Unemployment numbers didn't include California?!?


CA didn't turn in their numbers

I wasn't one of those conspiracy guys. I looked at the new anemic jobs numbers and thought the answer must be a drop off in the number looking for jobs.

Assuming the story linked was true, it looks like the skeptics might be more correct that I was giving them credit for.

Now I still tend to believe this is just unintentional incompetence rather than deliberate sabotage. Still it shows that the "good" numbers aren't any better at all.

Can't wait for this to be picked up by the mainstream media! /holds breath

Data from the most populous state no included? Complete fabrication. They should have delayed compilation and publication of the data summary until they had gotten the California data. This is bull shite.

Does it matter? U6 (real unemployment) is over 14%.

re: Unemployment numbers didn't include California?!?


"It is likely that some of the jobless claims in one large state -- California -- were not included in the claims reported to the Department of Labor this week.  This happens occasionally, our source says. When a state's jobless claims bureau is short-staffed, sometimes the state does not process all of the claims that came in during the week in time to get them to the DOL. The source believes that this is what happened this week."

"See, we didn't exclude anything. They just didn't get us the data." 

So they're playing semantics. 

"Oh, wait a minute, we resent this accusation that we excluded a state." 

"Well, then what happened?" 

"Well, California just didn't get the data to us."

"Oh!  So you didn't exclude it, you just didn't have it. And yet you put the number out anyway?" 

"Yeah.  They'll report next week, and then we'll fix this later."

Don't act shocked Dean. Your Heavenly Father on Earth, the Lord Obama did it for nearly 2 weeks on Libya.
