Fakeing it.

One of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the public are the employment figures. If you are to believe Peter Costello 'all is well' in Oz .....the economy is going "gangbusters". Disguised is the fact that those with one hour of employment, per fortnight, are still regarded as employed.

An important figure was released today. This is the the 'underemployment' rate. Shamefully only released once a year, it tells the real tale of the disregarded. A link is provided to a not too lengthy ABC transcript on this matter. It's good to remember these real life people, next time someone tells you that John Howard will be difficult to remove when the economy is booming for all.

See World Today.
