RANT: Fooling with the employment numbers

New York Post is running a story in today’s paper that state and local D’s are putting poll workers on the payroll with tax documents to make the unemployment rate look better than it is. Poll workers are “employed” for a training day, primary day, and election day. Then, “unemployed”. Some boost to employment numbers. But may fool the press and public enough to keep thm from voting everyone out.
