Unemployment rate March 8, 2013, Labor force participation rate underemployment rate and part time workers reveal truth, Gallup Poll US Payroll to Population Rate Falls Further in February

“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

“Tonight, let’s declare that, in the wealthiest nation on earth, no one who works fulltime should have to live in poverty — and raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour.”…Barack Obama

“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″

***  UPDATE  8:30 EST ***

Just in from the US Labor Dept.

The “rectified” (“1984” reference) unemployment rate for February 2013 is 7.7%.

The BLS February 2013 unemployment rate will be released shortly. Regardless of the stated rate, it will not accurately portray the dismal jobs situation in America.

From Gallup March 7, 2013.

“U.S. Payroll to Population Rate Falls Further in February”

“The U.S. Payroll to Population employment rate
(P2P), as measured by Gallup, was 43.3% for the month of February,
down from 43.6% in January. This also reflects a decline from the
43.6% P2P rate of February 2012, and is the lowest P2P rate since
April 2011’s 43.3%.

Gallup’s P2P metric is an estimate of the percentage of the U.S. adult
population aged 18 and older who are employed full time by an employer
for at least 30 hours per week. P2P is not seasonally adjusted.”

“Unlike Gallup’s P2P rate, which is a percentage of the total
population, traditional employment metrics, such as the unemployment
rates Gallup and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report, are based
on the percentage of the workforce. Gallup defines the “workforce” as
adults who are working or actively looking for work and available for
employment. February’s workforce participation rate was 67.8%, down
slightly from 68.1% in January, but similar to the 67.7% of February

“Underemployment, as measured without seasonal adjustment, was 18.1% in
February, up from 17.5% in January. Still, this is a full point’s
improvement over February 2012, when the rate was 19.1%.”

“The percentage of workers working part time but wanting full-time work
was 10.1% in February, an increase from 9.6% in January, and the
highest rate measured since January 2012.”

“The year-over-year decline in unemployment and stability in the size
of the workforce, on the surface, would seem to indicate an improving
employment situation. Although fewer people are unemployed now than a
year ago, they are not migrating to full-time jobs for an employer. In
fact, fewer Americans are working full-time for an employer than were
doing so a year ago, and more Americans are working part time.
Although part-time work is clearly better than no work at all, these
are not the types of good jobs that millions of Americans are still
searching for.”

Obama is fixing that by making them all part time workers.

    The rectified unemployment percent will be released shortly.
    Have you noticed how similar rectified & rectum are?

  2. Yeah CW….they both seem to be coming from the same place…………

  3. At least they have got Obama’s number in Kenya !!!

    Obama’s Brother Abongo Gets Skunked in
    Kenya’s Election – Receives Only 1% of Vote

    It’s a damn shame the American public was so hoodwinked !

  4. And that 1% was just relatives….lol…word on the street is that Barack voted twice !

  5. citizenwells

    The “rectified” unemployment rate from the BLS is 7.7 %.


    Today from the Steady Drip:

    To cope with the pain and low self esteem of childhood trauma, the ego creates a false Superman. We clearly see the Narcissitic Personality Disorder manifested in the anti social behavior of Grandpa Dunham (naming a daughter after himself, joining the Communist Party), Stanley Ann Dunham (posing for pornographic photos, having sex with older black men, dumping her child), Barack Sr. (secretly keeping two families at the same time, driving drunk), Nanny Evie (dressing up as a woman, engaging in homosexual prostitution) Frank Marshall Davis (joining the Communist Party, boasting of sexual perversion).

    This is why Obama himself is so arrogant, so conceited, so callous, so sensitive to criticism, so dishonest, so immoral, so vindictive, so cold, so cruel, and so dangerous. Like the Frankenstein monster of Mary Shelley’s classic novel, Obama is seething with rage at the society which he blames for the pain of his dysfunctional childhood. Apart altogether from his flawed Marxist ideology and his manifest incompetance, OBAMA IS A RUTHLESS PSYCHOPATH….. the perfect man to lead a nation of dumbed down, degenerate sheep, many of whom are themselves Narcissistic pyschopaths.

  7. I wonder if this increase is due to businesses reducing hours on full time employees to avoid Obamacare and then hiring extra part-time employees?

  8. citizenwells

    Zach, gotta be part of the equation.
    That and only hiring part timers.

  9. bob strauss

    WHITES: 6.8%…
    BLACKS: 13.8%…
    HISPANICS: 9.6%…
    TEENAGERS: 25.1%…


  10. citizenwells

    bob, et al.
    The + 236,000 jobs & 7.7% is very misleading.
    Stuart Varney on Fox this AM did a good job of explaining the real numbers.
    Labor force participation, etc.
    I will recap later.

  11. Former FBI agent John Guandolo claims that the new CIA chief John Brennan gave access to the sensitive information to members of the terrorist organization Hamas and that Brennan might have been turned (recruted) as a double agent while stationed in Saudi Arabia. Now we know why Obama picked him


  12. CW, everything this regime does is very misleading.

  13. Video: Doesn’t Matter Where British Subject Obama Born; Factcheck Confirmed Ineligibility

    It Matters Not Where Bozo Was Born! Gabor Zolna: Bozo’s father was a British subject and the British Subject act of 1948 states that anyone born of a British Subject is themselves a British Subject!…


  14. Sad.

    80% of NYC High School Grads Can’t Read


  15. citizenwells

    bob, it was the sugar in the sodas.
    Mayor Bloomberg is fixing that so I am certain the reading skills will improve.

  16. This very smart move was done today, AFTER getting the “no” word from DOJ. There should be no reason for it not to pass. Also, the pResident would have a hard time vetoing it.

    WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) today introduced legislation to prohibit drone killings of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil if they do not represent an imminent threat.

    “Our Constitution restrains government power,” Cruz said. “The federal government may not use drones to kill U.S. citizens on U.S. soil if they do not represent an imminent threat. The Commander in Chief does, of course, have the power to protect Americans from imminent attack, and nothing in this legislation interferes with that power.”


  17. Still trashing and bashing………..

    Linked from DRUDGE:

    McCain calls Paul, Cruz, Amash ‘wacko birds’

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is continuing to criticize his fellow Republicans for their filibuster of incoming CIA Director John O. Brennan over drone policy. In an interview with the Huffington Post, McCain referred to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) as “wackos.”

    Justin Amash tweeted:

    Justin Amash @repjustinamash

    Sen McCain called @SenRandPaul @SenTedCruz & me “wacko birds.” Bravo, Senator. You got us. Did you come up with that at #DinnerWithBarack?
    2:53 PM – 08 Mar 13


  18. Dinner with Barack? Most likely! The great and powerful “O” probably laid out all the sleaze he has on “The Twelve” at the dinner, (thanks to his wonderful new database) and it probably turned out he had the most dirt on the Siamese twits………..McCain & Graham.

    They protest WAY too much!

  19. Frankly, I think the word “imminent” threat covers a multitude of sins, minor and major. Who decides? The ones who will claim they have “secret” info not available to the public and which they, as usual, will avoid turning over to congress when asked? If they shoot from drones anywhere in this country where there is a likelihood of some suspicious character to their personal dislike other innocents are bound to be taken out as well…..as well as American businesses with such force. We went from getting the bad guys where they plan their dirty deeds in order to make Americans feel more secure to scaring the living daylights out of our own citizens where they now feel they must keep their eyes to the sky in case someone around them may be in for a chase. Give this gang that can’t shoot straight any kind of wiggle room in terms and you will be a sitting duck, again, to their diabolical goals.

  20. What’s he hiding?

    Brennan Doesn’t Use Bible When Swearing In As CIA Chief…

    John Brennan was sworn in today at the White House. He was confirmed as the new CIA director yesterday.

    “Brennan was sworn in with his hand on an original draft of the Constitution, dating from 1787, which has George Washington’s personal handwriting and annotations on it,” according to the White House. He does not appear to have placed his hand on a Bible, a Torah, a Koran, or other sacred religious text as he said the oath.


  21. SueQ,
    I just “let ‘er roll” on a phone call to McCain’s Phoenix office. He and buddy Lindsey make me furious! They are acting like petulant children, and this is certainly not in keeping with the decorum of the prestigious Senate. It is one thing to disagree on such an important issue but it is another matter to be so disrespectful. I guess their true RINO colors are showing big time.

  22. Observer (1:31 pm)
    You are saying the same things I’m feeling re. “imminent”. When you have a dictator ruling over us, you can’t trust him – anything he says or does is usually deceitful.

    Also re. your 2:51 pm post:
    Perhaps his choice not to swear in on any religious text is because he truly did convert to Islam some years back while in Saudi Arabia. If he used the Koran it would be a dead giveaway, and if he used the Bible it would be offensive to his Islamic friends. Just wondering.

  23. Cabby,

    Fully agree! THEY are the ones which cause Americans to look at congress with disrespect! THEY are the ones who cause those who vote Republican to throw up their hands and want to give up! THEY are the traitors to our cause, (and our country) and have no business being in office! THEY are absolutely clueless!

    Strange, isn’t it? Rand Paul’s filibuster was praised by both those on the left and the right……….He is uniting us. Something we desperately need!

  24. Rand Paul’s speech reminded me of Dr. Carson at the prayer breakfast. They both appealed to “our better selves”. These are things we need to hear in government. They transend right and left.

  25. oldsailor80

    I would suspect that anybody just having a surname of “Obongo” would be enough to turn off any potential voters. The name sounds like a really LITTLE,and really NOISEY little drum.. Personally I would probably refer to him as BONGOWURST.(LOP WORST)= BIG PRIC#

  26. That’s good oldsailor…hadn’t thought of it like that …lol

  27. Air Force Brat!

    When all is said and done, who CARES what McCain and Graham think, do or say? They’re a couple of hemorrhoid holders. (Wasn’t sure if the plural of “rectum” would be “rectums” or “recti”, so I went with something equally descriptive . . . 😀 ).

    Ignore Zero’s dinner buddies. And when they come up for re-election, dump ’em.

  28. Maybe Brennan was afraid to touch a religious object because he might spontaneous combust due to his past evil deeds and his upcoming agenda.

  29. I just read that the document, The U.S. Constitution, upon which Brennan swore, did not include the Bill of Rights, which was passed a few years later. Hmmm……….. (Drudge)
