Real Clear Politics: Census Worker Claims Job Numbers Are Being Inflated
As if it’s not bad enough that more than 90% of the jobs created this month are outside the private sector, it looks like even the public-sector jobs might not be real:
“What they do is hire you, they train you like a few weeks — 35, 40 hours of training and give you six hours of productive work and lay you off.” a former Census named “Maria” tells FOX News. “Maria” further explains they rehire you so it counts as a new job.
It would have been bad enough because the census jobs are just seasonal (I worked one of those back in 2000), but now we’re counting public sector, seasonal jobs that never even existed. I didn’t know you could get much lower than “saved or created”, but the Obama administration found a way.
