got this in my bullet points today..
- Let’s review:
- The 114,000 jobs created in September is below the average created this year, which was 146,000.
- The 114,000 jobs created in September is below the average created last year, which was 153,000.
- The U-6 unemployment number, which reflects the entire labor situation, was basically unchanged at 14.7 percent.
- If labor participation was where Obama had inherited it from George W. Bush, the unemployment rate would be closer to 11 percent.
- Part-time people employment jumped from 582,000 to 8,613,000, the most since October 2011, and the largest one month jump since February 2009. That means the quality of jobs people are finding is dropping.
- And a comparison: During the Ronald Reagan recovery the country average around 275,000 new jobs a month.
- A 7.8 percent today ties Bush’s worst unemployment month.
- Although previous job growth revised up by 126,000, job growth in private sector was revised down by 4,000.
- August 2010: 58.5 percent of working age Americans had jobs. August 2012: 58.3 percent of working age Americans had jobs.
- 38,000 manufacturing jobs lost since August
- Black unemployment January 2009: 12.6 percent … Sept 2012: 13.4 percent.
