Default 8.3% Unemployment Lie

8.3% Unemployment Lie



Quote:
The most recent unemployment number is a total lie, and that lie was repeated all over the mainstream media (MSM). Two sins were committed here, and I don’t know which one is worse. The report was a sham, and the MSM reported that information without a single question about its accuracy.

Now you only get 20 wks in Michigan and since our unemployment rate dropped to 9.3 pct. you are no longer eligible for some extensions. No wonder the rate is going down.
