Employment Number Spin
Every spring, starting in late March going into April employment increases for 5 months. This is do to seasonal jobs. Seasonal jobs are those like landscaping help, outdoor weather related jobs. Working for the local parks district or lawn sprinkler companies. These jobs go away every fall around late September. Sometimes they may last into October and maybe into November if we have a warm fall.
This always scews the employment numbers. Giving good reviews in the spring and bad numbers just before elections. It is a factor that is said not to be included into the federal labor reports. This is a lie. As we look at the numbers released today it is obvious they are once again included.
If there was a real increase in employing and a creation of jobs then why are we holding a 9.7 unemployed number nation wide? As people are dropped from the rolls to no longer be counted as unemployed, and the government is hiring more we should see the unemployment numbers go down. Say to 7. Yet we are holding steady. This tells the average person that jobs are still being lost at an alarming rate.
The real numbers will come out this fall and the truth of unemployment will be seen. Those hired as census workers will be out of work again and so will seasonal laborers. This does not look good for Obama and the Democrats who are touting good news.
