    100,000 still-unemployed fall off the far end of the unemployment conveyor belt

    OK, let me get this straight.

    100,000 still-unemployed reportedly fall off the far end of the unemployment conveyor belt, causing the unemployment roll to shrink a little bit ... AND THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD NEWS?

    • you are so right, changed rules, use to count for 2 years no more worse summer jobs for students have been taken by many unemployed skewed report is not good yardstick good lck with bets

    • I agree. This 100K or whatever the precise number are still unemployed, just aren't collecting the standard unemployment anymore. If one looks at the numbers collecting the extended unemployment Govt added, it went up by these type of numbers. US is in for more suffering. The stock market is totally out of wack.

      however, people like you and me can not play the market with logic, just need to be on the right side of the trade, even when it defies logic.
