It’s Friday afternoon, time for unemployment numbers!

The broader U-6 rate — which takes into account part-time workers who want full-time work and lots of discouraged workers who’ve given up looking — stayed unchanged at 14.7%.

Does that make James Pethokoukis and me “jobs truthers”?

How about Jack Welch?

Rick Santelli saw it coming,

How about these economists: Unemployment drop ‘implausible … a statistical quirk’?

Perhaps the unemployment figures are based on a poll.

    The thing that caught my attention was the widespread and automatic doubts about the 7.8% figure. Obama and team have lied so much it is almost automatic that people do not have trust anymore. Anyway it takes 400-500,000 new jobs per month to make a dent in the unemployment problem. 114,000 just won’t cut it.
