hes a lakota indian

todays radio news says povery rate is only one point past the 1994 rate -i say they li

If the BLS was honest they would have taken the number of unemployed Indians living on these nine reservations and added them to the 14,400 people looking for a job. On nearly every Indian reservation in South Dakota the unemployment rate is 50 percent and higher.

If there are 20,000 unemployed Native Americans living on the nine reservations, that brings the total of unemployed in South Dakota to 34,400. This new figure would surely skewer the false unemployment figures compiled by the state. In reality, there are closer to 40,000 unemployed Native Americans residing in South Dakota. Why are these unemployed Indians not counted? Aren't they also citizens of South Dakota?
