Headline to an article in today’s bird cage liner: More people working in Central Illinois . . .
Evidently math is NOT required for journalists, sorry, people who call themselves journalists. Maybe they just typed in the wrong numbers. We are all used to their “Corrections” page.
Here’s their report:
91,533 people are working now out of 96,789
92,696 people are working now out of 99,312
I think a second grader can tell that last years total working is bigger than this year’s number! Intent to deceive?
It will be even less soon when the people laid off from Country Financial hit the unemployment roles.
I love when leftist refuse to face reality and blame the decrease of people looking for work on retirements. Of course nobody else ever enters the workforce, State Farm isn’t transferring people out, and the population of Illinois isn’t decreasing due to people fed up with this state’s destructive policies.
I don’t blame you Pantagraph, admitting you and your leftisits are failures is tough.
Give it a shot.
Another hint: Fewer people looking for work because they left Illinois WILL make the unemployment rate look better! It doesn’t mean jobs are available.
