Jobless Claims in U.S. Decline to Match Lowest Since 1973

The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits unexpectedly declined last week to match a more than 42-year low, indicating employers are upbeat about an economy that bogged down in the first quarter.

Jobless claims dropped by 13,000 to 253,000 in the week ended April 9, equaling the level in March that was the lowest since November 1973, a report from the Labor Department showed Thursday. The median forecast in a Bloomberg survey called for 270,000. Continuing claims also declined, to the lowest since mid-October.

Yeah except that if you look at the data, record number of manufacturing jobs losses are offset by record number of minimum wage "services" jobs, aka McDonalds.

Jobless claims are going down because people are getting 2-3 jobs just to survive.

Here are the stats in OR... fewer people are on the unemployment rolls.. its true, down to 4.7%. BUT.. the same time those who's unemployment ran out or gave up looking for work is 9.6% Can someone tell me how that translate into a healthy recovery?????

Considering everything this current administration says has been unreliably untrue.. how can one believe this decline is real?

The total working-age population of the U.S. is 204 million. The current total of working-age Americans NOT working is 95 million.

YOU do the math.

Obama's unemployment figures are an obvious lie.

The statistics are probably correct. It's what they're measuring that's off, and they know it.

These numbers are the wool that's pulled over our eyes.

Unemployment stats DO NOT represent the number of unemployed Americans. These numbers represent the weekly filings of unemployment insurance claims. 1 out of 3 Americans are unemployed and that number is growing, not shrinking.

They fail to mention the MILLIONS of workers whose unemployment insurance has long run out and therefore stopped filing.

They fail to mention the MILLIONS of self employed and contractors who don't receive unemployment benefits and therefore don't file for them.

They fail to mention the MILLIONS of recent college graduates who don't qualify for unemployment and therefore don't file.

They fail to mention the MILLIONS of able-bodied welfare hounds that refuse to even try to work and therefore don't file for unemployment.

Instead, they mention a virtually meaningless number and then pat themselves on the back, safe in the knowledge that they've fooled 'We the People' once again.

The real March 2016 unemployment rate is 22.9%.

"The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers."

I gave up... my wife gave up.... we raise her 4 kids on a chunk of land with no grid power or water, the kids attend the local school system, and the wife's ex has called cps on us 2 times, everything was great, we had no issues at all from them.... the kids dad sells used cars in San antonio... he gets summers, christmases, monthly weekends, and we drive them over 400 miles one way to get him his visits. He takes the wife back to court at least 2 times a year to try to win custody because of our off grid lifestyle, and keeps losing....
He tries to convince the kids to stay with him, they are 11 to 16.... they keep wanting to come home...

Point is, we dropped out of the system because the system didn't work for us... all our friends are the same way, at least 6 families in our area....

Bet we are not part of that jobless "statistic"....

 Quoting: Doc Savage


While I agree generally, there are aspects of that number which are misleading. The age group under 35 and over 55 have steadfastly increased which has decreased their group's employment rate. Because of increases in health a portion of 55+ are not disabled, but not necessarily "hireable". Meanwhile a large percentage of under 35 are unemployed for various reasons. This could be laziness, entitlement mentality, or simply just don't feel like its worth looking for a job when they can live with their parents. The US employment heavily relies on 35-55yo group which is increasing in size-- but not the jobs.
