Just when you thought they couldn’t get worse – The labor department may delay Friday’s jobs report
This would be nothing short of a scandal. Obama is asking for your vote but is using the power of the press and government to keep you in the dark about his performance. If the number was good, they would release it early. Odds are better there is a HUGE negative adjustment coming on the heels of last months bogus number.
The U.S. Labor Department on Monday said it hasn’t made a decision yet on whether to delay Friday’s October jobs report, the final reading on the labor market before next week’s federal elections.
A Labor official said the agency will assess the schedule for all its data releases this week when the “weather emergency” is over.
This would likely be an unprecedented move on the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s part and is only more outrageous in the wake of an artificially low jobless claims report released earlier this month that was missing tens of thousands of jobless claims from California, one of the most populous states in the country.
That’s correct, just a few weeks before a presidential election, Obama enjoyed headlines he had not earned claiming that weekly unemployment claims plunged to a four year-low. Except that report was based on wildly incomplete information. Moreover, upon the release of that report, the BLS did not inform the public that the entire state of California was missing.
