Unemployment numbers skewed
When you have exhausted your unemployment benefits, be sure that you keep certifying every two weeks. Once you stop certifying, you stop adding your number to those who are unemployed. I suggest that everyone, whether they have money to receive, certify that you are still unemployed. We keep hearing about those who just stopped looking. People don’t stop looking for work, they just stop filing government paper.
If you are unemployed, you are not counted unless you are certifying that you are eligible to receive unemployment benefits! Having someone say that you stopped looking for work because you don’t show up on a report is like saying the jobs sent overseas that Americans won’t do were turned down by you and your family!
Certify, and demand to be counted!
