UNEMPLOYMENT IS DOWN FROM 10% TO 7.3% UNDER OBAMA.....STOP LYING, TEABAGGERS
You can argue your position, and you are entitled to you, but you are not entitled to you own facts.
It's very sad to see the level of racism still on display on this message board by user names like this naplesflorida cretin. Such a shame here this week during the 50th annniversary of Kennedy's assassination, that we still have this level of crude racism alive in American. Kennedy was also threatened by the previous version of early Tea Party wackos who actually threatened charging him with treason. Sound familiar with Obama transposed for Kennedy today.
Again, Yahoo should police these boards for honest discord.....and rid all of us of this disgraceful racism.
The labor participation rate peaked in the late 90's. It's been falling ever since. The rate has been falling faster lately because the baby boomers began retiring in record numbers a few years ago. This trend will continue for about the next 20 years.
It is down from over eight percent, but much of that comes from people who have stopped looking for work, rather than people who have found jobs, Of those finding jobs, part-time jobs are a high percentage of those individuals. Your also leaving out that many people are being moved from full time job status to part-time. Despite the trillions of printed money, and that stimulus package, the economy is still doing poorly..
If it's as you say how come the stock market is at all time highs? How come shopping parking lots are always full. How come resturant lines are long? I'll tell you why! The tea bagger's are lying to America and the gullible believe them.
