The state’s unemployment rate has fallen from 8.0 to 7.9. A whopping .1% shift. And because of this, they’re reducing the unemployment thing I’m currently on. I’m being dropped 3 weeks earlier than I was originally going to be, simply because a handful of people found jobs. The best part is that the unemployment rate will be falling again. When the kick me, and god knows how many other people off it, the rate will go down. If we aren’t filing for it, then we aren’t counted.
Sounds to me like a massively stupid plan to reduce the unemployment rate, and screw poor bastards like me who can’t find work.
