in two more weeks the 'revised' figures will be released
delayed first filer unemployment applications is the hidden reason..
the apps are withheld until the newly unemployed get their Food-Stamp awards first...
only after they get a bigger Food-Stamp award will they file for unemployment 'income' which will then reduce the FS monthly award some months after the initial FS benefit was awarded.
i call that smart budget management by the laid-off workers!

Wow great analogy.
I share your beliefs on the matter. I fear that the end result is inevitable and reports such as the one posted in the OP are just meant to be an attempt at persuading the masses of this illusionary improvement in the economy.
Well done my friend
i'm not a fan of Islam but i have to give them kudos for one thing and that's making it forbidden to lend money for interest.

I know plenty of people, working paycheck to paycheck. I also know plenty of people unemployed, and cant claim unemployment benefits anymore.I wonder what the TRUE rate, of unemployment, really is. I wonder how many on ATS are part of that crowd.
