That three-letter word, as Joe Biden would say, jobs is the focus of many headlines today, and despite efforts by the lapdog media to spin it, the facts are ugly.
Obamacare and the burden of massive regulations have destroyed American jobs.
From Zero Hedge:
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.
I guess this multiple jobholder thing is what the Jackass-in-Chief Obama is talking about when he touts all the jobs he is responsible for creating, as in “thank you, Mr. Obama, for all those jobs. I know what you mean because I have three of them.
I don’t the news about the stagnant economy comes as a surprise to most Americans. We can feel it, can’t we?
Help is on the way, provided the American people rise up and deliver our righteous judgement against the horrific “transformation” that our first affirmative-action assisted Marxist president has inflicted on us on Election Day.
