Feb. 19. The government numbers and press releases sound good. The “Unemployment Rate” slowly but steadily has been going down, now to just 6.6%. So everything should be hunky-dory, right? Funny thing though the public thinks unemployment is the most important problem facing the country today. That’s the finding of the Gallop poll taken earlier in February.
The lack of jobs was thought to be the #1 worry by 23% with another 20% saying problems with the economy was #2. Lack of confidence in government leaders was #3.
Gee, does the average person know something the politicians don’t?
