Something is amiss with this report. There are job postings all over the place. There are many jobs -- maybe people have made adjustments in their lives and are no longer looking? They shouldn't be looking at the number of hires but rather the number of open jobs. If one is up and the other down, then the issue is a skill gap, a loss of interest in working (maybe due to extending unemployment benefits) or a timing issue. They should also measure the number of people actively looking for a job (do it by skill type and see how the job seekers' skills line up with the skills needed in the jobs posted. ). I'd bet there is a big gap.
The world is changing quickly. The very rich have finally run out of tricks and the revolutions will begin in countries where such is not an every day event. The working class in all industrialized nations have had enough of the greed and theft of the treasures of their countries. The leaders have to get real! If that is at all possible at this point. Good luck to all every where. Remember your neighbor and stick together.
I hear a lot of name calling side to side on the issues of jobs in AMERICA, and few looking at the past 50 year history of AMERICA . (Profits fuel business,,business fuel jobs ) our form of government is capitalism based on profit ... When I was young pollution laws had to be put in effect to protect AMERICANS LIKE US, from abuses by businesses for profit,, Then is when business figured out it was much more profitable to use the technoligy america had amassed in free enterprise, move manufacturing out of the USA and not abide by our laws and bring the product back in and sell it for the same price and make more profit..Steel industry, then chemical industry The first of a steady procession of jobs (working class people) we are talking about.. No Laws Just currupt governments less overhead more profit, NO IMPORT PENALTIES FOR BREAKING AMERICAN LAWS ,,, SWEET MORE PROFITS...!!!! That is the new normal world order in AMERICA
Yes and they had another system that had no profit. How did that work out comrade?
My friend you are part of the problem NO answers JUST ACCUSATIONS I said nothing of communism and I don't think the founding fathers did,,Oh that is right China is communist forgive me,, and sir I am 100% AMERICAN,,,NOT REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT How dare you... I'll gladly hear what you precieve was untrue BE CAREFUL SOME IN THE WORLD ARE ENLIGHTEND YOU MY APPEAR FOOLISH
Big Business always holds back on hiring, amongst other things, when a Dem. is in office. Their tax breaks come from the Rep. party, so they try to make sure every Dem. is a one-term President
Yet, Texas has completely cut emergency unemployment benefits as of May 12tth, per the Federal Govt We had 2 weeks notice that our income we'd been counting on is gone. I was counting on it to pay the bills while trying to get my own business off the ground. Well, paying bills, air conditioning in Texas, and eating are over rated. Enjoy another vacation in Hawaii Mr. President.!
Obama is not responsible for the cut to your UE benefits. The GOP -- and the GOP alone -- has backed those cuts. Blame them.
You ought to contact the dept. of labor over this. I don't believe it could have been the federal government who took this action, more like Rick Perry. Rick Scott here in FL is trying to pull the same stuff. Pres. Obama has extended unemployment several times over.
If our wonderful government wouldn't have caused or let American companies and jobs go out of our country years ago we wouldn't be in the trouble we are now. For those backing this crook Romney he is or was much of the problems and causes for our companies and jobs to be elimitated. If you don't know he bought up companies in trouble mainly because of the government down sized them which meant laying off workers and reducing benefits by a lot and made millions doing it. Yeah great guy for American's. Maybe the wealthy with 7 or 8 off shore bank accounts and I'm sure it runs into the millions.
According to unaltered labor statistics, there are approximately 88 million able bodied American workers from the age of 18 to 65 out of work. Some are looking for work, others aren't, some are receiving unemployment checks and some aren't. The census told us we have approximately 350 million Americans living today. If you do the math, the unemployment rate is 25%, similar to that of most European nations. If you only count those collecting unemployment benefits, as Obama and the Obama media report, the unemployment rate is around 8%. They leave out everybody else. As unemployment benefits run out, less and less people collect and the Obama media tell us the unemployment rate is going down. THIS IS SICKENING.You decide what number you want to follow.
You are counting as unemployed --- in your 25% rate -- all those who are 18 and over who are in college or grad/medical/law school, and not seeking employment, all those who have chosen to retire before the age of 65, all of those who have chosen to be full time parents ( like Mrs Romney & Mrs Obama, and 1/2 of the women I know...all UE, currently, and not seeking work), all the disabled. That's why some of those folks you are trying to lump into the UE are "not getting checks" -- they don't want to be part of the workforce...and your # is vastly,vastly inflated.
The economy is 'tanking' not sputtering. Give Obama another TRILLION for his SHOVEL READY jobs. Maybe he will get it right this time.
start you own business as my wife and i did,when laid off eight years ago.........dont rely on anyone to pull you out of trouble,including the government.they are working for theyre own causes.............we as americans are on our own,the ship aready sank...........years ago.......the rats arehanging on by the millions ,thinking the government owes them..........wealfare,99weeks unemployed,overpaid government elected,overpaid sports atheletes..............GET ON WITH YOUR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
