. For over a month now they have been “unable” to make payments to unemployed workers do to a “software Upgrade issue”. At the same time it has become impossible for anyone to speak with a representative on the phone, hours cut to 8am to 12 noon. A friend just tried to file online and got the message he needed to call the UI office. This is a neat trick when if you call at 7:59:59 am you immediately get the message that due to the high number of calls being experienced you need to call back at another time. Great way for a state to save money and lower unemployment claim numbers. Dems covering for Dems.
