THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION -- NOVEMBER 2012

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 146,000 in November, and the unemployment
rate edged down to 7.7 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today.
Employment increased in retail trade, professional and business services, and health
care.
....

Household Survey Data

The unemployment rate edged down to 7.7 percent in November. The number of unemployed
persons, at 12.0 million, changed little.(See table A-1.)

Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (7.2 percent), adult
women (7.0 percent), teenagers (23.5 percent), whites (6.8 percent), and Hispanics (10.0
percent) showed little or no change in November. The unemployment rate for blacks (13.2
percent) declined over the month. The jobless rate for Asians was 6.4 percent (not
seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.(See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)

The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 4.8 million in November. These individuals accounted for 40.1 percent of the unemployed.(See table A-12.)

53,000 retail workers and 23,000 service and hospitality workers. That is 52% of the new jobs as people working at Wal-mart and Burger King. Another 20,000 in health care (most of those are low paid nurse aides). Another 13,000 in wholesale trade (which is another field with many low paying jobs). That means 52-75% of the jobs created in November were low paying jobs.

Isn't that what you Republicans want? You want the unions out of the way, you don't want employers forced to offer health insurance - hell, you right wingers want everyone to make under $10 an hour with no benefits.

Then you complain because people need government assistance.

You wingnuts are nuts.

Seasonal holiday jobs. The jobs always get a bump in November, and a drop in January.

The Obama Administration celebrates cooking the books on the unemployment numbers. What is not included in the Press Release written by Obama employees is that 544,000 dropped out of the labor force. The official BLS Labor Force Participation Rate is now down to 63.6%. 88,883,000 have officially dropped out of the job market in total.

Again, the stupid Slewster is just babbling. I said you made $13.75 before you were fired but then you told me that was wrong. So I adjusted what I said you made.

I am not the one trying to make low paying jobs created under Obama look like a good thing. Has flipping burgers or stocking shelves ever paid a living wage?

So Slew and Co are saying that the Republican anti-union sentiment drives the creation of service, hospitality, and retail jobs?

P.S. It's funny that Slew seems to be focuses on the random burger joint I picked. Would it have been happier if I said McDonalds or Hardees?

Now I see why Slew Jumbo was spamming those song lyrics.
