Shock: Unemployment 15% Higher In 30 Days


Gallup: Unemployment Rate Jumps from 7.7% to 8.9% In 30 Days…
That’s a 15% jump in just 30 days!

Folks… the spiral is tightening…

I just read on that Gallup is showing a sizable 30 day jump in the unemployment rate, from 7.7% on July 21 to 8.9% today.

What makes this interesting (alarming?) is that outside of the federal government’s Bureau of Labor statistics (the gov’t numbers), the Gallup polling organization, who also tracks the nation’s unemployment rate,… the trends between them have almost always aligned. However…

Gallup’s upward trend to almost 9% in just the last three weeks is alarming, especially because this is not a poll with a history of wild swings due to statistical anomalies. Gallup’s sample size is a massive 30,000 adults and the rolling average is taken over a full 30 day period.

Gallup also shows an alarming increase in the number of underemployed (those with some work seeking more). During the same 30-day period, that number has jumped from 17.1% to 17.9%.


The powers-that-be cannot contain their data fudging much longer. The cracks are appearing for all to see, and it’s probably going to get worse.

John Williams over at has been tracking “real” numbers for years…
While the government continues to change how they measure statistics (in their favor), John has been illustrating what the numbers would be today if they measured it like they used to years ago.

For example, the “real” unemployment rate today is closer to 24%. We’re talking Great Depression statistics here. We just don’t see it because of all the EBT cards which eliminate the need for food lines. We’re going broke over this (and for other reasons).

The S is going to hit the fan sooner or later, and this shocking Gallup poll should serve as yet another slap in the face that we’re facing some tough times ahead. Get ready people…

Things are speeding up.

Keep stacking those preps.
