Well there is a nice spin. August is suppose to be a big employement growth month. Holding steady means we lost ground.

as long as we are upside down with the government spending we are not going to see any improvement any time soon.

Our liberal leaders are working overtime on this.

Will the mindless and thoughtless Obama cheerleaders continue to believe that he understands the economic difficulties facing every-day Americans? I say we encourage him to golf and vacation every day. That way he'll do less harm!

Disgusting on how this state even wants to report these "stats", how stupid is that when we know those numbers are probally off by a bunch, plus we all know with all the cutbacks and future lay-off the rate will climb even more.SEE you all in NOV.

Why exactly is the unemployment rate high in the United States?

Could it be that government unemployment benefits (including health care) is more generous than many employers can afford to pay their own labor?

Could it be that many job applicants are offered employment after an interview but the job is refused because the applicant just wanted the employer's signature that the interview took place (for the unemployment office) and that, as mentioned, the unemployed worker can get more through unemployment benefits?

The United States MUST change its attitude from a consumer nation to a producer nation. One only need look at the fate of some of the welfare states in Europe and parts of Asia to see where the United States will be going if we don't turn things around and fast.

Unemployment statistics, by no means, show us the whole economic picture.

This week the obama's approval rating plummeted to 42%. Maybe Americans are waking up to the fact that NO one in Obama's White House ever even had a job let alone met a payroll.

I am working in Canada (lost my regular job in CA) and I can tell you this, the Canadians are laughing at us with our stupid energy policies. Shutting down our gulf oil operations due to the BP mess was a big economic bonanza for their oil interests. Obama is a complete idiot and has no business running the former world superpower. He has managed to make the position of US President not that big of a deal.

We will get to deal with his minions in November.

Nothing will change. This is the worst state in the disunion. Retards and criminals are in charge---all out for themselves. Community pride and spirit are expressed in who's the top government dog dividing the spoils/loot of what used to belong to the private sector---Before the robber Barons like Lois Locust Wolk came to town.

The rest of the nation hates California and New York. They want the H-bomb dropped on them and they sure as hell hate it's perverse people. Mention "should we pay Califoria's bills?" to an outsider and you will probably be shot dead---and for good reason!

Just mention California to an outsider and you will hear an automatic angry "N" word and "F" word and the F doesn't mean "fornicate" either! The rest of the nation speaks about California the way people speak about disease, pestilence, vermin, etc. They openly talk about kicking California out of the USA, isiolation, containment, marginalization and yes, extermination. Whole congregations pray for God to intervene like he did for Moses (free the taxpayer slaves!) or Noah when mankind couldn't reform/redeem itself. Sodom and Gommorah come to mind. "Lot---you must leave!"---"Don't look back"

Who are you talking to? The outsiders I talk to - upwards of 300 on Facebook, look foward to a vacation here. I haven't heard any calls for our destruction - well, maybe Montana, but who cares about them?

An interview does not have to take place, you just have to look for a job. Looking does not guarantee an interview. All that is needed for UI bennies is the recruiter/HR person's name and the company applied at. You are only entitled to a fixed amount based on your top earning quarter in your last year of employment. Usually around 3/4th of what you made, and no health insurance. My suggestion to you is find the actual truth before you pop off some nonsense. My wife has applied at over 300 jobs, but because companies have backed off the personal recruiting efforts and gone full force internet recruiting, the chances of getting your resume even seen is a challenge. There are thousands of online resumes for every posting. This is what happens when you let technology rule your life. Employers get no idea of the character and overall fit of a candidate before the resume is tossed aside. It does nothing but hurt the seeker and the employer. But, that's another lesson - just chew on what I gave you.

If you actually believe anyone would choose UI over a job, you know less about people, culture, and the political times than my 7 year old. I'm guessing you're another out of touch Christian crusader who truly believes the tea party and their extreme christervative values will hold weight in November. I wish I could see your face on that day!

More than 2.26 million people remained unemployed in California
Meg spends 119 million so far on her bid to buy to state.
You could have given everyone 1 million who is out of work in the USA

Better check your math Chris. According to stats, there are approx. 15 MILLION people out of work in the U.S.

Whitman has spent 119 million, but had she given away one million dollars of that money "per unemployed person" that would only cover "119" people. Try using a calculator and divide 119,000,000 by 15,000,000. See how close that gets you to every unemployed person in the U.S. being a Millionaire.

We are facing the sober reality that Californians made the most destructive political choices available to us.

Now Jerry Brown's election will confirm to the World that Californian's are too stupid to handle self government.
