May employment report truth not hype from Citizen Wells, 2 million White Americans not in labor force since Obama took office, Only 13k white employments added in 2015 after huge drop, We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell
“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
“Of the approx. 6 million new employments since Obama took office in January 2009, 4,511,000, 75 percent, were Hispanic/Latino!”…Citizen Wells
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″
We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.
Even the talk radio station, 94.5 that carries Beck, Limbaugh and Hannity regurgitated the same old crap from the mainstream media about the jobs report.
I am here to present unreported facts.
The real employment situation in this country.
As noted above, there were 2 million more White Americans not in the labor force since Obama took office and only 13,000 white employments added in 2015 after a huge drop.
Also, by looking at the US Labor Department historical tables, one finds. Comparing May 2008 to May 2015:
Over 9 million more White Americans not in the labor force.
An employment to population ratio drop of 3.2 percent.
Approximately 1.5 million fewer White Americans employed.
A 3.4 percent drop in labor force participation rate.
A almost 6.4 rise in White civilian noninstitutional population.
A big rise in employee age population and drop in employment.
Why is this happening?
From Citizen Wells May 7, 2015.
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.”
“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.”
“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!”
From the Center for Immigration Studies February 2015.
“For Every New Job, Two New Immigrants
Since 2000: 9.3 million new jobs, 18 million new immigrants”
“Government data collected in December 2014 show 18 million immigrants (legal and illegal) living in the United States who arrived in January 2000 or later. But only 9.3 million jobs were added over this time period. In addition, the native-born population 16 and older grew by 25.2 million. Because job growth has not come close to matching immigration and population growth, the share of Americans in the labor force has declined dramatically — a clear indication there is no labor shortage. Despite this, Congress is considering proposals to increase legalimmigration even further; and during the last Congress the Senate actually passed the Schumer-Rubio bill (S.744), which would have doubled legal immigration and legalized illegal immigrants.1 Congress’s disregard for the absorption capacity of the U.S. labor market has profound consequences for American workers.
- In December 2014 there were 18 million immigrants (legal and illegal) living in the country who had arrived since January 2000.2 But job growth over this period was just 9.3 million — half of new immigration.3
- Between two-thirds and three-fourths of the new arrivals are estimated to be legal immigrants.4 Of the new arrivals 89 percent were potential workers 16 and older.
- In addition to the 18 million new immigrants, the native-born working-age population (ages 16 to 65) grew by 16.5 million since 2000; if we count natives over age 65, total native population growth was 25.2 million since 2000.5
- Job growth has not come close to matching new immigration and natural population increase; as a result, the labor force participation rate (the share working or looking for work) of native-born Americans 16 to 65 shows a significant long-term decline.
- The share of native-born Americans 16 to 65 in the labor force was 77 percent in December 2000, 75 percent in December 2007, and 72 percent in December 2014.6
- The number of working-age natives not in the labor force (neither working nor looking for work) increased by 13 million from December 2000 to December 2014.7
- If we look at the period after the Great Recession began, 7.8 million new immigrants arrived from 2008 to 2014, yet net job growth was just two million from the beginning of 2008 to the end of 2014.8
- If we look at the period before the Great Recession, from January 2000 to December 2007, 11.1 million immigrants arrived and job growth was still only 7.3 million.9
