Local Jobless Picture Brighter Than One Year Ago

Local Jobless Picture Brighter Than One Year Ago

Potter County Today
joblessArea jobless rates continue to decline.  Potter County’s unemployment rate fell from 7.1 in May to 6.7 percent in June. A year ago, the June rate was 9.4 percent. Labor analysts point out that the jobless rates are seasonally adjusted and require a number of qualifiers. 

For instance, they do not include a substantial number of people whose unemployment compensation benefits ran out, nor those working part-time and/or working off the books. 

The state reported that, in rounded numbers, 10 Potter County residents exhausted their unemployment benefits in June, and an estimated 20 in July. Another 10 each are expected to lose their benefits in August and September.

It's going down because a lot of peoples unemployment is running out. Then they're forced to get a crappy $9.00 hr job and make half of what they were on unemployment.

Poster # 1 The obumma admin. has quit counting aproxx. 50 % of the people out of work to make the numbers look good ! Just look at the people getting government handouts but they don't want to talk about those numbers! And oh ya i forgot it's all Bush's fault!

Like wise as posted the % has gone down because there are a lot of people that exhausted their unemployment and there is no tiers available to them so there for they no longer show as unemployed.

You're "leader" orange face boehner has already admitted most of the problems the economy and immigration is facing is caused by the Bush administration so go spread your propaganda elsewhere.

There are now over 92 MILLION people who are no longer counted as being "unemployed" because their benefits ran out and they haven't looked fir work in over 4 weeks. There are 11 MILLION more people no longer counted today than the day Obama took office.If these people were included as they were in previous years, the TRUE unemployment rate would be between 15 and 20%.
These statistics come directly from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2013/09/not-looking-for-work-why-labor-force-participation-has-fallen-during-the-recession

While they gift Israel with billions of US tax payer dollars a year, they cut off unemployment benefits for American citizens. They give Israel 7 times the aid that they give any other country. Israel's the size of New Jersey. Our infrastructure's falling apart. Veterans are living under bridges without healthcare and Senators are fighting to make poor children work to pay for their free school lunches here in the US. 1 of every 3 Israeli citizens live off of welfare checks. Guess who pays for their welfare? US taxpayers. End US tax payer $$$$ to Israel. We need it here.
