“In February 2015 there were 43,000 fewer white Americans employed, 354,000 more not in the labor force, 96,000 more employed and we added 295,000 jobs? Was Common Core math used?”…Citizen Wells

I warned you this was happening.

From Citizen News April 3, 2015.

“From the US Labor Dept. BLS April 3, 2015.

“THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION — MARCH 2015″

“Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 126,000 in March, and the unemployment
rate was unchanged at 5.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.
Employment continued to trend up in professional and business services, health care,
and retail trade, while mining lost jobs.”

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.htm

Now for the rest of the story, the truth.

Also from the same website, historical tables.

There were 106,000 fewer whites employed in March.

There were 226,000 more whites not in the labor force.

There were 81,000 more Hispanic employments.”

From Citizen News March 31, 2015.

“From Pew Research March 26, 2015.

“In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession, but a solid majority still works in low-skilled service, construction and production occupations, according to new Pew Research Center estimates.”

“Unauthorized immigrants made up 5.1% of the nation’s labor force in 2012, numbering 8.1 million who were working or looking for work, according to previously published Pew Research estimates (Passel and Cohn, 2014). But as this new analysis shows, they account for a far higher share of the total workforce in specific jobs, notably farming (26%), cleaning and maintenance (17%), and construction (14%).

The unauthorized immigrant share of the work force peaked at 5.4% in 2007, when the two-year Great Recession began.

The number in the labor force has ranged from 8.1 million to 8.3 million since 2007. The relative stability of the size of the unauthorized immigrant labor force since 2007 contrasts with a marked decline in the overall U.S. unauthorized immigrant population, which peaked at 12.2 million in 2007, dropped through 2009 and stabilized after that, to total 11.2 million in 2012 (Passel and Cohn, 2014).””

From Citizen News April 2, 2015.

“We have a employment crisis in this country.

Many jobs were lost just prior to Obama taking the White House.

However, many jobs have been lost during the Obama Administration and we are no where near recovering them.

A high percentage of jobs added were part time and lower wage ones.

Janet Yellen and the media have bragged about the current levels of initial claims.

But what does that data really mean?”

“Some of the more blatant lies (yes Gallup CEO Jim Clifton was correct to call them lies), relate to the unemployment rate and it’s improvement and job growth.

For example, in February 2015 the Labor Dept. reported 295,000 jobs added.

However, there was only a 96,000 gain in employment.

And Whites had 43,000 fewer employments!

There were 354,000 more people not in the labor force!

There were 180,000 more people not in the labor force who want a job now!

Did you know?

5,205,000 full time employments were lost during the first year of Obama’s occupation of the White House from January 2009 to January 2010?

2.8 million white Americans fewer were employed during Obama’s first year.

During Obama’s term, from January 2009 to now, 75 percent of the employment went to Hispanics/Latinos.”

Citizen News March 31, 2015, Ted Cruz eligibility, Obama eligibility, Natural born citizen, Illegal immigrants get white collar jobs, Keeping Rod Blagojevich quiet

“no Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President . . . .”…US Constitution

“Moore said he’s seen no convincing evidence that Obama is a “natural born citizen” and a lot of evidence that suggests he is not.”…Judge Roy Moore interview by WND

“I believe I’m more pristine on Rezko than him.”…Rod Blagojevich

 

 

Ted Cruz eligibility

Ted Cruz stated that he was born a citizen of the US. Prior to his presidential run announcement that could be considered the truth, depending on which immigration statute du jour that you look at and whether or not he complied with them.

Now that Cruz is running for president, it is misleading and therefore a lie.

He must be a natural born citizen to be president and that is defined in the US constitution and the definition at the time of ratification still applies. It has not been amended.

The US Supreme court has also not redefined the meaning of natural born citizen.

Why have so many in the media, as well as the Harvard Law Review been so quick to state that Cruz is eligible?

The answer is simple.

To protect Obama.

Obama had 1 US citizen parent and was born in who in the hell knows where.

Obama eligibility

Prior to Kerchner v Obama, the emphasis was on no proof of US birth for Obama, the missing authentic birth certificate (we still haven’t seen one).

In the initial filing of the lawsuit, the emphasis is on compliance with the original definition of natural born citizen, born to 2 US citizen parents on US soil.

For those who have not read it or want to revisit it.

CDR Charles F. Kerchner, et al v Barack Obama, et al.

“Obama’s Father Not a U.S. Citizen

44. Presumably Obama’s mother was a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth.
45. Obama’s father, Barack Obama Sr., at the time of Obama’s birth was a British subject/citizen subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, and would have handed down British citizenship to his son, Obama. Endnote 8.
46. Obama publicly admits his father was not a U.S. citizen and was a British
subject and then a Kenyan citizen when Kenya became an independent country.
47. Hence, at the time of his birth on August 4, 1961, Obama was born to a U.S.
citizen mother but not a U.S. citizen father.
48. Under the definition of an Article II “natural born Citizen,” Obama therefore
cannot be a “natural born Citizen.” Endnote 9.”

“That is why John Jay, who was a major writer in The Federalist Papers which
were critical in the ratification process of getting the Constitution approved, requested that the term be inserted into our Constitution. He was one of the founders who was very concerned about foreign influences being exerted on our new nation, especially on the President and Commander in Chief of the Army. He was not concerned about the loyalties of existing “original citizens” of the new country because they had openly fought for independence. And that is why the Article II grandfather clause is in there for them. But John Jay was very concerned about foreign influences on future Presidents and Commander in Chiefs. Thus he wrote the letter to General Washington. Washington
agreed and had the clause put in the Constitution and the delegates agreed and approved it and the “We the People” of those days voted for it and ratified it. And it can only be changed now by a new amendment by today’s “We the People.””

US Jobs

Citizen Wells has been reporting the real jobs situation and the decimation of white american jobs.

Here is another correlation to the jobs data.

From Citizen News March 31, 2015.

“Unauthorized aka illegal immigrants gain more white collar jobs”

From Pew Research March 26, 2015.

“In a reflection of changes in the overall economy since the Great Recession, the U.S. unauthorized immigrant workforce now holds fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones than it did before the 2007-2009 recession, but a solid majority still works in low-skilled service, construction and production occupations, according to new Pew Research Center estimates.”

Blagojevich

Speaking of protecting Obama.

We are still waiting on a ruling on the Rod Blagojevich appeal.

Why the hurry.

This has only been going on for almost 15 years from the time his administration first came under investigation by the feds through Blagojevich becoming poised to run for president until 2006 when he and Obama traded places, my belief that a deal was struck to protect Obama, his arrest after the 2008 election, 2 trials, numerous delays, hiding of evidence, an inordinate amount of elapsed time for an appeal decision…..

“Regardless of how this plays out, it benefits Obama. If there is no appeal or the appeal is denied, Blagojevich will be sequestered. If the appeal proceeds, it could drag out beyond impacting the 2012 election cycle. The intent is obvious.”…Citizen Wells, July 19, 2011

This sounds more like the old Soviet Union than what I remember of the US.

Two people with vast knowledge of US employment have made statements in the past several years.

Keith Hall ran the Bureau of Labor Statistics from 2008 to 2012.

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution August 5, 2013.

“The July government employment report released Friday showed the job market treading water.”And a closer look at one of the two measures the Labor Department uses to gauge employment suggests that part-time work accounted for almost all the job growth that’s been reported over the past six months. …” ‘Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,’ said Keith Hall, a senior researcher at George Mason University’s Mercatus Center. ‘That is really remarkable.’”

Jim Clifton is the CEO of Gallup.

From Gallup February 3, 2015.

“The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment”

“Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

And it’s a lie that has consequences, because the great American dream is to have a good job, and in recent years, America has failed to deliver that dream more than it has at any time in recent memory. A good job is an individual’s primary identity, their very self-worth, their dignity — it establishes the relationship they have with their friends, community and country. When we fail to deliver a good job that fits a citizen’s talents, training and experience, we are failing the great American dream.”

Jim Clifton was attacked and ridiculed.

But Clifton was correct.

Websters New World College Dictionary

“The official dictionary of the Associated Press”
Lie definition (noun)
“anything that gives or is meant to give a false impression.”
So why does Janet Yellen, Obama the liar in chief and the media continue to tout the “low” unemployment rate.

It is a big lie!!!

Janet Yellen in her FOMC presentation repeatedly referred to the “low” unemployment rate in the context of strong employment growth as well as the number of “jobs” being added.

“We have seen continued progress toward our objective of maximum employment. The pace of employment growth has remained strong, with job gains averaging nearly 290,000 per month over the past three months. The unemployment rate was 5.5 percent in February; that’s three-tenths lower than the latest reading available at the time of our December meeting.”

http://www.federalreserve.gov/mediacenter/files/FOMCpresconf20150318.pdf

Obama has a long well documented tradition of lying.

The mainstream media is controlled by Big Brother Obama.

So why is Yellen lying?

Let’s examine US employment in the short term and over Obama’s 6 year tenure.

All of this data can be found at the US Labor Dept. BLS site.

The latest report was for February 2015.

The Labor Dept. reported 295,000 jobs added.

However, there was only a 96,000  gain in employment.

And Whites had 43,000  fewer employments!

There were 354,000 more people not in the labor force!

There were 180,000 more people not in the labor force who want a job now!

Does Yellen consider this strong employment growth?

That does not even cover new entrants into the labor force.

Remember, there are approx. 4 million people turning 16 each year in the US. This is from people living here and does not count illegals.

From Obama’s first 6 years.

5,205,000 full time employments were lost during the first year of Obama’s occupation of the White House from January 2009 to January 2010?

2.8 million white Americans fewer were employed during Obama’s first year.

During Obama’s term, from January 2009 to now, 75 percent of the employment went to Hispanics/Latinos.

What about people losing their job?

Averaging 300,000 initial claims each week seems to be a victory to those in government and the media.

From Zero Hedge March 19, 2015.

“After some ‘stability’ in the last few weeks, initial jobless claims in the major shale states has started to rise again with Texas the most impacted for now. Overall initial jobless claims rose very modestly to 291k, but leaves the 4-week average above 300k for the 2nd week in a row – the first time in over 6 months.”

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-19/initial-claims-hold-worst-levels-6-months-shale-state-joblessness-re-surges

I have been concerned for some time that we are not getting the full impact of these numbers.

From the BLS.

Unemployment insurance (UI) programs are administered at the state level and provide assistance to jobless people who are looking for work. Statistics on the insured unemployed in the United States are collected as a by-product of state UI programs. Workers who lose their jobs may file applications to determine if they are eligible for UI assistance. These applications are referred to as “initial claims.” Claimants who meet the eligibility requirements must file “continuing claims” for each week that they seek benefits.

Data on initial and continuing UI claims are maintained by the Employment and Training Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, and are available on the Internet at http://workforcesecurity.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims.asp.

While the UI claims data provide useful information, they are not used to measure total unemployment because they exclude several important groups. To begin with, not all workers are covered by UI programs. For example, self-employed workers, unpaid family workers, workers in certain not-for-profit organizations, and several other small (primarily seasonal) worker categories are not covered.

In addition, the insured unemployed exclude the following:

  1. Unemployed workers who have exhausted their benefits.
  2. Unemployed workers who have not yet earned benefit rights (such as new entrants or reentrants to the labor force).
  3. Disqualified workers whose unemployment is considered to have resulted from their own actions rather than from economic conditions; for example, a worker fired for misconduct on the job.
  4. Otherwise eligible unemployed persons who do not file for benefits.

Because of these and other limitations, statistics on insured unemployment cannot be used as a measure of total unemployment in the United States. Indeed, over the past decade, only about one-third of the total unemployed, on average, received regular UI benefits.”

http://www.bls.gov/cps/cps_htgm.htm

The number of people who have lost jobs and in some cases fallen by the wayside may be much higher than we thought.

I hope to report more on this soon.

I know that the mainstream media is not reporting this.

Are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck or your favorite talk radio host reporting these facts?

Let me know.

Today is PI day, 3/14/15.

It is also Albert Einstein’s birthday.

I began life as a math major.

That is one of the reasons I have reported so much on the real jobs situation in the US and have questioned people such as Goldman Sachs chief economist Jan Hatzius.

But you know what, I could have done this in the fifth grade.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist or a math whiz to evaluate the data from the US Labor Department.

You just have to care and have basic math skills.

Sadly this is lacking in the mainstream media.

Even Fox News.

Some of the more blatant lies (yes Gallup CEO Jim Clifton was correct to call them lies), relate to the unemployment rate and it’s improvement and job growth.

For example, in February 2015 the Labor Dept. reported 295,000 jobs added.

However, there was only a 96,000  gain in employment.

And Whites had 43,000  fewer employments!

There were 354,000 more people not in the labor force!

There were 180,000 more people not in the labor force who want a job now!

Did you know?

5,205,000 full time employments were lost during the first year of Obama’s occupation of the White House from January 2009 to January 2010?

2.8 million white Americans fewer were employed during Obama’s first year.

During Obama’s term, from January 2009 to now, 75 percent of the employment went to Hispanics/Latinos.

Since it is PI Day and Einstein’s birthday, I present some new data and a math lesson. Math that I understood by the fifth grade.

Below are the changes in employment by race during the first 6 years of the Obama Administration.

The ratio of employment added in 6 years over employment in Jan. 2009 is given with the resulting percent change over 6 years.

White

1,172,000 / 116,863,000 = .01 = 1 %

Black

1,590,000 / 15,481,000 = .103 = 10.3 %

Hispanic/Latino

4,511,000 / 19,794,000 = .228 = 22.8 %

Asian

1,934,000 / 6,606,000 = .293 = 29.3 %

How do you like those numbers?

Seen/heard them reported by the White House or mainstream media, Fox?

Our math capabilities have diminished in this country.

But our real problems are priorities and integrity.

 

 

 

White Americans lowest employment gains under Obama, Hispanics Asians Blacks higher, Just over 1 million added Jan 2009 to 2015, Many millions more of white Americans without jobs, 2.8 million white employments lost in 2009, Much of gains part time

“U.S. percentage of non-Hispanic whites hits all-time low of 63%”

“The percentage of non-Hispanic white people in the U.S. population has reached an all-time low: 63%. That is 197.7 million white people out of 313.9 million Americans.

In 2000, whites were 69% of the population. In 1980, they made up 80%. But now white deaths outpace white births by 12,419, and the U.S. is on track to becoming a majority-minority country by 2043, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

“This is the first time there has ever been an overall non-Hispanic white natural decrease in the U.S.,” demographer Kenneth Johnson told Bloomberg.

Nearly half of American children younger than 5 are minorities, and the number of minorities under 18 is expected to surpass the number of white children by 2019. The total minority population has grown 21 times faster than the white population.”

Did you know that 5,205,000 full time employments were lost during the first year of Obama’s occupation of the White House from January 2009 to January 2010?

Don’t take my word for it, FRED, the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis reports it.

http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/LNS12500000

This number has been somewhat obscured because some part time jobs were created to partially offset this number so that we only lost (ha ha)  3,714,000 jobs in 2009.

This is one of the best examples of many full time jobs being replaced by few part time jobs.

Ready for more laughs? (I know & agree, this is too damn serious to laugh)

The Obama White House brags about creating full time jobs.

“New Data: Most of the Increase in Employment is in Full-Time Positions Since the Affordable Care Act Became Law”

“Since the Affordable Care Act became law, the economy has created 6.5 million full-time jobs, while the number of part-time jobs has been essentially unchanged.”

http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/09/06/new-data-most-increase-employment-full-time-positions-affordable-care-act-became-law

For starters, as you can clearly see, Obama brags about creating full time jobs that were mostly lost during his first year.

The recession supposedly ended June 2009.

By all credible accounts, there has been an increase in part time jobs.

The original WhiteHouse.gov article was posted:

September 06, 2013.

Once again the quote from above:

“Since the Affordable Care Act became law, the economy has created 6.5 million full-time jobs, while the number of part-time jobs has been essentially unchanged.”

From the BLS.

“Commissioners
Keith Hall
January 2008–January 2012
Keith HallAppointed by: George W. Bush
Also served under: Barack Obama”

http://www.bls.gov/bls/history/commissioners/hall.htm

Keith Hall was commisioner of the BLS and is not under the control of Obama.

If anyone should know jobs data, it is Mr. Hall.

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution August 5, 2013.

“Welcome to the Obamcare economy. From McClatchy:

“The July government employment report released Friday showed the job market treading water.”And a closer look at one of the two measures the Labor Department uses to gauge employment suggests that part-time work accounted for almost all the job growth that’s been reported over the past six months. …” ‘Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,’ said Keith Hall, a senior researcher at George Mason University’s Mercatus Center. ‘That is really remarkable.’”Hall is no ordinary academic. He ran the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the agency that puts out the monthly jobs report, from 2008 to 2012. Over the past six months, he said, the Household Survey shows 963,000 more people reporting that they were employed, and 936,000 of them reported they’re in part-time jobs.” ‘That is a really high number for a six-month period,’ Hall said. ‘I’m not sure that has ever happened over six months before.’ “”
“How, then, to explain what’s happened since January? Back to the McClatchy article and Hall, the former BLS chief:

“Hall speculated that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, shorthanded as Obamacare, might be resulting in employers shifting workers to part-time status to avoid coming health care obligations.”

‘There’s been so much talk about the effects of Obamacare on part-time work,’ he said. ‘This is such an unusual thing to see.’ ”
By “so much talk,” Hall of course was referring to the numerous stories of employers that are cutting back on their workers’ hours to avoid qualifying for Obamacare’s mandate to provide health insurance for them. Just yesterday, the AJC reported on the various ways local employers are trying to cope with the looming mandate (subscription to MyAJC required for link), including the decision by AAA Parking to move 250 full-time workers to part-time status. Many of the Americans affected by these business decisions are, of course, the very people Obamacare was supposed to help.

In fact, we can get even more specific than the January-July numbers Hall outlined.

Looking at the BLS data, the number of Americans working part-time for economic reasons — i.e., not because they want to work part-time — hit a multi-year low in March. Since then, part-time jobs have accounted for a whopping 99.1 percent of all jobs created. Over the past four months, on a net basis, just 9,000 full-time jobs have been added in the entire United States.

That means there have been 110 part-time jobs created for every one full-time job since March.”

The Atlanta Journal Constitution article was written one month prior to the WhiteHouse.gov article.

From the Federal Reserve April 14, 2014.

“The persistently high stock of involuntary part-time work

Chart 1 presents the two main categories of involuntary part-time work: i) individuals who work part time due to slack work or unfavorable business conditions, and ii) individuals who could only find part-time work, each as a percentage of the labor force (left panel) and for each its change since 2007 (right panel). For comparison purposes, we also plot the unemployment rate and average weekly hours by persons at work (the workweek). The decomposition in Chart 1 yields our first observation: although the share of individuals in the labor force working part time due to slack work or business conditions has declined roughly along with the unemployment rate, the percentage of individuals reporting they could only find part-time work has continued to increase.”

Even PBS is asking questions.

“The startling fact you, we and Paul Krugman didn’t know about the jobs report”

“Hidden Part-Time Workers

But the number of part-time workers may actually be even higher than 7 million. As Making Sen$e has recently discovered, there’s another whole pool of part-time workers whom the government counts as full-time employees. How can that be? To count as a full-time worker, you must work 35 hours or more. But what if you work two or more part-time jobs that add up to 35 hours?

Several months ago, when we first asked Wolfers whether those part-time workers would be counted as full-timers, he said, of course not, no, but then quickly realized that, yes, in fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics would count them as full-time employees.

According to the BLS, in data not disclosed in their monthly report, 1.2 million workers toil at multiple part-time gigs with hours adding up to or surpassing 35 hours. On paper, they’re full-time workers. At work, at home, and shuttling between shifts, though, they’re part-timers who may not enjoy the benefits, convenience or stability that comes with holding one full-time position.

The Real Shocker

Even more shocking is that the BLS’s headline number of jobs added each month — the figure that can move markets and shape headlines — makes no distinction between full-time and part-time payroll gains. “So if you’re on for an hour,” Wolfers said, “you’re counted as having a job” in the survey of employers.”

You expect lies from the Obama camp and White House.

The media is just as bad.

More to come on that.

February 2015 employment reports are lies, March 6, 2015, Who getting jobs?, Part time low paying jobs?, White Americans getting short changed

“Of the approx. 6 million new employments since Obama took office in January 2009, 4,511,000, 75 percent, were Hispanic/Latino!”…Citizen Wells

“In today’s labor market, there are nearly 1 million “missing” young workers—potential workers who are neither employed nor actively seeking work (and are thus not counted in the unemployment rate) because job opportunities remain so scarce. If these missing workers were in the labor market looking for work, the unemployment rate of workers under age 25 would be 18.1 percent instead of 14.5 percent.”…Economic Policy Institute May 1, 2014

***  Important update below  ***

The Obama controlled mainstream has been busy lauding the job growth and laying the groundwork to blame lower jobs on the weather.

Here is one of many examples.

From Market Watch March 5, 2015.

“The U.S. probably produced 238,000 new jobs in February, according to economists polled by MarketWatch. That would mark a small decline from January’s preliminary 257,000 gain and larger drop from the brawny 336,000 monthly average since November. But it would still be pretty darn good and extend a streak of 200,000-plus increases to 12 months, the longest string of such gains since 1994-1995.

The unemployment rate, meanwhile, is seen dipping to 5.6% in February from 5.7% in January.”

“Bad weather can play havoc with early efforts to figure out how many jobs were created. In 2013, for example, the government initially said the economy created 236,000 jobs. That figure was eventually boosted to 314,000 — a 33% increase.

This winter the weather was unusually warm from November through early January before turning much worse. Extreme temperatures or heavy snow make it harder for people to get to work and lead to temporary work shutdowns.”

Job growth “pretty darn good”, eh?

Here is another employment fact.

Last year, 2014, the US Labor Dept. claims a gain of 3,464,000 jobs and a gain in employment of whites of 1,626,000 whites.

See anything wrong with those numbers?

From Citizen Wells March 5, 2015.

“ADP just reported 212,000 jobs added.

Regardless of the number, the lies about the job situation and economy will continue from the Obama Administration and Obama controlled mainstream media.

Did you know that 5,088,000 jobs were lost during Obama’s first year in office?

Recession over June 2009???

From Citizen Wells March 2, 2015.

“Here is the truth:

Job recovery of what jobs?

It is questionable if we have recovered the jobs lost prior to Obama taking office.

2.8 million white Americans fewer were employed during Obama’s first year.

During Obama’s term, from January 2009 to now, 75 percent of the employment went to Hispanics/Latinos.

New entrants to the labor market, those turning 16, netted by deaths yields at least 9 million new workers.

The US Labor Dept. states that we have approx. 15.5 million more in the labor force since January 2009.

4.7 million migrants were given work permits and God only knows how many more illegals entered the country.

There was an increase of over 12 million not in the labor force since Obama took office.

This is one reason that millennials are having a tough time.

Of the jobs touted in the article above for last year, 1.3 million went to Hispanic/Latinos. Almost as much as White Americans.”

https://citizenwells.wordpress.com/2015/03/02/job-recovery-a-lie-over-9-million-millennials-entered-job-market-2-8-million-fewer-white-americans-employed-in-obamas-first-year-4-7-million-migrants-given-work-permits-sloppy-reporting-bias-orw/

So, in 2009, Obama’s first year in office, we lost 5,088,000 jobs, added at least 1.5 million legal workers to the labor force and God only knows how many illegals.

Oh sure, the recession was over in June 2009 and the economy was well on the way to recovery….if you are on drugs,

Perhaps that explains it.”

***  Update Mar 6, 8:50 AM  ***

Orwellian BLS data reality check.

ADP reported 212,000 jobs added 2 days ago.

The US Labor Dept. BLS just reported 295,000 jobs added.

But get this!

There were 96,000 more people employed.

There were 354,000 more people not in the labor force!

There were 180,000 more people not in the labor force who want a job now!

There were 250,000 more Hispanic/Latino workers employed since December 2014 (Jan. number was “rectified” by BLS & why Dec was chosen).

43,000 fewer Whites employed in Feb!!!
