June Jobs Report Just Another Disappointment

Every media source in the country is writing about the pathetic June jobs report. You know what policies are to blame for the lack of job creation. You know what needs to be done. So here are just the straight facts about the jobs report:

  • Non-farm payrolls added just 80,000 jobs in June (77,000 were added in May);
  • The unemployment rate remains at 8.2%;
  • 12.7 million Americans remain unemployed;
  • 5.4 million Americans have been unemployed for 27 weeks or longer (long-term unemployed);
  • The real unemployment rate rose to 14.9% (includes part-time workers who wish to find full-time employment);
  • The unemployment rate for teenagers is 23.7%, and;
  • 821,000 Americans have given up looking for work

The unemployment rate in January 2009, when President Obama was inaugurated, was 7.8%. It reached a high of 10% during his Presidency, and now stands at 8.2% just 123 days before the election. The private sector needs to create about 150,000 jobs a month just to keep pace with the expanding workforce.

In short: this country needs a serious change in direction. Congress should return next week and once and for all seriously focus on jobs and the economy. We can’t afford any more gimmicks or distractions.

  2. You probably will not read this or act upon it simply because political correctness is more important to you than truth. The truth is “THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS LAUGHING THEIR BUNNS OFF BECAUSE WE REPUBLICANS ARE LIKE LITTLE KIDS ARGUEING OVER WHO WON THE MOST MARBLES”. What I’m talking about is “Obama Health Care/Obama Tax” have The Democrats and us fighting back and forth with them about which it is, while the facts go untold. Remember Pelosi saying “we got to pass it to find out what’s in it” Let’s play that clip followed by the facts in the law showing America just how many items in the law authorize the Feds to put their hands into America’s pockets and extract our hard earned dollars! Go item by item where this law authorizes that and after we’ve put that to bed, than get to what’s really important, THE SERVIVAL OF OUR AMERICA!.
