Unemployment benefits bill finally passes the Senate
But let's look at the unemployment bill, because it shows how many people lost or exhausted their benefits in September. And if you lost your benefit in September, you then weren't counted on the Unemployment rolls.
September we had 402,751 people fall off of the unemployment rolls. Wouldn't then it be fair to add these folks to those unemployed?
We were told that 7,000 people were falling off the unemployment rolls each day. Doesn't September have 30 days? Wouldn't that then equal 210,000 people who had fallen off the rolls--and not the actual number of 402,751?
In the same chart, they have the number of the people that would fall off of the rolls by the end of the year. In the next three months, 1,331,176 people were going to fall off of the roles. That's 443,725 people a month.
It looks like a significant source of the improvement in the slowdown of the unemployment rate, is just the unemployed falling off of the rolls.
And not being counted.
Because when it comes to the unemployed, they don't seem to care about the disenfranchised.
Because they muddy the Government's phony stasitics!
