90% of it is made up shit with a spin put on it.

Bureau of Labor shows MI unemployment in Sept 2010 at 11.9% (Aug 12.2% and Oct 11.6%) So based on your email the current rate should be somewhere in the 8.6-9.3% area. Which it is not, Sept 2011 rate is 11.1. So IT IS down from last year, but not 3% and may not be down at a rate matching the national average either.
Granted current rates are based on those getting benefits and does not include those out of work w/o benefits.
So in the end, if you are working and live in MI you are still part of the vast majority. And of those not working a large portion of them have not worked, will not work and don't want to work anyway, so whats it matter.
