Surprise! Jobless Claims Up 78,000 Week After Election; PA, OH Worst Hit
by Joel B. Pollak 15 Nov 2012, 5:36 AM PDT (Breitbart.com)

The Department of Labor has announced that new jobless claims rose by a staggering 78,000 in the first week after the election, reaching a seasonally-adjusted total of 439,000. Over the past year, and in the weeks leading up to the election, jobless claims were said to be declining, dipping as low as 339,000, with the media proclaiming that they had reached the "lowest level in more than four years." Now, suddenly, the news seems far less rosy.

From the Department of Labor press release this morning:

In the week ending November 10, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 439,000, an increase of 78,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 361,000. The 4-week moving average was 383,750, an increase of 11,750 from the previous week's revised average of 372,000.

Some of the new claims, especially in New Jersey, were due to Hurricane Sandy--but these were offset by a decline in claims filed in New York. The highest numbers of new filings came from Pennsylvania and Ohio, where there were thousands of layoffs in the construction, manufacturing, and automobile industries.

I see two possibilities. Either they were playing with the numbers, or this is the beginning of the Obama Depression.

Speaking of job creation...why not cap the PowerBall at a million or so and award tens of thousands of winners ?....I can guarantee one job someone could have...mine.

Nice idea, though, look when the lottery sales pick up--when it reaches about 100 million. Now the states really slobber when that happens, thinking of the tax money. Also, Obama would like that--it puts you in the $250 thousand and above category.
