    Yeahhhh !
    Plus 144’487 in December to minus 45000 in December 2005. Great !

    And usually December is always a positive month, due to Christmas sales, more workers, at least temporary workers are hired.

    Therefore reality to the state of your economy is far bleaker than the one announced by your government.
