Nah, they will just adjust it up next week. They can't get anything correct.

409,000 is nothing to be proud of, really. Next week the jobs report for the month comes out, we shall see what happens then.
They will blame the higher numbers on Irene and earthquake. They luck out every month with something to blame it on.MaryKay wrote:409,000 is nothing to be proud of, really. Next week the jobs report for the month comes out, we shall see what happens then.
Must be 375K or less for several consecutive months in order to indicate a REAL job recovery. Summer jobs are coming to an end also, but I suppose that will simply be "seasonally adjusted" when they begin filing.
