Not enough to account for population growth.

UE fell because of people dropping out of the labor force.

And the rate dropped must mean more folks are giving up on the Obama economy or have permanently moved onto the dole.

Positive? A 1/3 of the jobs needed to accomodate population growth not to mention Obama's illegals is now acceptable.

Oh well keep lowering the bar Dems.

The labor participation rate is at the lowest rate since September 1981. This is a terrible jobs report.

Also possibly because they think it will hurt Obama's chances in November and they like Romney better.
