April employment report US Labor Dept. BLS May 8, 2015, Media and White Houses lies continue, Unless you are an immigrant jobs lost under Obama not caught up, ADP 169k jobs added, March revised downward, Ask your news source why they lie to you
“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.”…Gallup CEO Jim Clifton
“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
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984”
** Breaking 8:45 AM from US Labor Dept. **
April 2015 employment down 167,000 for white Americans, up 35,000 for Hispanic/Latino.
321,000 white Americans dropped out of the labor force in April and almost 900,000 this year!!
Bet you are not hearing that from the mainstream media!
Contact them now.
It does not matter what the the April unemployment rate and jobs data is.
You have been lied to by the media and White House.
I am always sickened by the regurgitation of jobs data reporting by the media. Even conservative talk radio media.
Doesn’t anyone care enough to examine the data and not accept the reports at face value.
God bless Jim Clifton, the CEO of Gallup who recently called the unemployment rate a big lie.
He is correct!
I was pleasantly surprised to read the following on Market Watch this AM.
“Obama’s policy failures are not merely matters of public perception, but matters of economic reality as measured by his own administration. President Obama’s policies have resulted in slow economic growth and a chaotic web of foreign policy. We all know the data. The economy is growing at just over 2%. The first quarter of 2015 will likely show a shrinkage in gross domestic product. The unemployment rate is at a low 5.5% because millions of prime-age workers have left the labor force, leaving participation rates at 1978 levels. New employment data will be released on Friday that will indicate how the economy performed in April, the first month of the second quarter.
Young Americans, often known as millennials, are bearing the brunt of the stagnant economy. Youth unemployment, at 10.5%, is more than twice the unemployment rate of those age 25 and up, at 4.4%. If Clinton wants to attract large numbers of millennials, she needs to explain how her policies will be both different from Obama’s and helpful to young people. That explanation has not been forthcoming.”
Also from Market Watch May 6, 2015.
For the first time in about two years, the U.S. created fewer than 200,000 private-sector jobs for two months straight, payrolls processor ADP said Wednesday.
The report will heighten fears that jobs creation — which had been the bright spot of late in the U.S. economy — is continuing to decelerate.
The U.S. created 169,000 private-sector jobs in April, ADP said, after a downwardly revised 175,000 jobs were created in March. From a peak of 284,000 jobs in November, job creation has slowed for five months in a row, ADP says.
Another big lie:
“jobs creation — which had been the bright spot of late in the U.S. economy”
Only if you are an immigrant.
If you are a white American, which was 70 percent of the population, you have lost millions of jobs since Obama took the White House in January 2009 and those jobs have not been recovered.
That is why 30 percent of millenials live with family or friends and we have record food stamp use and hunger.
From Citizen Wells April 9, 2015.
“he Obama Ministry of Truth
Tell the big lie and repeat it.
Obama’s White House Council of Economic Advisers crafts the big lie, that a large portion of the drop in labor force participation is due to the aging of the population.
And WhiteHouse.org, in a report crafted by one of the advisers, Jason Furman, a member of the 2008 Obama campaign team, repeats the big lie.
So why was it necessary to devise the big lie and divert attention away from something?
Here is the rest of the story:”
“First let’s address the “February’s strong report “.
From Citizen Wells March 7, 2015.
“Nonfarm payrolls increased 295,000 last month”
“Yet, if you simply look at the data from the US Labor Department you find:
43,000 fewer Whites employed in Feb!!!
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.
It is worse than that.”
Data from the US Labor Dept. for March 2015.
From Citizen News April 3, 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.”
“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.
Don’t take my word for it.
Look it up!”
You already know by now that one of the reasons for the drop in the labor force participation rate is the drop in employment of younger Americans.
The other big reason, that is not being reported (except here):
From Citizen News April 8, 2015.
“Why is the Obama White House erroneously blaming older workers for the drop in the labor force participation rate?
The answer is simple.
Why is this diversion necessary.
To hide the fact that younger and white American workers are being decimated by the Obama policies which include allowing so many illegals to stay in this country and work.
This is important.
The drop in labor force participation is significant despite the attempts by Obama et al to obfuscate the reasons.
However, perhaps even more significant is the number that are not in the labor force and therefore prevent the participation rate and unemployment rate from being worse.
Let’s focus on white Americans, since at the time the youngest members of the workforce were born, approx. 70 percent of the US population was white.
When Obama and the media lie about the job situation the implication is that all the so called jobs being created are dispersed proportionately.
That is not so.””
I will be glad to educate any news source that will listen.
