So, job figures are up??

Depends how you spin the numbers …

From the Bureau of Labor Statistics – Update
8:30 a.m. (EST) Friday, February 1, 2013

“The number of unemployed persons, at 12.3 million, was little changed in January.”

In January, 2.4 million persons were marginally attached to the labor force, down by 366,000 from a year earlier. (The data are not seasonally adjusted.) These individuals were not in the labor force, wanted and were available for work, and had looked for a job sometime in the prior 12 months. They were not counted as unemployed because they had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey.”

“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 157,000 in January.”


That’s right, 19.5% of the unemployed weren’t considered

So, with a significant number of Unemployed simply NOT taken into account, the bureau, the government and Main Stream Media can make claims that the nation added 157,000 jobs in January …

All of this on the backside of the report that the US GDP actually Shrunk by 0.1% in the 4th qtr …

As well as a 0.3% shrink in the UK:

Main stream propaganda media is working overtime trying to keep everyone from seeing the big picture. There is a ton of bullshit behind those pearly white smiles on your television. Turn it off and research for yourself.
