So just under a half million MORE people applied for first time unemployment claims last month but your government is trying to tell you unemployment fell nationwide and in Hawaii. Do you trust your government to tell you the truth?

The number of jobs dropped by 6000 from last month. The unemployment rate dropped??? WTF. They should just publish the U6 rate. 18%. 1 in 5 people not really working.

I just lost my job and speaking to those who work at the unemployment office, it does not appear that the rates have dropped.
Just look at how long the lines were at the Waipahu unemployment office. I went there last week and by 11:30 AM, the ticket counter already was re-set after hitting 100.
Government only says it is going down, full of BS, to influence the Stock market, artificially keeping it up so that the politicians and their cronies can "justify" hefty bonuses for themselves and Wall Street crooks. It happens every time at year end...a scam!

WHY does Michigan have the highest unemployment rate? NOT EVERYONE CAN OR WANTS TO DO CARS FOR A LIVING. If you're considering a mainland move, don't go there, whatever you do. It's too frickin' cold anyway.

What hope, what change? Here in Hawaii, any hope that the economy will improve in Hawaii are just wishful thinking! It's been ruined by AJA cronyisum who are over representative of the entire State, held hostage by corrupt Unions, more than 50,000 State bureacrats for a State a little over 1 million!

Then to matters worse, the pending financial and tax doom of that corrupt City of Honolulu obsolete technological Rail, estimated to cost over $7.3 billion dollars, that's over 7 times the ENTIRE State of Hawaii population! But to actually burden every taxpayer an additional $4000.00 of taxes each year for over 20 years to pay for that crook mayor Mufi Hannelman and his cronies Rail!

Better to be one of those Freeloaders from Micronesia, getting food stamps, secton 8 housing and free medical/dental benefits for not even working one hour in Hawaii!

It could be worse. We could be "going rogue" instead.
