The U.S Labor Bureau needs to come to my state and look at the lines at the unemployment office and welfare office. These number are obviously doctored and grossly at that. The people i talk to in other states say that people are losing jobs daily. More people are going of SSDI and just flat not looking any more because there aren't any companies hiring. In reality when i first saw these numbers I immediately did some research and found the real jobless number t be nearing 17% by the NON-FIXED way of counting the employment rate. You must factor in all forms of work to include farming, ranching etc. when this is done in the format created back in the 40's and only changed to fit political needs as of 2011.
