Economic report out: Unemployment at record low levels


Recommended Posts

It dropped from an unprecedented low of 5% to 4.9%.

That's full employment. Wages ticked up. The trade deficit went down to it's lowest level in nearly 2 full years. U.S exports at all time high.

When Obama took office, the unemployment rate was a staggering 10% and the economy was a complete shambles.

U.S. manufacturing is cranking due to high exports...Trump says his priority is killing nafta (which Reagan started), and starting a trade war with our trading partners because "they're cheating us".

If Trump's elected, watch the stock mkt crash, our trading partners cancel orders, and our manufacturing ramp down to bare subsistence levels...and that's before he even DOES anything.

Oh. Official unemployment RATE is at record lows. Yes. Workforce participation is, unfortunately, a different story.

There's no clash. The participation rate isn't relevant, that's why it's not announced.

People retire, go on disability, die, enroll in school...that's life.

THE ECONOMY IS IN GOOD SHAPE!

" The labor force participation rate dropped a tenth of a point"

 

Ooohh...people are getting older! Obama did it!

So first the moron says the number wasn't reported, now he ridicules it.

It's amazing the fucking ignorance of you liberals.

We'll have to agree to disagree. People without jobs is relatively important, IMO.

'unprecedented'? Hyperbole much?

 

Perhaps in the last 8 years....

The question becomes IF millions actually found REAL employment meaning a sustainable wage at nothing less than $64,500?

 

Minimum wage needing food stamp assistance and other social services is not real employment it's just busy work.

 

Just so we all understand we do not have enough facts.
