    That was your headline. Now what is the truth?

    "Just as with last month, we are experiencing an expected, seasonal increase in the labor force," said Surtees. "People looking for summer work as well as teachers and education employees who are not working over the summer are entering the job market. Since the unemployment rate is simply the percentage of people in the labor force who are not working, this increase will inevitably raise the unemployment rate."

    Although the unemployment rate did increase, unemployment claims continue to fall. Initial unemployment compensation claims are down by 20% from a year ago, and the amount paid in claims is down by 21.5%.

    Alabama's online jobs database, www.joblink.alabama.gov, is consistently registering more jobs than at any time in the site's history, even eclipsing the spikes created by temporary jobs following the Gulf Oil Spill in 2010 and the April 2011 tornadoes. In June, JobLink saw a record breaking 15,690 jobs available.

    Alabama's unemployment rate up slightly from June

    You cannot be trusted.

    Um, Bama -- every state has seasonal variation.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Unemployment compensation claims are down by 20% from one year ago.

    And....almost 16k new jobs were posted in June. We have another car company opening shop here. Things are looking up.
