The economy has seen an "unprecedented" number of long-term unemployed under the Obama administration, according to a liberal think tank, and economists say plans pursued by Democrats in Washington are unlikely to curb the problem.

Nearly 5 million workers are classified as long-term unemployed, while 900,000 more have stopped looking for work altogether, according to a new series of reports issued by the Urban Institute.

Three percent of the labor force has been out of work for more than six months, an improvement of only one percentage point since unemployment spiked in October 2009, according to the study.

"That long-term unemployment would rise during a recession is not at all surprising, but the extent of the increase and its persistently high level since the start of the recovery are both troubling and unprecedented," the report states. "The U.S. economy is now well into its fourth year of recovery, the unemployment rate is below 8 percent, yet the long-term share of unemployment is still near 40 percent."

The center-left think tank said that those startling figures are unlikely to change unless the United States can achieve dramatic job growth, rather than the middling 2 percent overall economic growth figures the Obama administration has averaged.

<quoted text>Thanks to the delayed employer mandate in ObamaCare, we are now sixteen months away from enforcement of those statutes, even though they go into effect in four months. Are employers taking a break from ObamaCare prep? Not hardly. Today we have three new stories about how the perverse incentives of the ACA will impact workers, starting with UPS, which has just announced that it will stop offering health-care coverage to spouses — and explicitly cites ObamaCare as the reason.

United Parcel Service Inc. plans to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere. The Atlanta-based logistics company points to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as a big reason for the decision, reports Kaiser Health News.

The decision comes as many analysts are downplaying the Affordable Care Act’s effect on companies such as UPS, noting that the move reflects a long-term trend of shrinking corporate medical benefits, Kaiser Health News reports. But UPS repeatedly cites Obamacare to explain the decision, adding fuel to the debate over whether it erodes traditional employer coverage, Kaiser says.

Rising medical costs,“combined with the costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, have made it increasingly difficult to continue providing the same level of health care benefits to our employees at an affordable cost,” UPS said in a memo to employees.

HEY MORON!!! WORKING PEOPLE HAD MORE WITHOUT O'BAMACARE.

Once O'bamacare set the conditions for perverse incentives in the marketplace, it doesn’t take long for businesses and consumers to adjust to them.
So?

Liberals are liberals first then screw the country!

It's all the result of poor choices. People have to start making better choices. Subsidizing poor choices only produces more poor choices.
Stop all welfare.
I get it. Now all mothers on welfare are sluts.

Wow,m you just keep digging deeper.

Maybe they had good paying jobs & f*cking idiots like you voted for Bush & put Republicans in charge of Congress where they handing money to the rich, spent unfunded billions, set earmark records, unfunded tax cuts, two quagmire wars leading to the worst GD recession in 80- years costing mullions their jobs

Not all of us can have subsidized careers in the oilfield.

My governor just sent $52 Million down to Detroit to remove trash houses - yep, that's MY money once again being poured into another corrupt Liberal hell-hole.

Meanwhile, the State is going to send Election Observers into Detroit to watch the corrupt blacks during this upcoming election season and wouldn't you know it - they are already crying racism. They now want *FEDERAL* Election observers to come into the hell-hole. Why? Because they don't want a white governor watching them. They want a black brother to help them out.

They have even said as much on local TV News.

Meanwhile....who pays for all of this black BS? Outstate taxpayers and the nation as a whole. Nothing new here!

Like despite Citigroups mounting losses when Lew departed, he received a $944,578 TARP-fueled bonus from Obama?

Unfunded billions... as opposed to unfunded trillions with Obama?

There is no such thing as an "unfunded tax cut", dumbass.

Two "quagmire wars"?
Who were the two enemies in the supposed two wars?
How did those supposed two wars start?
They weren't "quagmires" until Obama started sabotaging them. Before Obama, Al Qaeda and the Taliban were holed up in caves. Today, they're taking over countries. The only thing that changed was the president here.

And, you never identified those mythical "subsidies" to the oil companies.
Tell us about those supposed subsidies.

Here we go again. Dumbwaiter is insisting that Bush did not receive any intel concerning Iraq unless Valerie Plame confirmed it first.

Welfare pays more than a minimum-wage job in 35 states, creating little incentive for Americans to take entry-level work and likely increasing their long-term dependency on government help, according to a new study by the libertarian think tank Cato Institute.
The finds come 17 years after landmark welfare reform legislation that was supposed to move Americans away from entitlements and into the workforce.
However,welfare benefits continue to outpace the income that most recipients can expect to earn from an entry-level job, the study authors said.And the balance between welfare and work may actually have grown worse in recent years.
Among the other findings is that welfare in 13 states pays more than $15 an hour, compared with the federal hourly minimum wage of $7.25.
The disparity was even higher in nine states in which welfare pays more than the average first-year teachers salary and in the six most-generous states, which pay more than the entry-level salary for a computer programmer.
The average expectation can be placed on a family of 4 receiving up to $900 for their TANF allowance. A single person household can expect an average of up to $300.

FT minimum wage pays around $1200 a month.
