So, it the unemployment rate up or down?

Answer: Depends who you ask.

The gov’t Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that unemployment has fallen the past couple of months and is now a bit under 9%.

That would be good news … if true.

But, it seems that Gallup begs to differ.

According to Gallup, the unemployment rate has been increasing the past couple of months and is now over 10%.  The underemployment rate has also been increasing and is now almost 20%

So, who to believe – the fox guarding the henhouse or a left-leaning, reasonably objective 3rd party.

Hmmm.
