What, exactly is the claim that the September unemployment numbers are falsified about, anyway?
So it has been repeatedly stated in threads on this board that the report is somehow false, or misleading in some way. What is behind this claim? Do people really think that the numbers are false? Do they think that the number is only down because of people who have dropped out of the workforce? Are there really people who think Obama can influence the BLS to put out false numbers?
It seems to be the latest Republican talking point.
ETA Here is the link to the Sept report. You can also read past reports and look up stats, even for the "real" unemployment number. They will explain what each number means and who it will include, it is an interesting site. http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm
