Headline in my morning paper.

New claims fell to 225,000 compared to the 2007/2008 Recession. 600,000 each week.

3 million new jobs created this year.

Last week’s decline was likely accentuated by two big summer auto plant shutdowns.

The four-week average, which smooths out volatility, declined by 4,000 to 282,500

This is a really stupid statistic to forward as a Liberal as if the economy is good.

The reason this number is so "good" is that we have RECORD PEOPLE NO LONGER LOOKING FOR WORK. They are in despair. They have given up.

93,000,000

That's horrible.

I can see why you didn't post a link. There hasn't been 3 million new jobs created this year, not even 1 million.

Retired people aren't "giving up". They just done working. As far as the people who are not working, it is because they don't want to work. I don't personally know one person who is out of a job and can't get work. I guess it is Obama's fault if some people are lazy. What ever the right wing blow-hards say, I am happy that the economy is doing better than it was when bush left office. Some people hate Obama so much that they want America to fail. What a sad group.
