The Fraudulent Unemployment Rate
The truth is that the Obama Administration has been reducing the labor pool numbers for two years now in what is an obvious effort to give the appearance of a jobs recovery. Most media outlets will not report it, Americans won't pick up on it and Obama will pretend that his prescriptions are working well. However, the reduction in the labor force is completely arbitrary based on what the Administration supposedly believes is a reduction for whatever reason. If they had not done this, the true unemployment rate would be a not-so-rosy 11.5% (with underemployment still much higher in the 16-17% range).
Once again, Obama is trying to fool the electorate in advance of next year's election. Will it work?
