    Everyone knows that the large majority 22,500 jobs in December are temporary 30-60 low wages poverty jobs. The true unemployment rate of the US is closer to 36% if you do the proper math and Utah at 15% if accounting of those who seek and want a job. But government won't let the unemployed register as unemployed unless they receive and are on the unemployment benefits lists.

    How many of these 22,500 Utah jobs were register with the state tax agency and the IRS? How many of these 22,500 temp jobs paid income taxes or federal taxes on their incomes? The 22,500 jobs are not real and this number is accumulated from businesses on unofficial channels of job reporting.

    Its imperative that state and federal governemnt falsify true unemployment so they can justify faking immigrations controls to allow millions of illegal aliens to breach our borders and occupy this country as undocumented workers with no real intent of regulating any trespassing across our borders.

    Government knows amnesty will be a phony lie and minimal attempts to make illegal aliens register as they have done in the last 35 years.

    We may have plenty of jobs here in Utah, but we are lacking in a sufficient number which pay living wages. Who cares if unemployment is 4.1% when half the people getting those newly created jobs will be getting welfare because their wages are so low.
