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?
