Letter: Economy looking up

So, 1,130 people in our community will no longer be drawing unemployment benefits. That is a plus for the government stats. Actually, because they are not drawing the benefits any longer, they must be employed. Therefore the record shows that the percentage has dropped. Isn't that wonderful?

There is an old saying: figures don't lie, but liars can figure.
