LMAO.:) FYI, July comes 3 months in time AFTER APRIL.
And Deborah Murray concludes that more people looking for work caused the unemployment rate to go up? Now why would Deborah make a goofy statement like that? Now, lets see here, Murray is the Economic Development director and higher unemployment makes it look (correctly) like she isn't doing her job. Uhh, excuse me? Could it be that the unemployment rate went up exactly because more people are out of work? Murray isn't that stupid, but she knows that most weak minded Caldwell County republikans are.
Yep. you are definitely the poster child for republikan stupidity
and Murray is your EDC director. Good luck to you. You will be needing luck
Caldwell County’s unemployment rate edged up slightly in May, but by less than in most other counties in the state.
The county’s unemployment rate was 10.3 percent, up from 10 percent in April, the N.C. Department of Commerce reported Tuesday.
Recent signs of economic growth may have actually contributed to the slight rise in the rate, said Deborah Murray, executive director of the Caldwell County Economic Development Commission.
"We have expected our unemployment rate to bump up in the next months because there is more confidence in the economy, so more people are out looking for work," she said.
People who have given up looking for work and whose benefits have expired do not get counted in the unemployment rate, but when they start to look again they do." Imagine that, take away the free lunch and suddenly people are looking for work. Think the Republicans are on to something?
