Job-killing regulations

Just a quick one here.

Bureau of Labor Statistics keeps tabs on why people become “separated” from their jobs and why they’re filing unemployment claims. Here’s a sample chart, with data from the second quarter of 2010 and the first two quarters of 2011 – So, how come you\'re filing for UI?

Note, for example, in 2011 Q2, there were a little over 231,000 initial claims for UI. Of those, about 1,500 were due to “government regulations/intervention.” More than 19,000 were due to a lack of work, and about 13,000 were caused by some kind of financial problems with the employer.

No word on how many were caused by fake global warming scares, same-sex marriage, or the fact that Barack Obama is a Muslim.
