    What does it matter if more slaves, unpaid workers, are put to work? How does slave wages benefit the economy or its workers?

    Of these 244,000 jobs how much money to they add to the economy? Of the 150,000 lost jobs lost in money to the economy? The ratio of income to jobs is more important the how many slaves and paid workers are in the numbers. Its time these job reports put a dollar value on all the job losses and job creations, that is the true measure the job market and the economy. Not all jobs pay $100/hr.

    Once again Obama administration is skewing the numbers to make himself look good. The economy is stagnant and not going anywhere because of underpaid private workers and over paid welfare professionals.

    Yes, we will stay tuned. America will keep in power the current administration as long as things are going good economically and will vote out the party in power when things are going badly. Is it any wonder that the opposition party will do all that it can to sabotage the other? The Republicans will do what it can to not let good things happen for Obama. The same the other way around. Wait and see.
