Many people did not apply for unemployment. This is why the numbers are lower. They have quit looking for jobs that do not exist. numbers are much higher!

Lenny you are right on with your comment. ESC only counts those signed up, looking for work and drawing unemployment. The countless thousands whose benefits have expired, have no hope for a job and are in our communities are not counted. Realistically for CALDWELL county our rate is likely over 25 per cent.
It is to the shame of our federal government and the wall street elite that decent jobs were allowed to be sent overseas.
This nation has been dealt a likely death blow. How people can defend this injustice is beyond me, but i can almost bank that someone will write a post taking up for the destroyers of this nation. Unreal.
