Jack Welch: Unemployment numbers are cooked

Business community titan and Mitt Romney backer Jack Welch is among those who suspect the White House of cooking the labor figures, as he tweeted a few minutes ago:
There are many who will point out that the unemployment rate fell on increased hiring but also people leaving the workforce after giving up on finding a job. But the charge from Welch, a serious figure, that the numbers were cooked to distract from debating policies, was notable. (POLITICO)
