I fired up my desktop PC this morning and what did I see? All this exuberance over the latest U.S. employment numbers (146,000 jobs created, 7.7 percent unemployment rate in November).
And then, I head over to the Crain’s Chicago Business website which has this snippet posted on their home page:
Updated 7:54 a.m.
U.S. unemployment rate falls to 4-year low
(AP) — The drop was mainly mostly because more people stopped looking for work and weren’t counted as unemployed. But stock futures jumped after the report.
(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)
“The drop was mainly mostly because more people stopped looking for work and weren’t counted as unemployed.”
Way to piss on the Pollyannas’ parade this morning, Crain’s.
And go up a few notches in my book for telling it like it is.
