I gotta call bulls**t on this one.. Unemployment did not drop but rather people exhausted their benefits and others have gave up looking for a job..this don't even count the under employed, which are working for way less than they use to make just trying to make ends meet.. These numbers are nothing but politicians doing math trying to see how d**n stupid the public really is..

I guess this is the politicians way of saying out of sight , out of mind.. Next we will hear the politicians talking about all the jobs they worked hard to bring to the area.. My a$$.. They may have been a few jobs created here but it's jobs paying $8.00 per hour that once paid $20.00 per hour.. Being underemployed is just as bad sometimes as being unemployed..

I agree we should. That's a million per employee they currently employee. I mean the city and county have given and given to them for a hundred years only to watch them walk away so why not lol.

Come to think of it I might hire a mexican to do yard work for about 20 hours a week. I wonder if I can get a million from the powers that be for creating a job.
