Where are the jobs in Connecticut? For that matter in our country? How is 8% unemployment looked at as being an improvement in 2012 for our state? What about the number of workers who are out of unemployment benefits and given up looking for work and are no longer counted? Thus we may actually have an unemployment rate of 15 to 17% rather than a published 8% rate. But then again economic figures are normally manipulated by governmental officials to their benefit and for political gain.
Sort of like what we will see in Monday's report on jobs. Or then again the lack of jobs and economic growth which still plagues our state. But who is worried about that? We will just keep taxing the remaining businesses in our state with one of the highest unemployment taxes in the country, coupled with all of the other high taxes in the state. And then we will again ask, where are the jobs in 2012?
