The people at Cowboy Byte wrote this article to explain to those who just can't understand why people are saying the unemployment rates are going up and not down despite Obama saying the opposite.
It is really simple, the government is just NOT COUNTING ALL THOSE OUT OF WORK!
The government arbitrarily removes people from the unemployment rolls who are not looking for work because they can't find it, the part-time folks who want full time employment, and those who have run out of their 99 weeks of unemployment compensation. In this way, decreasing the denominator of the equation increases the number of people working and therefore reduces the unemployment numbers while the same number of people are working month after month.
No new jobs are created, but through manipulation of numbers and avoidance of counting the true number of people out of work, Obama and his den of liars triumphantly show a lowering of the unemployment figures.
IT IS A CHARADE, A SCAM, SMOKE AND MIRRORS.
"I want to try this unemployment business with numbers, but I must acknowledge that following numbers on the radio is admittedly tough to do. You can’t see them. But I’m gonna give you two examples. Twenty jobs and five people fill them, so 15 of the 20 jobs unfilled. That’s an unemployment rate of 80%. You got a universe here of 20 possible jobs, five of them are filled. That means 20% are working, 80% are not. Now let’s reduce the 20 to 15. There are 15 jobs, that’s what the regime has done, they’ve simply erased, in my example, five jobs. The same number of people, five people working, but now 15 jobs available. That is an unemployment rate of 66%. It has come down from 80%.
