( CNSNews.com )– Excluding January 2009, the month when Barack Obama was inaugurated, unemployment has stayed above 8 percent, which is longer than under any other administration since the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) started measuring the monthly jobless rate: Over 8 percent for 43 months during Obama compared to a total of 39 months above 8 percent between 1948 and 2008.

Over the course of 50 years, the unemployment rate in the United States was above 8 percent for a total of 3 years and 3 months; under Obama alone, the rate has been above 8 percent for 3 years and 7 months.

Also, no other president presided over three consecutive years of average annual unemployment of more than 8 percent before Obama, according to the BLS data.

Thats funny Karl.Tell me.
How many comments have you made on your page ?
And how many times did you comment when no one was listening?
And how many in a row do you do on your page ?
LOL..
Its so funny you would act just like obama and blame me for what YOU DO..
LOL..More lefty deflection..Cant argue facts Karl. This is the worst president in history and its just getting worse because he was able to rally the stupid people.

Everything the right said would happen is happening..And obama still wants to blame anyone but himself..Its all his doing.He was the problem the last four years and will be the problem the next four..

The biggest problem is in order for obamas plans of redistribution and fairness to blacks will have the need for black people to get jobs someday and that just isnt going to work because the parents wont even keep their kids in school...You are depending on him and he cant deliver and he depends on you and you cant deliver..

It will take working people to make it all work.

I will still have work because of knowledge and experience but your people wont.Nothing will change for you.

And I expect to hear from you at tax time.lol.

Number of Americans seeking unemployment aid rises

Published December 20, 2012

Associated Press

The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits rose last week by 17,000, reversing four weeks of declines. But the number of people seeking aid is consistent with a job market that continues to grow modestly.

Unemployment claims rose the week of Dec. 15 to a seasonally adjusted 361,000 from a revised 344,000 the week before.

The less-volatile four-week moving average fell 13,750 to 367,750, lowest since late October. Applications had surged in early November after Superstorm Sandy, then dropped back.

Just over 5.4 million people were receiving some type of unemployment benefit the week ended Dec. 1, down from nearly 7.2 million a year earlier.

Applications are a proxy for layoffs. So the drop of the four-week average suggests that companies are cutting fewer jobs, even if they aren't hiring enough to lower the unemployment rate significantly. The economy has generated an average of 151,000 jobs a month in 2012, not enough to significantly drive down high unemployment.

The unemployment rate did drop to a four-year low of 7.7 percent in November from 7.9 percent in October. But the rate fell mostly because unemployed people gave up looking for work. The government counts people as unemployed only if they're actively seeking jobs.
