Unemployment does not mean the the percentage of working age people not working. Unemployment means the number of people filing for unemployment but are still looking for work. Therefore, it is innacurate. People that stop looking for, discouraged workers, do not count towards unemployment. There are many factors that disqualify people to be counted. So lets look at a figure that is more accurate. </p> <p><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/uOyXKyG.png"/></p> <p>This is the civillian labor force participation rate This is the percentage of working age people that are curretly employed. You may note. That this is slowly declining despite unemployment being lower. As far as the jobs created. I have a response to that as well. I would also like to point out that under Bush, unemploymeny hit an as below 5% while the labor force participation rate, also remained high.</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://data.bls.gov/generated_files/graphics/latest_numbers_LNS11300000_2003_2013_all_period_M04_data.gif"/></p> <p>Also a large portion of the jobs created are part time work, because companies can not afford Obamacare and a large degree of economic.</p> <p><a href="http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/05/04/jobs-m04.html"></a><a href="http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/05/04/jobs-m04.html"></a><a href="http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/05/04/jobs-m04.html"></a><a href="http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/05/04/jobs-m04.html">http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2013/05/04/jobs-m04.html</a></p> <p>Now what were you saying about Obama creating jobs? Because <strong>fewer people are working than when he took the presidency.</strong></p> <p>Yes, I will be an asshole and say Obama didn’t create jobs.</p> </blockquote> <p>The Benedict gif (<span>❤) + sassy use of “Learning time” + facts = the perfect storm.</span><span><br/></span></p></blockquote> <p>I like the second image where they try to act like Obama maxed out at 9.5% when he actually hit 10%. Also that they not it was pre-midterms … So I guess unemployment went down when the GOP took over the House after the midterms, huh. </p><p>Is 7.5% the new normal? Something we’re supposed to be grateful for? At one point people were complaining when Bush had 5-6% unemployment (technically full employment) and had “only” created 4 million jobs. They’ll never be satisfied if it’s a Republican. </p><p>Fuck off. OP and America.</p></blockquote> <p>Yeah — they pulled this on Romney, too, about job creation while he was governor. It’s hard to “create jobs” when everyone already has one! Lies, damn lies, and statistics…</p></blockquote>
