Discussion: Jobless Applications Fall, Pointing Toward Stronger Economy

Discussion for article #226077

For the past three months, the unemployment rate for those 18 to 19 has averaged 18.4%. For those 20 to 24 has averaged 11%. That’s the problem that needs to be fixed.

More proof Bush is better than Obama. Losing 800,000 jobs a month is better than an average gain of 250,000 jobs created a month for the year…ask an left, tea or independent leaning Bagger or ask foolmemore ^…

May the people of this country never live that poll down…EVER.

No matter what, there will always be some spiteful hater that will attempt to find the negative in every good report. That’s the problem that needs to be fixed.

I don’t exactly know why but a stronger, ever improving economy coincides with a stronger, ever more disgusting, backlash.
And it’s mostly from the people who are benefitting the most but also a few nerds.

This isn’t “backlash.” The truth is that one of the reason that the unemployment rate decreases is because of the way it’s calculated. How many people applied for unemployment, and how many filed a weekly claim. Those people who are out of benefits are neither. They’re still out of work; they’re just not counted.
