Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims slipping to 380,000.

The prior weeks figure was revised up to 385,000 from the previously reported 382,000.

6. Exactly.
No one could have possibly seen this coming. Inflation hasn't been too bad (for a while now)...on everything except food, gas prices, insurance premiums, everything at the grocery store, and electricity bills. You know, the things you can't live without.

The fact that the CPI can claim that inflation hasn't risen sharply in the last few years completely discredits them. Anyone that has been in a grocery store and pays bills knows prices have gone up.

15. Its more than that though. Its the vehament attack and belittlement of anyone
who keeps pointing out the inflation and malignant unemployment/underemployment.

They know best, despite our on the ground observations!

4. So, anytime that "trickle down" thing
wants to kick in, it wouldn't be too soon. I mean, it is why Obama extended the wealthy that huge tax break that seniors are now going to have to pay for, right? To create jobs?

5. State and local budgets are going to drive some of this
There are government layoffs occurring and they will continue to occur for the next year or two. Unless private sector hiring can make up for the decreased public sector jobs, I don't see how the UE rate can be brought down below the magic 8 number.

7. I am starting to get back to the point
where I question any statement from the government about anything.

Reminds me of the 1980s

8. Thyings were looking up in TN...But then a Rethug became Gov...
The state rate was 9.6 percent, up from January's 9.4 percent. Tennessee was also behind the national unemployment rate of 8.9 percent.

But Labor Commissioner Karla Davis said there are positive signs for Tennessee's economy. She pointed out that since February 2010, Tennessee has added 35,000 jobs across a range of industries.

Instead of gaining jobs we are going backward...Excep...Haslem believes in giving his cronies pay raises...God help us...I wish Gov Bredesen had been able to run for a third term....

10. Its so easy Roosevelt proved its easy "JOBS" is the answer
Give people Jobs
they pay taxes they buy things
they have health care sometimes


instead in the Houston Chronicle I see Vietnamese company supplied workers to a US Company
and the court ruled just now 100 million to the Vietnamese workers

they were deemed indentured servants
