U.S. Economy Improving. Adds 146,000 New Jobs. Unemployment Down to 7.7% - Lowest Since 2008
U.S. nonfarm payrolls increased by a seasonally adjusted 146,000 last month, the Labor Department said Friday. The unemployment rate, obtained by a separate survey of U.S. households, fell two-tenths of a percentage point to 7.7%, the lowest level since December 2008.

It is called holiday jobs you libtard. Just wait until a few million drop off unemployment benefits at the end of the month, you'll get to brag about an even smaller false number.

Seasonal jobs. Some will become permanent but not most. When I worked retail when I was younger, I worked at Costco, Target, and yes Wal-Mart for a time. The typical routine is that you hire someone and bring them on for 89 days, then get rid of them before they qualify for any kind of benefit or real employment. The ones you plan on keeping you lay off because January-March are the worst months of retail. Then you call some of them back based on corporate projections from HQ.

I believe that the main problem you are going to see is the shift to part time employment as employers don't want to insure you. That why we can all pat each other on the back as unemployment goes down, but no one will actually have any improved standard of living. I see this happening with some people I know now. They can only find part time work. Because it pays less than their former jobs they are simultaneously drawing unemployment as supplemental pay. They are fucked when it runs out.

How does the unemployment number go from 8.3% down to 7.7% with only 146,000 jobs added, in a country with 310 million people? The math doesn't add up here...

Well, one way to jigger the number up would be to reduce the number of total people "in the workforce". As we see in the data at the link below, 350-thousand people decided in November that they were no longer part of the workforce which, pardon me, has a male bovine excrement odor to it. WFT happened to 350-thousand workers?

[link to www.bls.gov]


What's more, when you drill down further into the data here, you see that the total number of people working in America actually DROPPED 122,000 workers. True, the number of workers receiving unemployment dropped by 229,000 but remember, just because they run out of benefits doesn't mean they left the workforce.


To be sure, the CES Birth/Death Model which has been used to "estimate jobs into existence" showed a drop of 29-thousand for the month.

[link to www.bls.gov]

You drop 350,000 workers from the workforce number and blow off 229,000 from the unemployed roles for a total of 579,000 workers doing a vanishing act.

But it's hard to gloss over the total number of workers going to jobs in the workplace was down the 122,000....and that's the real deal when it comes to future sales that corporations have to look at.
Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.
