Brain washing ways to manipulate numbers. December new jobs created, 74,000 need about 200,000 for UC rate to remain flat. How did UC rate go down? Gov't did not include in their computation the 355,000 people that stopped looking for work. They are not classed as unemployed. They are classed as 'not working' therefore not included in the UC rate.
Economist this morning was reviewing the numbers. He said the UC rate will continue to go down because more and more people will stop looking for work. Plus, he said raising the minimum wage will decrease the number of lower paying job which will increase the number of unskilled out of work.
Plus, he said that raising the MW will cause the price of goods and services to go up decreasing the mkt.
Time to get gov't out of the private sector and let the free mkt take over. Our country is in big trouble. MO
Idiots that approve this expanded budget should realize that they "must borrow about 50 cents of every dollar they spend. You cannot continue to run a deficit budget. Sooner or later lenders call in their loan and you then are probably BK. IMHO.
Where you been? Democrat liberals have been the cause of about 6 million people having their insurance cancelled. ACA is supposed to be very cheap. It is supposed to reduce health care insurance to be at least 25% cheaper. So far my medicare premium has not gone down it has gone up. So has my supplemental. Democrat liberals have screwed up everything.
I am sad to admit I have been a member of this screwed up group for over 50 years. Liberals wants a socialist/communist gov't ..... I want a democracy. And democratic does not mean democracy.
Shame you do not understand that almost every thing pertaining to Ford is directly tied to the world of politics. It would be nice if you got politics/gov't out of the private sector. We need to go back to 'free mkt'.
'needed a burst of acceleration', this is why you have a 6 to an 8 speed automatic transmission to give you the burst of acceleration. I still think the auto engineers are missing the boat.
Maybe it is time to adopt socialism/communism. Maybe we should have gov't created meaningful jobs all across the country. Jobs that pay minimum wage and are mandatory. Everyone works for his keep. Jobs can be street sweeping; stream cleaning; park cleaning; hand shoveled snow off the high way; cleaning unde brush from the forest; etc etc and etc. No workee, no food stamps; no low cost housing, no medical, no dental, no optical , no etc etc and etc. We will raise the taxes on sport stars, actors, rock and rap musicians, etc.they do not need that much money.
This will eliminate all of the poor and hungry. Think about it.
This could be the truck of the century especially if Ford can increase its mpg efficiency. I still cannot understand why a car or a truck cannot have a high mileage gear for low load-interstate driving. I know all of the engines produce enough HP to do this on the level interstates. I do believe it is possible.
Where you been? A long time since you could make a phone call for a dime. Try to reverse the charges? If accepted, can you believe it now costs $10/minute.
43 years ago, gov't was not quite as bad. You must of had more money to start than we did or family members that worked for nothing.. Our business advisors believed we would be in more trouble with the gov't than the start up business would be worth.
But, you may be correct we quit too easily.. Rules and regulations are drive killers.
My dream killed.
A friend and I had thought about starting a little business, neither of us have much money but great ideas. Between the two of us we have enough to open it but we can't do all of the work. We will need at least 2 other people to work for us. We know 2 or more people that would work for us for much less than minimum wage, but if we try to open and word got out that they were working for less than MW my partner and I plus the 2 employees would be fined or go to jail.
After a big conference with my partner and the 2 potential employees we have decided not to try to start the business.
Gov't rules and regulations are nothing but job killers especially for any small business.. Think about it.
On the news channel this morning: 38+% of the American work force is unemployed. This does not say much for this WH administration. Our economy is in big trouble.
I suggest you better take a good fast look at this administration's policy for raising taxes and costs. True you hear tax increases and decreases for the rich, but you are not paying attention to the rate of tax increases on the fixed income people and the low and low middle income people. RE estate taxes for this group just went up 10%. Minimum wage going up, all goods and services costs going up. Utility costs all up. You need to worry about this Gov't wants more of your meager income. MO
Obama's WH administration cheers loudly about private job creation, last month 74,000 new jobs created. Did you know or realize that there is about 225,000 new youth entering the labor mkt each month, plus an unknown number or illegal aliens.
Obama and his liberal/progressive/socialist gangs skip these facts. . Things are not a rosy as this administration paints.
You can blame the weather, but I believe it is because of the 50,000+ new rules, regulations and laws the gov't has passed in the last 6 months.
Gov't is the biggest negative factor for job creation. IMHO.
Every ones income is adjusted when the gov't mandates an increase in wages and benefits, BUT THOSE ON A FIXED INCOME. Seniors that receive just a SS check are just about considered to be on a fixed income. Gov't increases the SS check by 1 to 1 1/2%, this does not even cover the cost of Medicare increase. I MHO
What irked me was GM raised the price to pay for the rebates.
Car dealers are pretty smart-most buyer don't think when they want a new car. .
want to raise the minimum wage of low paid workers to give them more money to spend. No one mentions the millions that are poor on fixed incomes to increase their income to give them more money to spend. Gov't mandates wages, why don't they mandate increases in fixed incomes. SS average is about $1,100/month and is just about a fixed income, they need the same kind of raise as poor workers. The powers want to raise poor worker benefits by 30% by mandate, they can and should do the same thing for fixed incomes. MO Shame on the president and congress.
Starting salary in the army is $1750/month is a day one private which includes room and board, clothing, medical, dental, optical, and travel pay. Not bad.. The salary for enlisted men goes up to $9,500/month for M/Sgt with 20 years. Eligible to retire at half pay after 20 service. Officers make a bunch more. Not like it was when I joined, $67.50/month. and I found myself on a plane headed to Korea, war had just broken out.....,
