State's unemployment picture looking a bit better

The figures above came directly from the State Department of Labor.

I have to agree with edjayhawk that it appears that there are less people receiving unemployment benefits and that skews the unemployment rate.

I guess the disturbing piece here is the State felt the need to issue a press release and the media just repeats the message.
