    For WE, Jobs number for Feb and Mar Revised UP!

    See it does go both ways!

    | According to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy added 115,000 jobs in April, well below expectations, while the unemployment rate fell slightly to 8.1 percent. The private sector added 130,000 jobs while the public sector shrunk. February’s total was revised up 19,000 jobs; March’s total was revised up 34,000. The broader U-6 measure of unemployment remained steady at 14.5 percent.

    Unfortunately, the revised numbers still don't cover the new people entering the workforce looking for jobs.

    Perhaps, but it comes a lot closer than losing 700k a month.

    So up in March an additional 34K, and now in April only 115K, just proves there is a bigger decline from March to Apr. More proof that jobs are not happening... and are declining at a faster rate...

    Next month, U6 will go up because underemployment will increase AGAIN... after all they added another 552K to that number...you must be so proud of sticking with a loser....
