Obummer & Co. want you to focus on the unemployment rate rather than the fact that for the past 40 months in a row there have been fewer jobs created each month than the number of unemployed people leaving the work force !!
Look at tables A and B at bls site, The jobs are largely retail trade health care and social assistance.
Health Care is not like on TV, but people going home to home taking care of the sick and old ( probably if I had to guess ). Retail trade is likely the people striking at WMT and MCD. There is nothing wrong with this as they actually produce things but the production for the things that are sold or consumed needs to come from somewhere. However, with what they get paid now for part time they won't be buying any homes on the new feudal manors until someone decides the trumps are really not contributing anything. ROFLMFO.
