One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.


"The number of Americans filing for initial unemployment insurance surged to just below the 500,000 level last week, and have climbed more than 12% over the past two weeks, the government said Thursday."

"There were 496,000 initial job claims filed in the week ended Feb. 20, up 22,000 from a revised 474,000 the previous week, the Labor Department said in a weekly report. The prior week, there were 442,000 claims filed." (CNN Money Article)

There are a LOT of people whose unemployment benefits have run out, who didn't find work and who are no longer counted.

I know that the government has no real interest in finding a way of counting them - or counting the self employed people who were never counted, but the results would be statistically significant.
