Here’s another 47%. And one that Obama has worked hard for.
Of the 144 million Americans employed last month, only 116 million were working full-time. Friday's report showed that 58.7% of the civilian adult population of 245 million was working last month.
Only 47% of Americans, however, had a full-time job.
In June, the number of Americans who wanted to work full-time, but were forced into part-time jobs because of the economy, jumped 352,000 to over 8 million.
With a majority of the population not holding a full-time job, it isn't surprising that economic growth has been so weak.
Morning, Tim, there are now eleven (11) state where there are more unemployed than those working.

Vet: they (liberals) are not answering many questions at all. Oh, they might post some link from Politico or NBC, ABC, CBC, MSNBC and other left wing media outlets but that is all they have. They have built a house of Cards on LIEs and LIEing to the people. There comes a time when the people backup and take a stand. Why do you think Obama delay Obama Care for a year. Don't think it will work.
He delayed Obama Care because he knew that the democrats would take a thrashing in 2014. The bill is a train wreck and even the democrats are admitting it now. Now that they have read it.

Unemployed Workers Still Far Outnumber Job Openings in Every Major Sector

By Heidi Shierholz | June 11, 2013

The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed job openings falling by 118,000 in April to 3.8 million. Job openings have improved very little over the last year and remain very depressed. In 2007, there were 4.5 million job openings each month, so April’s level of 3.8 million is more than 16 percent below its prerecession level.

The job openings data are extremely useful for diagnosing what’s behind our sustained high unemployment. In today’s economy, unemployed workers far outnumber job openings in every sector, as shown in Figure A. This demonstrates that the main problem in the labor market is a broad-based lack of demand for workers—and not, as is often claimed, available workers lacking the skills needed for the sectors with job openings.

In particular, there have recently been stories (for example, here) of worker shortages in construction. While there may be some construction firms in some places that cannot find the workers they need, the data show that this is in no way a prevalent phenomenon—unemployed construction workers outnumber job openings in construction by nearly 12-to-1. In construction as well as in every major industry, it is work that our labor market lacks, not the right workers

Improvement starts at home with each individual. Lots of big ideas on here. Here is a better one. Lets all just get back to the basics. Many posters cannot even manage their temper in a chat room and expect others to take their big picture ideas seriously. How? Like I said back to basics.

That's silly. I would wager that fewer abortions would occur if fewer men ran away and left pregnant women all by themselves. Do you disagree? You are honestly suggesting men run away because they don't have a say in decisions revolving around pregnancy? Really? "I'm gonna run away because she probably will have an abortion and won't take my opinions about it into consideration." Really?
Well good thing I got you some running shoes ...run

Because there are far more important subjects that require immediate attention. I mean have you not heard who Josh Underwood has gotten pregnant, who's on drugs, who's receiving undeserving government benefits, or even who's has the best looking turtle? Come on folks, get withe program! No one one wants to hear about all that other crap.

WHY---do you and other Liberals continue to go back to GW Bush. We all know he was a Compassionate Conservative (a fancy way to say he was a moderate Liberal). The immigration bill he pushed and DID NOT get is not the same as Obama and company. You going to have to do better than that. Liberal SSS

So, you're admitting that your TEApublicans have flat out LIED when they said they would create jobs, so they could get elected.
Well, it's about time that you faced some reality about the worthless Bunch that you support.

Not only have they not created the first job, they have obstructed everything that Obama has tried to do to create jobs!

And they are draining the U.S. taxpayer for everything they have, so they can take Millions of dollars for themselves and their Staff, such as "catered in Gourmet Meals" at ALL their Offices, not just on Capitol Hill! The TEApublicans live like Kings and Queens, while hollering "austerity" for everybody else that's paying for their "Regal" Lifestyle!
They are the biggest "Moochers" in our Gov't. and they take everything they can get, in enormous amounts of Taxpayers-funded PERKS and do NOTHING for it, but OBSTRUT, OBSTRUCT, OBSTRUCT!

Tell your Congressman that he/she should LEAD by example and be the first to "go back to the basics", if he/she really wants to save the Country money and lower the Deficit!

Let us know what kind of an answer you get!
I'll bet they won't even cut back on the extremely extravagant Abuses of the Perks they gave themselves! In fact, the TEApublicans are milking them for all they're worth, with NO SHAME about doing so, while constantly trying to cut the most basic Needs For Survival for everybody else...except the Wealthiest, that own them!

If you Conservatives vote that bunch of TEApublican Monarch-Wannabes back into Office, you're as crazy as they come and you deserve everything they will do to you, and MORE!
The bad part is that the rest of us will have to suffer, too...but it'll all be YOUR fault!
And don't think we won't hole you responsible for it, too!
