The US added 146,000 jobs in November, official data shows, as the economy seemingly shrugged off storm Sandy.
The unexpectedly strong performance brought the unemployment rate down to a four-year low of 7.7% of the workforce.THAT TURNS OUT TO BE A LIE, BUT YOU HAVE TO READ ON TO FIGURE THAT OUT: 24th paragraph - (third from last):
Statistics suggest that much of the decline in the unemployment rate since 2008 has been due to people dropping out of the workforce, either due to retirement or because they have given up seeking work.UNEMPLOYMENT WENT DOWN BECAUSE PEOPLE WITHDREW FROM THE JOB MARKET. 350,000 IN FACT, MORE THAN TWICE THE NUMBER WHO SUPPOSEDLY GOT JOBS.
IOW: THE US ECONOMY IS SLIPPING INTO A RECESSION.
AND MEDIA LIES WON'T STOP IT.
