Washington's unemployment rate ticked up slightly in March to 9.1 percent, up a tenth of a percent from February.
That's despite the fact that the state added a seasonally adjusted estimate of 1,100 jobs last month.

Again, the figures do not make sense. Oregon released its UI rate yesterday, and despite losing 2,200 jobs more than last month, their rate went down to 10%. Washington gained jobs and their rate went up. I can't figure out how these numbers are arrived at.

I agree with that for Oregon, but Washington gained jobs, and the rate went up.
Workers reentering the work force that were previously discouraged...Its all BS we know that.
Exactly, its all B.S. just like the election polls, and the moral compasses that our representatives are suppose to have.
