    Construction activity was hit particularly hard by the storms, but many restaurants and stores also had to close, putting the brakes on hiring plans and temporarily throwing some employees out of work.

    This is transparent bullshit at it's best!
    Does the administration really think we are THAT stupid to believe this? I guess so.

    apparently someone in the administration realized that the continuing use of the words "unexpectedly high" in front of the phrase "unemployment numbers" was starting to get a little shopworn, so they decided to blame it on the weather.

    gotta give em points for trying.:lol:

    Snow melts.
    Destruction from a hurricane takes a lot longer to recover from.
    I don't have stats, but I would imagine that jobs were created down in the New Orleans area. Clean-up and construction.

    This thread wasn't any smarter when it was posted elsewhere yesterday.

    Even Foxbusiness reported the facts of the matter:

    Sarcasm noted.

    I guess we all can't be on every board every minute of every day reading every thread.
    Thanks.
