I have noticed recently that the usual monthly Labor Statistics reports are devoid of the number of those claiming unemployment compensation. There were millions of manufacturing jobs lost to foreign countries and extensions of the limits on unemployment compensation made the news as the government kept extending the time one could collect. Now we seem to hear nothing. Are the payments still ongoing despite the limits? It would certainly account for the continued deficit as the welfare state continues to grow. It would also account for the lack of an uproar from those whose payments were stopped.
