Job numbers

Are they false numbers derived from a furlough department?

We are going to a banana REPUBLIC each day with this MORON in the white house!

1. They're likely inflated due to the massive amount of temp workers hired for the holiday season.

The numbers aren't incorrect, but they're misleading. They'll be back to normal next month.

2. Thanks for reminding me of the influence of the holidays on the numbers.

I still can't help but think that there's a fair amount of fuzzy math potentially happening with the current state of affairs. Who's really crunching the numbers? Are they just throwing things at the white board and calculating them where they fall? (J/K) I don't trust anything that comes from our government anymore. Congratulations on the erosion of trust, Republican party. It sucks having a liar, idiot in the people's house.
