    Nope, It wasn't Sandy

    That spike in unemployment applications?
    From the Department of Labor press release this morning:
    In the week ending November 10, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 439,000, an increase of 78,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 361,000. The 4-week moving average was 383,750, an increase of 11,750 from the previous week's revised average of 372,000.
    Some of the new claims, especially in New Jersey, were due to Hurricane Sandy--but these were offset by a decline in claims filed in New York. The highest numbers of new filings came from Pennsylvania and Ohio, where there were thousands of layoffs in the construction, manufacturing, and automobile industries.

    Yup, it was Hurricane Barry.

    viewed this morning, was going to make a sarcastic comment but you know this is really unfortunate.. due to increased government regulations over the past few years thousands have lost jobs in PA/OH from the Coal Industries in which $millions have been invested in Clean Coal and Clean Coal Technology. coal is abundant, through technological investment it's cleaner to utilize, but it's on the Admin's hit-list. The coal industry of course is just a microcosm of the overall economic calamity that is in store if we do not change course. There are consequences for failed policies, but one would hope the failure can be learned from.. not seeing that at present.. thanks for sharing.
