And we know that many unfortunate Americans have fallen off the rolls altogether
and therefore are not counted as amoung the unemployed. So is this story a glass
half full or half empty?
What a joke! The Labor department massages the figures to make it look like
things are rosy. Jobless figures are down because so many people lost their
benefits. This is all part of the Dear Leader's strategy to bring in
Oh the haters will find a way to turn "anything obama" in to a negative.
No matter what the data says, it's wrong it if does not fit the agenda of
the fringers. Come on now folks, isn't this 'hate everything
obama" thing getting old? How long can you keep this up in face of
contradicting data? Man, get over it folks, he won, he has a majority of
congress on his side, and will have even more of a majority come 2014. Thanks
for making it easier for the POTUS by continuing this ill-fated strategy of
total and complete blindness to reality.
This is just another misrepresentation of the evil empire of obama! The truth is
that many are now working 28 hour jobs and many others have fell off
unemployment or quit trying. obama is succeeding in his goal to destroy the USA.
Just another cooked up report from the white house like the one last year before
this doesn't mean companies are hiring - this simply means people have
stopped looking for work and have fallen off the government unemployment roles.
This is actually a false narrative that obscures the real picture of what is
actually happening. Barack will of course try to suggest business is booming as
he always has. Real unemployment is closer to 12%. Welcome to Pottersville.
The REALLY sad part is that the percentage that have simply given up trying to
find a job is probably 3x 7%.The other sad part is that of the 220k
"new" jobs created, 41% of those were in government!
Government jobs have actually dropped since Obama took office. Somewhat little
known fact is that "communist" Obama has reduced size of Federal
workforce more than any modern president. If the government jobs kept pace, we
would be close to historic highs in employment right now. So, this drop in
unemployment, while marred by the increase in lower paying jobs and decrease in
average hours worked per week, is really good sign. Considering that Republicans
in Congress are obstructing economic recovery every way they can (bordering on
treason), current economic state of the country is pretty good and promising.
Is this report put out by the same Dept. that put out the job numbers prior to
election? Those numbers if you recall are in serious question. It seems as
though the census bureau cooked the books for you guessed it The King. As long
as this administration exists I do not believe much when I hear "The
government says" or especially when it is "the White House says".
@noteahereYou've been listening to the lame stream media too
much. All you have to do is do a little investigation on your own. The
goobermint's own figures prove that they are creative in their accounting.
with the extended unemployment benefits being cut off in January, I would expect
people to start going back to work. amazing how that works...
@justworldAre you trying to interrupt a good old "we hate all things
Obama" rant session with facts again?
