Where are the "people hired" numbers?

So every week, we get a number from the Government, as to how many people claimed unemployment for the first time. (what about the second time? Will save that for a future post.)

This number is currently approaching 500,000 every week.

If you assume the population of the U.S. Is 300,000,000.
It would take roughly 11.5 years for Every citizen of the United States, to be unemployed.

Obviously this is offset by those that are hired on a weekly basis.

Everytime an American Citizen is hired, they have to fill out their tax forms, and present their social security number, so the company that hired them, can then turn that information over to the Government.

Why are we only presented with a weekly unemployment rate, and not a weekly "hired" rate?

Is the offset so bad, they just hope we don't ask?

I personally want to know what the offset is.

For those that know. How do I find these numbers?

Nah, same post. What about the people who are claiming unemployment for the second, or third time? Why are they not incorporated into this weekly report?

Simple, you cant move a political agenda with wildly changing numbers. Its all about the shock and awe against the public. Besides, you cant lose your job one day and claim unemployment the next. There is a window. In this window, a person actively looking for a job might find one a few days or weeks later so they are only in the system for a very short time before going back to work. They get into a static even though it is not accurate by the time it is actually released. But big numbers are great for a political agenda hellbent on taxation and government domination.

Just political? Or "saving us from the truth, to avoid mass panic?"
