Reality "unemployment rose"


It makes me sick when I come online and see the spin.

The economy is horrid and Obama is standing in front of people this morning acting like its great.

What a disgrace to our country.

If the economy added 171 000 jobs, then it would be a lie to say anything else than "jobs added".

Do you know why the UE rate rose?

Because more people are looking for work again. Why are more people looking for work again?
Because companies are clearly hiring again.

I know this may sound counter-intuitive but, this is how things work in the real world.

7.8% - 7.9%

If you don't have a job you are looking for work. This is how things work in the real world. If you dont understand numbers being bigger or greater than another then I cant help you.

"The unemployment rate rose to 7.9 percent from 7.8 percent in September. That was mainly because many more people began looking for work, and not all of them found jobs. The government uses a separate survey to calculate the unemployment rate, and it counts people without jobs as unemployed only if they're looking for one."


US economy adds 171K jobs; rate rises to 7.9 pct. - Businessweek

Last months jobs were lost, but the unemployment rates dropped, and liberals celebrated that anyways.

Both figures are mentioned in EVERY report I have seen, so what it is that is making you sick about the "liberal media"?

You not understanding the figures is another issue.

Private Sector Jobs Added: +4.7 million (during the 32 months).

That is more jobs added than in TEN YEARS before that.

Not true. Lots of people had stopped looking.

"The August jobs report sent chills through Wall Street and Washington because of one eye-popping number: 368,000 Americans gave up looking for work."
