WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration on Thursday invited states to try out new unemployment insurance schemes that would allow businesses to take on new workers with states paying their wages.

Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said during the conference call that states could design programs in which participating workers, not businesses, receive unemployment dollars, so long as the benefit amount equals or exceeds the state's minimum wage.

Solis said the Labor Department is accepting state applications now and will take 30 days to review them. The law requires states to submit a plan to perform detailed evaluations of the success of their programs.

Seems to me something is not adding up. I mean we keep being told that unemployment is improving... and all i think has improved is that the rate of letting people go has decreased. So many are no longer being counted, may have given up looking for work, have gone to school, the list goes on.. and let us not forget the "massaging" of the numbers that is done by the statistics. Percents are meaningless... people count... percents are just stats.

I think things are much worse than we know. This seems desperate measure to use unemployment to cover wages to create jobs. What happens when the unemployment runs out? Also, most have already depleted their unemployment.

I just landed a job...

But what I am seeing is so scary... I hold all those unemployed and underemployed in prayers...
