You Can Make This Stuff Up

Another first Friday, another random number from the BLS. +288,000, well over estimates. Except – +234K birth/death adjustment, household survey shows a loss of 73K jobs, and a million people dropped out of the so-called labor force used to calculate the unemployment rate (number of people not in labor force increased by 988K).

And employment/population is still losing ground.

All I can say is, whatever.
