Thank you Mr. President:

Thanks Mr. President
 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

Thank you Mr. President:

Weekly jobless claims rise. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 5 years ago -

LOL we're all living in the matrix. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

Red pill or Blue pill? 

them --- 5 years ago -

Thank you Mr. President:


LOL. We live in a market based economy, not a dictatorship.

A little thing called Obamacare killed real job growth because it made hiring people wildly more expensive for employers. Not the smartest thing since the country was in a recession.

Even though the American people said NO to Obamacare in 2010 it was pushed through Congress before the newly elected Republicans took control again. 

Karras --- 5 years ago -

Unemployment at 4.9%, yet GDP has never cracked 3% under Obama and interest rates are at 0.

If the economy was growing, and people had good jobs (not part time jobs which is included in the report), then interest rates would have risen. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

Shhhhh......... that's not in their talking points. You'll confuse them with real math and facts. 

Not KU --- 5 years ago -

Good point.
We still have state republican opposition to lots of shovel ready jobs the president tried to get support for.

Like it or not. If one considers who is going to win. That is where the state vote should go as well. The grid lock we have endured has got to stop.

Bet your bottom dollar I voted blue. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

Wow. Can anyone decipher that?

LMFAO!!!!

Wayne is now to be referred to as "Chrissy Snow".

This was after the poll attendant drew a little box with the word "blue" next to it for him and patted his head. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

Crayon and all.

No point in it. Logic and you soup have nothing in common.

Thanks, Chrissy. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

Wow. The hits keep coming. 

Kingofthewoods --- 5 years ago -

Such Spin so that Obama can have a "legacy". Everyone knows there are more hires for the holidays - Temp part time jobs. There we go again, more part time jobs! Oh, lets lie and pretend more part time jobs are the same as more full time jobs and lets not count all the people who have given up!

Name one.

"While today's headline jobs print was somewhat disappointing, with the Establishment Survey missing the expected print of 173K, rising by 161K, it was offset by upward revisions to previous months. But while the quantitative headline aspect is open to interpretation, the qualitative component of the October jobs print was - just like in the case of September - all too clear: it was ugly, again.

Recall that in September, the Household Survey revealed that the number of part-time workers soared by 430,000 as full-time workers actually declined by 5,000. The trend continued in October, when another 103,000 full-time jobs were lost, which was offset by a 90,000 increase in part-time jobs. In other words, the transition to a part-time worker society appears to have resumed after a hiatus.


The same series on a historical basis, shows that full-time jobs have been giving way to part-time jobs in recent months as Obamacare starts to bite, and as retail hiring picks up a the expense of all else.

But perhaps even more troubling than the breakdown in September job quality, was another seldom-touted series: the number of Multiple jobholders, or people who are forced to hold more than one job due to insufficient wages or for other reasons. It was here that the red flashing light came on because when looked on an actual, unadjusted basis, the number of multiple jobholders rose to 8.050 million, the highest number this century.


The begs the question how many of the 161K jobs "added" were double counted as a result of the ongoing rise in the number of multiple jobholders.

So yes: overall job growth continues to chug along - and paradoxically wages continue to grow - if at a modestly disappointing pace at least in October, but the quality of the added jobs remains woeful.


Thanks Obama

No point in it. Logic and you soup have nothing in common.?

Really...you are going to say you used logic to vote for the only candidate in US history to be under not ONE but TWO Federal investigations.

Don't use logic..they won't understand it. 

Butterbean --- 5 years ago -

Thank you Mr. President. Thank you very much. 

BestOne --- 5 years ago -

Thank you Mr President for the 94,000,000 unemployed/under employed people of the US. 

Butterbean --- 5 years ago -

Thank you, Mr. President. Hillary will get right on continuing and improving the ACA. Thank you for starting the broad healthcare initiative.

Thank you for bringing dignity to the office of President of the United States.

Thank you for being cool under trying circumstances. 

witchywoman --- 5 years ago -

Best president of my lifetime. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 5 years ago -

You're 8 years old?

Explains a lot.

It might help to read the article that's being discussed here. From said article, "October's gains marked the 73rd consecutive month of job gains for the U.S. economy." 

witchywoman --- 5 years ago -

Ad hominem attack by Soup. Typical. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

Thank you Mr President for the 94,000,000 unemployed/under employed people of the US.

...and for never achieving the bare minimum level of GDP growth that produces sustainable job growth

.....and for:

Here is what happened on January 1, 2016:

Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%

Top Income Payroll Tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%

Capital Gains Tax went from 15% to 28%

Dividend Tax went from 15% to 39.6%

Estate Tax went from 0% to 55%

Remember this fact:

These taxes were all passed only with democrat votes, no republicans voted for these taxes.

These taxes were all passed under the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare.


......and thanks for making America less safe than is was before you took office.

The over-selling of Obama and these silly statements are part of the problem. 

Butterbean --- 5 years ago -

Thank you Mr. President.

Maybe some loopholes in the tax codes will be closed, like offshore or foreign investment tax breaks.

LOL. Have you seen the list of Hillary's donors?

Honey, you don't know your candidate very well. 

FNHO --- 5 years ago -

73 months of job growth.

Suck it, Trumpanzee's. Laughing hard 

them --- 5 years ago -

What kind of jobs were created? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

Of course they ignore the job losses and lack of full time jobs due to ACA. 

DatBoyHooD --- 5 years ago -

Labor partricipatiom rate... you were saying good job?

This graph means whatever I say it means.


*Fixed 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

What is that? 

Holling Vincoeur --- 5 years ago -

One undefined graph deserves another... 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 5 years ago -

The first graph has at least one axis labeled and the data points are obvious. Also, it clearly says "Labor participation rate". Your graphic is nothing.
