AP job facts January 23, 2013, Recession tech kill middle class jobs, 70 percent of jobs added low paying, Government policies biggest job killer

“only 2 percent of the 3.5 million jobs gained since the recession ended in June 2009 are midpay. Nearly 70 percent are low-paying jobs”…AP, Kitsap Sun January 22, 2013

“With a 63.7% labor force participation, “conditions in the labor market are considerably worse than indicated” in July’s report”…economist Joshua Shapiro, WSJ August 3, 2012

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984″

With the controversy about the AP producing biased reports about jobs added and unemployment, I did a search this morning:

January 23, 2013 AP jobs

I found the article below. There is truth in the article. There has been a trend for technology to replace jobs. Technology has also helped companies to function after massive layoffs. However, Technology did not cause the “Great Recession.”

From the Kitsap Sun January 22, 2013.

“Five years after the start of the Great Recession, the toll is terrifyingly clear: Millions of middle-class jobs have been lost in developed countries the world over.

And the situation is even worse than it appears.

Most of the jobs will never return, and millions more are likely to vanish as well, say experts who study the labor market. What’s more, these jobs aren’t just being lost to China and other developing countries, and they aren’t just factory work. Increasingly, jobs are disappearing in the service sector, home to two-thirds of all workers.

They’re being obliterated by technology.”

“The numbers startle even labor economists. In the United States, half of the 7.5 million jobs lost during the Great Recession paid middle-class wages, ranging from $38,000 to $68,000. But only 2 percent of the 3.5 million jobs gained since the recession ended in June 2009 are midpay. Nearly 70 percent are low-paying jobs; 29 percent pay well.”

“Over the past 50 years, technology has drastically reduced the number of jobs in manufacturing. Robots and other machines controlled by computer programs work faster and make fewer mistakes than humans. Now, that same efficiency is being unleashed in the service economy, which employs more than two-thirds of the workforce in developed countries. Technology is eliminating jobs in office buildings, retail establishments and other businesses consumers deal with every day.”

“Thanks to technology, companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index reported one-third more profit the past year than they earned the year before the Great Recession. They’ve also expanded their businesses, but total employment, at 21.1 million, has declined by a half-million.”

“In the U.S., the economic recovery that started in June 2009 has been called the third straight “jobless recovery.”

But that’s a misnomer. The jobs came back after the first two.

Most recessions since World War II were followed by a surge in new jobs as consumers started spending again and companies hired to meet the new demand. In the months after recessions ended in 1991 and 2001, there was no familiar snap-back, but all the jobs had returned in less than three years.

But 42 months after the Great Recession ended, the U.S. has gained only 3.5 million, or 47 percent, of the 7.5 million jobs that were lost. The 17 countries that use the euro had 3.5 million fewer jobs last June than in December 2007.

This has truly been a jobless recovery, and the lack of midpay jobs is almost entirely to blame.”

While technology may account for some job losses, a big part of the answer lies in Washington, DC.


Looking for honest reporting.

  5. why is she not under oath ?

  6. kingtbone | January 23, 2013 at 9:49 am |

    why is she not under oath ?
    She’s going to lie anyway.

  7. Hillary uses as many “ahas” and “uhgs” as Obama does.

  8. Are the Citizens of the United States of America going to stand by and allow this to happen?

    LINDA JORDAN: I presented substantial evidence that Barack Obama is using forged identity documents. The court ignored this evidence and mocked my efforts. Obviously, a nerve was hit. They sanctioned me with almost $13,000 in fines for exercising my right to request an evidentiary hearing and labeled my concerns “frivolous”. PLEASE HELP LINDA…


  9. If anybody wants to hear a real line of bullshi# from DICK HEAD DURBIN listen now to C.span MMMMMMSSSSSSS. Important is telling a lot of manure, She has to be the biggest WORDSMITH OF ALL.

  10. Hillary Clinton Angrily Shouts: “What Difference Does It Make” Why Four Americans Were Killed In Benghazi?…


  11. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    os80 – Just saw Sen. McCain give her an ear full. I am waiting to hear from Senator Rod Paul. Should be some fireworks. “If bull$hit was concrete, she would be I-95.”

    Rod Paul on NOW>

  12. She is not under oath so that she can LIE,and twist words……….what else.

  13. Rand paul already talked to her, but she lied,and twisted her answers. and when he mentioned those who died she goes………..HO HUM! At the risk if sounding CRUDE I will simply say “BITCH”.

  14. oldsailor80… i was going to use the BIG C instead of “BITCH” …. that would be Clinton

  15. If ytou want to hear some real mental cases you should listen to the call in comments. I can’t believe how IDIOTIC,and uninformed the callers are The first to FEMALE callers came across as complete HALFWITS.

  16. I am praying hard that MMMSSSSSSS.IMPORTANT falls into a hole of her own digging. Kerry is an even worse NITWIT that Hillary. God help those who he comes into contact with. Maybe he will WRITE HIMSELF UP FOR SOME MEDALS. That is about his speed.

  17. Ron Johnson also done a great job on questioning MMSSSSSS.IMPORTANT. She didn’t like what he had to say either. He Rand Paul,and Sen McCain werw the only ones who stayed ON SUBJECT. The rest were all too busy verbally patting her on the back. Then to listen to her PHONEY choking up. Sounds as though somebody in Hollywood choreographed her line of BS. They are replaying it all,on C-span

  18. The entire testimony is being replayed. Listen carefully. Then listen to the NUTCASES who call in afterwards.

  19. Now comes MMSSSSSS.Boxcar with her line of REALLY DUMB REMARKS. She is a big part fo the PROBLEM with this country.

  20. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Meanwhile Back At The Raunch – The House is debating the extension of the national debt for three months.


  21. I finally got a chance to listen to Ron Johnson question HR. Unbelievable!

    “A simple phone call to these people (those evacuated) could have asertained that there was no protest”…………………”What difference does it make?”

  22. Sorry, I reffered to her as HR (Rodham). Should have clarrified.

  23. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Now let’s see if the House will be tougher on questioning Hillary!?!?

  24. Paul Broun: Obama Upholds Soviet Constitution, Not U.S. Constitution


    Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Obama upholds the constitution of the Soviet Union: “The Constitution I uphold and defend is the one I carry in my pocket all the time, the U.S. Constitution. I don’t know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it’s not this one. I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one. He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer.”

    Hey All,

    Recieved an email from the GOP today asking my opinion on issues:


    If anyone is interested.

    Of course I commented that the GOP ALLOWED Obama to become President, and that it should have been pointed out that Obama has been and still is INeligible.

  26. IB, thanks for the link.

    I gave them an earful.

  27. Today, if bullsh*t was wind, Hillery Rodham Clinton would be a cyclone.

    Who will ask the important questions: It appears no one will ask these questions.

    1. Why was Ambassador Stevens in Bengazi on that night when the embassy was 200 miles away?

    2. Why was he in Beghazi, knowing there was no security or forces to protect him?

    3. What does the Turkey government know about this Benghazi attack that hasn’t come out yet?

    4. Who gave the order to the CIA agents to “stand down” and not attempt to rescue Stevens?

    5. Was this attack being watched on “live camera” at the operation centers at the State Department and White House as it unfolded?

    6. Why wasn’t an effort made to get military aid to the compound?

    7. Who made the decision to sacrifice the people at Bengazi? Was it Obama….. or was it Clinton?


    It’s that simple, but no one seems to see through this fog of war “smoke screen” Clinton is putting out today. So nothing will happen. Nothing was accomplished today…nothing will happen tomorrow or the next day….the truth will never come to light. The guilty will never be held accountable..

  28. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Listen to c-span call-in now to get a feedback on the hearings.

  29. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    Now Hear This – Congress is not allowed to give itself a pay raise AND NOT ALLOWED TO GIVE ITSELF A PAY CUT!!.
    As Jack Paar would have said – “I kid you not!”

  30. This is beyond disgusting and evil………………..an ad celebrating 40 years of Roe v Wade……….

  31. The man in this ad appears to be having a “fire side chat” with us, while a Bible appears on the side table. Meanwhile, he’s winking and laughing that millions of babies have been slautered for the past 40 years. This couldn’t be more disgusting or obscene! Happy Aniversery. I think I’m going to throw up.

  32. One more thing before I leave, because honestly I’m sick after watching that video………….

    I used to pray to God to have mercy on our country……….. now I’m inclined to say “Judge us God. We are wicked and evil, and we have passed the
    point of no return.” We deserve what’s coming.

    40 years of murdering innocents is enough.

  33. .Shock claim: Obama only wants military leaders who ‘will fire on U.S. citizens’
    That is….Americans who refuse to give up their guns.

    On Monday, renowned author and humanitarian Dr. Jim Garrow made a shocking claim about what we can expect to see in Obama’s second term.

    Garrow made the following Facebook post:

    “I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.

    So, who is the source?

    Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”

    And you can hear him here:

    Topic: Mr. Garrow relates the warning given to him that US commanders are being polled over whether they would fire on American citizens. Pastor Pinson discusses the fallacies of the Church Growth movement.

    So did I, I don’t believe I’ll be getting a reply. The Republican Party probably believes they are better off without me and the likes of me. I’m positive Tina would believe that.

    The problem is that the Republican Party left ME, I didn’t leave it, and as a man of principle and character, I can NOT, in good faith support this group.

    Just today they extended the debt limit (probably to appease the annointed one’s pouting at the presser), WITHOUT getting ANYTHING in return.

    Now someone inform me…………………what is the GOP’s bargaining chip for the spending cuts the Democrats promised?

    Right, they have NONE and the spending cuts will be kicked down the road for another period of time.

    Our Government is a joke, but the JOKE is on us.

    I haven’t seen it yet, but I understand Rubio threw Hillary soft balls today.

    Probably won’t even bother to watch the Senate version of the “interrogation of Hillary on Benghazi”.

    I’d be wasting my time.

    I READ the report, and the report itself is a joke. The “investigators” NEVER wanted the truth.

    I would suggest that this is exactly the reason Hillary had that “emergency”, and couldn’t testify.

    They were programing her on what to say.

  37. Interested Bystander


    People do NOT understand that men and women are INSTINCTIVELY different.

    Men are INSTINCTIVELY protective of women.

    Women are INSTINCTIVELY nurturing to ALL.

    It’s just the way we are made.

    But with drugs, you can erase the difference between the sexes.

  38. IB says…..”They were programing her on what to say.”

    I’ve only heard one talk show host mention this (Rush Limbaugh) but HRC’s campaign debt was finally paid off sometime last week or this week. I wonder where that money came from, and more importantly, right before the Benghazi testimonies?

    Just food for thought……..

  39. If anybody is interested you might look up what Governor Paul Lepage had to say very recently. Just type in Paul Lepage into your search engine,and hit search. He really got on the LAME STREAM MEDIA’s case. He might outdo Governor Christie.

  40. 37 Statistics Which Show How Four Years Of Obama Have Wrecked The U.S. Economy

    The mainstream media covered the inauguration of Barack Obama with breathless anticipation on Monday, but should we really be celebrating another four years of Obama? The truth is that the first four years of Obama were an absolute train wreck for the U.S. economy.


  41. IB What sort of soldiers will the enemy send into combat against females. He will send his infantrymen in with bayonets fixed,and they will take no prisoners. The battlefield will be SOAKED in FEMALE BLOOD.

  42. I’m really tired after getting up early to watch the “circus” but one of the Republican Congressmen who went after Hilary today made a comment on his facebook page that she WAS under oath contrary to what people were saying on the internet. I think it was the guy from SC.

    BTW, I have been reading Lame Cherry for the past few weeks and am I the only one that has a hard time “reading between the lines”? I feel like I’m not getting what she is writing sometimes….. She seems very smart and hooked into things. Her spelling leaves a lot to be desired, but as the mom of a dyslexic, I know that not spelling well means nothing when it comes to intelligence.

    Good night Patriots!

  43. IB………..
    Unfortunately there are thousands of females carrying rifles which is all well and good,but any female who thinks that she can fight HAND TO HAND with well trained male infantrymen on the battlefield is going to be turned into a DEAD FEMALE SOLDIER in pretty quick order. There is a certain set of females who can’t figure out if they are male or female. When their bodies are collected from the engagement they,along everyone will have learned the very sad answer……….AFTER THE FACT. Using females in combat with an enemy, is the most MORONIC thing imagineable. I am certain that it will happen…………once, and after that NEVER AGAIN. Sadly our moronic upper echelon must learn everything the HARD WAY, and at a huge human cost.

    All of this BS about females in the military is designed to lower the status of American men, and to demoralize American men into believing they are on a equal stage with women. It’s just more BS coming from the enemy, designed to ruin America.
