1,154,000 Fewer Americans Working Today Than 6 Years Ago

1,154,000 fewer Americans are working today than six years ago, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In January 2008, 146,378,000 Americans 16 and over were employed, and now in January 2014, 145,224,000 are employed, a difference of 1,154,000.

91,455,000 Americans 16 or older did not participate in the nation’s labor force in January, meaning they neither held a job nor actively sought one. That’s a 353,000 decline from December, but 172,000 more than November.

The national labor force participation rate — the share of Americans who had a job or were actively looking for one — ticked up to 63 percent in January, from 62.8 percent in December.

Oh Wow, Prison Planet and CNS (Christian News Source). Those are certainly credible news sources.

 

If you need a news source to validate this rather than just looking around you at all the numbers of unemployed working age healthy people that have skyrocketed under barry's tenure then you are a complete dumbass.

Work a little harder. I am retired. 10,000 baby boomers a day are retiring. What few part time oblameojobs you have must support me. I am used to the finer things in life. The booze you supply me costs a lot. I just had a $26,000 surgery paid for entirely by you. You must take care of the aged no matter how much it costs you. Now get off your butt and go get your 3rd part time oblameojob. It is time for the first drink of the day. Hurry up and get going.
