US employment data October 4, 2013, BLS statement, Gallup report, Payroll to Population Rate drops to 43.5 percent, More Americans taking part time jobs

“Over the last six months, of the net job creation, 97 percent of that is part-time work,”…Keith Hall, former BLS chief

“11.4%: What the U.S. unemployment rate would be if labor force participation were back to January 2008 levels.” …James Pethokoukis, American Enterprise Institute, June 2013

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″



From the US Labor dept. BLS.
“Statement on release of September employment numbers”

“The Department of Labor issued the following statement about the September 2013 Employment Situation report:

“Due to the lapse in funding, the Employment Situation release which provides data on employment during the month of September, compiled by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, will not be issued as scheduled on Friday, October 4, 2013. An alternative release date has not been scheduled. The Employment Situation release includes the unemployment rate (from the household survey) and payroll employment (from the business establishment survey).””

From Gallup October 3, 2013.
“U.S. Payroll to Population Rate at 43.5% in September”

“The U.S. Payroll to Population employment rate (P2P), as measured by Gallup, fell slightly to 43.5% in September, from 43.7% in August. P2P has declined more than a percentage point from the 45.1% found in September 2012.”

“The percentage of part-time workers wanting full-time work was 9.4% in September, up from 8.7% in August and from 8.6% last September. This suggests the decline in the unemployment rate is actually due to more Americans taking part-time jobs rather than gaining the full-time employment they want.”

“Gallup’s unadjusted and seasonally adjusted unemployment rates experienced month-over-month and year-over-year declines in September. However, Gallup’s P2P rate — the percentage of all adults in the U.S. population who are employed full time — fell slightly compared with August and is 1.6 points lower than it was in September 2012. This means fewer people are unemployed, but not because they found full-time jobs. The percentage of part-time workers wanting full-time work increased last month from August and from September 2012, suggesting that some of those who were unemployed left the workforce or found part-time work, but not the full-time jobs they are seeking.”

  1. Guilford county (Greensbooro, High Point) unemployment rate.

    “Guilford County’s unemployment rate is going down. But just how much, well, that depends on who you ask.
    At first glance, August’s unemployment numbers from the N.C. Department of Commerce are inspiring: 8.7 percent, down from 9.6 percent in July.
    A drop of almost a full percentage point has been unheard of in this economic climate.
    The county hasn’t had an unemployment rate below 9 percent — save for April, after which it shot straight back up again — since December 2008.
    Local economists warn, however, that the data released Wednesday is all preliminary since county numbers — unlike the state and metro numbers — aren’t seasonally adjusted.
    “You really need to see the seasonally adjusted number before you think it’s too much of a drop.”

  2. “Xerox will lay off 2,500 employees”

    “”We have a cost issue, not a revenue issue,” Blodgett said. He outlined the restructuring plan and said Xerox also will use more low-cost labor, meaning workers overseas and those who work out of their homes.”

  3. I’m not normally a big fan of Alex Jones, but in this case, he is absolutely right….a young mother, with an 18 month old child in the back seat of her car, is dead because she ran through a checkpoint during an “terrorist exercise” in D.C yesterday…
    She ran through this check point then the chase was on, not knowing what was happening, she was cornered at a barracade and confronted by no less than six uniformed police officers with weapons drawn and pointed at her….again, she fled…I think out of fear…she had no other reason to to flee…….as she left the scene, many officers were firing their weapons. at her car…..
    She then lead police cars on a merry chase up Constitution Ave….in the process one police car wrecked and the officer was taken to the hospital…….
    Finally, her car stopped, either by something wrong with the vehicle, or voluntary on her own…she exited the car, according to reports and was immediately fired upon many times…killing her…….the police then found out that she had a young child in the back seat……
    Almost immediately after the incident, the media portrayed her as a “terrorist” who was shooting up Washington….which was a big lie…she had no weapons and no bombs in the car….the only “crime” she had committed was running thru a check point without stopping.
    Throughout this entire incident, Washington went CRAZY….people on the streets were confused running back and forth and being pushed around by the police….Congress went into a complete lock down…..speakers on the House floor were stopped midway in their speech and hustled off to “safe areas”……..
    After the unarmed woman was murdered and the all clear was given…our brave Congressional members gave the D>C> police a “standing ovation for their “brave heroic” defense of our nations capitol……
    So ends this tragic incident of a confused woman who apparently fled the police out of fear and paid for it with her life……..

    The first thought that cam in my head after watching this is……..if one unarmed woman with a child in the back seat of her car can cause Washington to react in this spastic manner and with such disregard for human life…..WHAT WOULD THEY DO IF THEY REALLY CAME UNDER A SERIOUS ATTACK?….the death of this unarmed woman was tragic and UNNECESSARY ….the reaction of the police who are to Protect and serve was very “KEYSTONE COPish” and made me stop and think, how would they react to a real threat, if that ever happens…..
    I can only hope this incident is not whitwashed and covered over…a complete and thourgh and truthful investigation should be conducted and if wrong doing was committed by the police who fired upon the unrarmed woman was unnecessary…then they should be held accountable.

    Murder is murder regardless if is committed by the police or a criminal.

  5. This is beyond a doubt, an accurate and insightful representation of the Obama administration……..

  6. SueQ, If you’re on-line, I left you a note on the prior thread.

    RM, I agree that the actions of the police were bad and feel that someone will challenge their “solution”. Surely there will be an investigation and/or lawsuit filed.
    If Alex Jones said that the media jumped to conclusions and called it “terrorism”, I didn’t hear that at all, and I listened to a lot of TV yesterday. In fact, the word was out right away that it was NOT terrorist related. Jones has a way of relating his own hyped-up version of events.

  7. Thanks for the reply, cabby.

    I wonder if after hearing that the only shots fired were by the police at an unarmed woman, would Congress still have heaped praise on the park police for “protecting” them? Maybe I am ignorant of the way these things work, but if I were them, I would rethink.

  8. SueQ,
    I agree!
    OT, but I wish you and others would dial the number for Obamacare – 1-800-382-5768. If you do, the first option is to click “1” if you are calling about Obamacare. Click “2” if not. Someone on another blog clicked “2” and found a porn site. I tried it and found the same thing. WHAT IS GOING ON???

  9. CABBYAZ… ask;
    “If you do, the first option is to click “1″ if you are calling about Obamacare. Click “2″ if not. Someone on another blog clicked “2″ and found a porn site. I tried it and found the same thing. WHAT IS GOING ON???”

    I think it’s just this sick government we now have trying to reprogram the public to think and act as they do….

    This is just my opinion, of course.

  10. Hey, RM and others, I found out that the phone number given is NOT that of the ACA, so someone is scamming the public by using a number that answers “ObamaCare” to attract the unwitting to a porn site. Every odd ball is crawling out of the woodwork these days, or so it seems. Sorry for the wild goose chase.

    Of course, many apparently don’t even know that the Affordable Care Act IS ObamaCare. On TV some on the street were asked which they liked better. “Affordable Care Act” was their choice. They turned their noses down when ObamaCare was mentioned. And these people vote? Little wonder we are where we are today.

  11. I imagine many an unwitting person will call this number or another seeking informaton and (God forbid) the caller will give personal information.

  12. If this article is true, the Obama administration has gone way beyond way the pale…………

    Priests threatened with arrest if they minister to military during shutdown
    In a stunning development, some military priests are facing arrest if they celebrate mass or practice their faith on military bases during the federal government shutdown.
    “With the government shutdown, many [government service] and contract priests who minister to Catholics on military bases worldwide are not permitted to work – not even to volunteer,” wrote John Schlageter, the general counsel for the Archdiocese for the Military Services USA, in an op-ed this week. “During the shutdown, it is illegal for them to minister on base and they risk being arrested if they attempt to do so.”
    According to its website, the Archdiocese for the Military Services “provides the Catholic Church’s full range of pastoral ministries and spiritual services to those in the United States Armed Forces.”

  13. Looking forward to January 21, 2017 when a new POTUS is sworn in and the the Obama minions are rounded up and charged with treason against the United States of America. Let’s start with all those elected and appointed officials who violated their oath to defend the Constitution and the Executive Branch employees who terrorized US Citizens. Let’s convene a Citizens Grand Jury of Veterans of Foreign Wars to hear charges of treason and recommend long sentences for those who trampled our Constitution. We can be so thankful that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is in control and that he will continue to bless the USA if we will continue to praise and bless His Name!

  14. unfortunately Bill, as Col. Sanders use to say………..”Elvis has left the building” WELL……GOD HAS LEFT THIS COUNTRY….. the perverts have taken over and hell will follow………………God help us all.

  15. CitizenWells,
    Good morning. Hope everyone has a good weekend. The acts by the Government to make ‘shutdown’ as painful as possible for Americans says just why we need to abolish Government Unions and why we need smaller Government. Frankly, if it wasn’t for these overt acts of coercion I don’t think I would have notice the shutdown at all.


  16. citizenwells

    Good morning Pete, et al.

  17. Well folks looks like it is time to IMPEACH the IMPERSONATOR at the WACKY HOUSE!…….along with Harriet Reid,and Msssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss. P-lousy

  18. ……….if Congress refuses to act then it is up to WE THE PEOPLE to do what is necessary. As each day passes the infection spreads, and does more damage to our way of life. It is up to you……sit on your duff and it will only get worse,and you will get exactly what you ask for by so doing……BUT DON’T WHINE ABOUT IT.

  19. Does anyone remember reading about the Minutemen in US History Class…….or were you asleep during the discussion?

  20. bye bye, having a computer problem! Back Later! (MAYBE)
