The Numbers….it’s all about the Numbers….
By: Rebecca Figone
A really great blog from, Tom Blumer at NewsBusters.org, discusses the employments numbers, and the failure of the disclosure of those who improved, when disclosure of unemployment came out recently.
Here is what Tom tells us:
“In his Friday report covering the June state and local employment report released by Uncle Sam’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Associated Press’s Derek Kravitz told readers about the three biggest seasonally adjusted job-losing states (Tennessee, Missouri, and Virginia), but had nothing to say about states which gained jobs. This was a curious omission indeed, given that BLS told us that “nonfarm payroll employment increased in 26 states and the District of Columbia and decreased in 24 states.”
Only Kravitz knows why he neglected to tell us about the job gainers, but the list of the top eight states in that department should make readers wonder if the wire service reporter’s omission was motivated by inconvenient (for liberals and leftists) likely explanations for the improvements in most of them (keep in mind that though it’s not an apples to apples comparison, the economy as a whole added only 18,000 seasonally adjusted jobs in June):

From what I could glean by reading this report, Texas, California, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin and South Carolina have all seen growth in employment over the most recent month. It seems the numbers are down to the extent that pointing out this growth in these specific areas seemed a waste of time to AP, from what the information tells us.
The jobs sector has not looked good for a while, but some places, are apparently fairing better than others. The private sector is where the solution lies to fix our employment problems now, yet we need for government to get out the way with over regulation and overt red tape.
