"You know the old saying: "Everyone loves a charade." Well, it seems that the Census Bureau may be playing games.

Last week, one of the millions of workers hired by Census 2010 to parade around the country counting Americans blew the whistle on some statistical tricks.

The worker, Naomi Cohn, told The Post that she was hired and fired a number of times by Census. Each time she was hired back, it seems, Census was able to report the creation of a new job to the Labor Department. ........."

Why do they even bother with the actual hiring/firing? The "statistics" they feed us are lies anyway. They spend more time hiding the problem than finding the solution. The oil volcano is another good example of that.

Thanks Rick! Could they think we're mushrooms ..... keep us in the dark, feed us BS and no one will be the wiser? Has worked for years so why not continue.

That sounds like the perfect solution to the unemployment problem. Just fire everyone a few times and rehire them - MILLIONS of jobs could be created that way!

Seriously, when they fire Naomi, that should deduct 1 job - so it does make sense when they hire her, to add 1 job. Done properly, it would seem to me, that one cancels out the other?

Thanks Truecritic! If the article is correct firing didn't cancel out hiring so job creation numbers were being falsified.
