MA loses 20,900 jobs.. and the unemployment rate drops?

(That’s because less people are looking.  A very valid point.   – promoted by Rob “EaBo Clipper” Eno)

You want to talk about someone who can’t do math. Look at the Patrick Administration.

Election years do funny things to bean counters….

Only in Massachusetts would the The Executive Office of Labor & Workforce Development release such a statement.

The Executive Office of Labor & Workforce Development reported this morning that the total unemployment rate fell to 8.4 percent in September, down from 8.8 percent in August – the steepest drop in the rate since January 1976.

BUT

Preliminary September job estimates show 3,175,900 jobs in Massachusetts, a decrease of 20,900 jobs.

And they got August wrong too.

The September job losses follow revised August numbers. Instead of a 2,100 job gain, the state lost 3,000 jobs in August.
