No need to hold back the real numbers now that the election is over.
:: The number of initial claims in the week ending Nov. 17 fell 41,000 to 410,000. ::
No. No, they didn’t.
:: Claims in the previous week were revised to an increase of 90,000 to 451,000 ::
Which means this weeks “real” number is 420,000.
That old 70’s adage...
“I used to be thoroughly disgusted... now I’m merely amused.” Never more appropos.
“remained elevated due to Hurricane Sandy”
They list 11 states with an INCREASE of more than 1,000 claims....one of these being California, with an INCREASE of 24,000 claims.
Sandy is just an excuse.
If jobless claims fell 41,000 to 410,000, that means last week’s jobless claims were ADJUSTED UPWARDS to 451,000. It was reported to be 439,000 last Thursday ( and the headlines claim that Hurricane Sandy was the main factor ).
Since tracking these weekly first time jobless claims numbers after Obama started his first term in 2009, I have yet to see one weekly jobless claim revised DOWNWARDS.
the game is so transparent
increase last week’s claims so this weeks claims are a “decrease”
whoevers nepotistic AssPress hire has the job of writing this drivel should get a job with some real pride, like delivering pizza
So what’s the almighty per cent age rate of unemployment these days? We got the fantastic news of 7.8% conveniently in time for the election but now the BOL seems VERY quiet abt that....very little trumpeting of the rate now.
Could it be The One was re-elected?
If the claims fell, it can probably be traced to those whose 99 weeks are over, and they went on disability.
Obama’s second-4 is going get even more weird than the first.
There is still a massive backlog of those trying to file for the first time. Democrap governors did their best to hinder those trying to apply. Colorado is estimated to still have over 50,000 first time applicants that can’t seem to get approved. Usually 30,000 are on unemployment, but, thanks to Obama and the Democraps, there are over 200,000 now, not including that estimated 50,000 still trying to get approved.
I like to put things in perspective for the liberals who can't seem to grasp what that number really represents.
Jobless claims will increase by at least 18,000 next month.
Notice that the average now after the election is OVER 400,000 new unemployed per week AND that before the election it the average was around 350,000, almost 100,000 more average now that the election is over. This is just more fraud on top of the voter fraud. this is a communist dictatorship fake elections, fraud from government (well what government is accountable or honest or efficient anyway NONE as socialism doesn’t work).
fall...rise, who cares now?
I could have sworn there were 100,000+ layoffs around the country the day after the election.
All those people found other jobs? Or have they just not filed yet?
Is Sandy going to be blamed for everything for the next 4 years? Sandy, the new GW Bush for the Obama regime.
how many were added to disability?
I’m confused. I thought the claims were averaging 350k???
And last week's unemployment rate has been adjusted upwards by 12,000 compared to the estimate, to make this week's decline in unemployment seem even bigger!
(Did these numbnuts not notice that the level *had been* about 330,000, before the election?)
Oh well, as the sluts who voted for Obaama all agree: "Math class is tough!"
What happens to the numbers when ALL of the people who can’t find jobs don’t - and give up for good? Do we go to 0% unemployment, then?
Such mind-boggling CR@P. I loathe our Congress and current _Resident.
