they are just trying to point out the lies....many unemployed in my area are still out of work...not one got a job...and the number of food stamp receivers has gone up nationwide... same as those who now collect disability .. so unemployment going down not because people have jobs but because of free handout and easier to get disability rules... just need to be fat and one can easily qualify for it.

I would suggest that you just don't understand the wickedness of the Obama political machine. I don't want America to fail, I want Americans to WAKE UP. If I thought for a minute that those numbers accurately reflected an actual improvement to the economy, I would be delighted. But we have serious reason to doubt that this report is accurate. The Department of Labor has made errors in the past, and they correct them ABOUT FIVE WEEKS LATER. That would put the correction for this current mistake AFTER the November election. The damage will already have been done, though, as this is a very close election and some people may erroneously believe that the economy is finally turning around and vote for that pitiful excuse for a President again.

It's very nice that you display this integrity but your bad feelings are mis-directed. I am trying to get my country back out of the hands of a leftist socialist demagogue.

And if anyone thinks the Department of Labor can't be made to turn out incorrect numbers on purpose, I have some nice land down in Florida to sell you! Government agencies are VERY political, and the people at the top are the MOST political.

The only jobs left are service jobs.
Construction is dead and what little construction that is going on is filled with lazy ass union boys or illegals.
All the manufacturing jobs have been sent overseas or south of the border.
The only jobs left are the ones that cater to the pencil pushers.
My point is every one should be MAD AS HELL regardless of political stands

Unemployment is only down because they have been systematically kicking people off unemployment roles. I know of two folks that were notified that tier 2 and 3 are no longer existent so if they havent found jobs by the time their tier is up they go without..no unemployment check, no job nothing. This unemployment is Down stuff is a Freaking LIE>

Re: Unemployment Goes DOWN And Republicans Are Mad About It. WTF!?
Let me put it to perspective why..... In late 2010 I lost my job that paid $14 dollars an hour that was full time.

I looked for a new job so long that I got really discouraged after 100+ applications and nothing.

I now am working for 9$ an hour 20 hours a week at mcdonalds.... I had to take it because I had been looking for so long I was completely desperate.

This is the problem with those figures, sure I have a job now. But I am now severely "underemployed".

People need to look at this figure as much as unemployment rates, because it means now I'm not paying taxes because I don't make enough, and I'm not spending the money I was because I don't make enough.

You shouldn't be excited that the unemployment numbers went down because the overall family income has gone down significantly in the last 10 years, especially when you weigh it against inflation.

The bottom line is like most americans I am worse off than I was 4 years ago, and the economy still stinks.


Note that I did not use any public/government assistance in the 1.5 years I was out of a job, because I didn't want to be a part of the problem.

I relied on my savings and credit to sustain my life. So again people like me that don't want to leech off the system, are also not included in those unemployment figures.
So to me they are completely inaccurate, and not a true gauge of anything much like the stock market manipulation.

You want to know how the economy really is doing you look at consumer spending and income to debt ratio. People are using less gas because they simply don't have the money. People are skipping out on the extra things they usually buy.

I would also add that another figure to look at is the labor participation rate.

Although, its been steadily declining over the last decade, it decreased at a quicker than average pace over the last four years.

The bit I'd chomp at would be the QUALITY of the jobs being added. Service sector jobs comprised the majority of the ones that were added if I remember the report right. These are usually low-wage and don't produce goods for export.

You recover from a recession by producing things, not by asking if they want fries with their order.

norespect

I can't stand either of the candidates...but, the Republicans have a point, Unemployment never went down.

I think maybe you're a victim of what you see on TV. Turn it off and do some READING and THINKING. Posting 3 sentence threads with no information to back any attempted "theory" you might have makes you seem ignorant, slow, and naive.

Read something without pictures...
watching the "run up" to the elections and the "hopes and dreams" that are built as a result is like watching a dead mouse that is still able to make his exercise wheel go around because his nerves are still twitching that familiar motion...

If the same amount of people were in the labor force as in 2008, the rate would be over 11 percent. The fact that we're not counting those people anymore doesn't mean they don't need jobs. They just can't get them.

I'm not mad because we still have jobs in our family. If you think the economy is "improving" you're not that smart.
