Dark Side to Jobs report: Big Drop in Hours Worked (Equivalent to 500,000 jobs lost!)
MarketWatch ^| 05-03-2013 | Rex Nutting

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)— The April employment report exceeded expectations, with 165,000 jobs created and a welcome drop in the unemployment rate to 7.5%.

But there was a dark side to the report: Total hours worked fell sharply, and the total amount of money earned by U.S. workers actually declined from the month before.

“Aggregate weekly hours”....As the name implies, it measures the total number of hours worked, which is what matters for sizing up overall growth in the economy.

Usually, we focus just on the number of new jobs created and the unemployment rate, but the number of hours we work matters just as much, if not more, to our economic well-being.

Hours worked in April fell 0.4%, equivalent to the loss of more than 500,000 jobs.

9.5 million Americans have left the workforce during the presidency of Barack Obama, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In April, the total number of Americans counted as "not in the labor force" declined for the first time since December, but that number was still near a record high at 89,936,000.

obama has done nothing but destroy the US as we once knew it. Everybody that has no morals and respect are getting obama hand outs now. His taxing of people with higher paying jobs that went to school and got a great education to better themselves is Moronic. What is there left to encourage our youth to do better for themselves?? There is no incentive for anyone to achieve the most for themselves now because oduma will take it and give it to the sorry ones that will not work. If obama had been a conservative and done the things that he has done while in office the liberals would have hung him by now. Last week I saw him on TV reading scripture from the Bible and he said the word GOD at least 10 times while talking about West Texas. This is the same president that is associated with the libs that had the 10 commandments taken down from all public places and will not allow prayer in school. What a bunch of hypocrites these libs are. Oh! Lets not forget that he and his wife also took up for that GAY basketball player in the NBA and told him that they had his back. LOL! Please mr dictator, stop speaking with a forked tongue. Where are all of these jobs that you promissed the American people? Where is this transparent government that you said you would run? Why is Gitmo still in operation? I could go on and on but I will stop for now. You are a Disgrace to the US citizens.

The U.S. used to be the land of opportunity. If you went to school and got a good education you could get a good job. Now you can have two degrees and lucky to get a minimum wage job. But I'm sure the people on crack couldn't care less because they are living on Obama welfare and foodstamps.

Bravo! Bravo! What a crock of shi-.

You hypocritical judges are the ones doomed to Hell. All you do is sit back and judge the entire human race while fact is, you just snorted your last package of cocaine. What do you want this President to do? Suck on your opinions? You see. That's what sets him apart from your weak ones. Your judgemental characters mean nothing.

This is a free country with equal rights...not just rights for the greedy, cheating conservative party who has been the biggest culprits of the divide. We have a transparent govt. You as-holes watch him go to the bathroom in case you can make a case out of the toilet paper he uses.

He's black. I would have thought you'd gotten use to it by now rather than attempting to justify that you hate him for any other reason.

Youth encouragement? Ask your damn millionaires. You know...kids of the wealthy that are comitting suicide everytime you turn around because being born with a silver spoon doesn't allow a whole lot of room for incentive now does it?

There is no incentive for the lesser fortunate these days, since big business pays them such small wages that it forces them to go to the govt. for supplements.

When are some of you going to stop fighting yourselves? Are you that frickin' stupid?

I was recently in London and what I learned was, the majority are on disability and drawing a check. The first of the month, you couldn't walk for all of them out cashing their govt. checks. It's those of you that suck off the government the most, that complain the most.

Go crawl back in your hole and get a grip. It's people like you the big guys LOVE to take advantage of because your brains are square up your poop shoots.

No dear, you have it all wrong. It's businesses that give jobs, not Obama. Businesses want cheap labor and I don't give a rip how many degrees you have. They still want cheap labor. Those coming out of college with degrees demand a higher wage they aren't willing to pay. As long as they can suck on an illegal with a brain, you may as well rest your case against Obama. Put the blame where it lies and it's in the lap of big business. If you like working for $38/Mo. the way that garment manufacturers are having the people in Bangaledesh working for, then be our guest. Obama doesn't send jobs to Bangaledesh for $38/Mo. workers. Businesses do and when you expect American workers to compete against that, let me know or better yet....YOU go for it. Some aren't that stupid.

I guess you haven't noticed Obama is demanding rewards for the illegal aliens. He wants to keep them here for the cheap labor. That's why he stop deporting them during his first term too.

Does the truth ache that badly? Now tell us. Just what rewards is he demanding and let's be clear, he's NOT wanting to legalize ALL illegals. Do you understand that much? Cheap labor? No, that's what Bush brought about 12,000/Mo. in for, until Az., Ca., Tx. and border states finally got all they could handle...before they started complaining. You could go into 80% of corporate America and find out who is working them. Obama doesn't work them. Businesses do. You know, the same people that supply jobs. Or shall I say, supplies illegals their jobs.

Corporate America is breaking America is what it's doing. They pay low wages and they are sure to pay them just enough so they can qualify for every credit in our system. They practically guarantee it to them. Are you that blind to what really goes on? Are you far too busy blaming Obama for the wind blowing than face the real truth? Do you actually think big corporate America is going to pay you even $10/Hr. when they can get an illegal for $7? Ain't gonna happen and it hasn't happened. They got their illegal workers and their biggest taxcut in history simultaneously from the Bush administration.

Start facing reality and place blame where it lies. Corporate America can't be agreeing with Obama. Why? Because if some are legalized, they then might demand a higher wage since they won't have to hide anymore and big business darn sure don't like that. That's precisely why the wealthy do NOT want any legalized. It has zero to do with caring whether you have a job or not. It has all to do with their fear of possibly having to pay another dollar per hour. Real simple.

Oh, and did I mention there's 600 deaths and counting in Bangladesh from a garment factory burning to the ground where there were no regulations...just $38/Mo. cheap labor for corporate America! Compete against that if you can? Let me know.
