    Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment Rate Plummeting

    Gallup Finds U.S. Unemployment Rate Plummeting - Careers Articles

    It will be interesting to see if the unemployment numbers drop even further before the election. If Gallup is correct about this, then it would indicate that we will see an even bigger drop in unemployment.

    How rude. Like it is outside of politics and threats?

    Dateline.. Team Obama threatens to sue Gallop Polling to get them to change their methodology to make Oscumbo look better.. And there are many here who wonder why I call him Oscumbo..

    People are exhausting their unemployment benefits, causing the "unemployment rate" to go down.

    Are you really that STUPID to believe these "statistics"? Are you that DESPERATE to support Obama?

    Seems to me than many that are or have 'exhausted' up to 99 weeks of unemployment, should have found some work to make more than unemployment. But, they'll go on disability instead.

    Here is another part from the Gallup survey.

    The percentage of Americans working part time but wanting full-time work is 9.0% in mid-October, up from 8.6% in September, but still better than 9.4% in October 2011.

    People can take stuff like this and cherry pick it all day to get the result they want.

    Why do you think people exhausting their benefits would make the UE rate go down? How do you think the rate is calculated and what is your source?

    Unemployment benefits are not used to count the unemployed.

    I heard today that they announced the adjustment to the UE numbers and it wasn't
    good.The number of new filings for UE were up the last 2 weeks and up by a lot.
    I heard this on WABC radio.

    And keep in mind they did not count a whole fucking state the last time....
    To be fair it was a small state...No it wasn't it was Fucking California for God's sake.
