9.1% jobless. What economic recovery?

Rate this post

Yesterday I heard an anchorperson on one of the alphabet TV networks enthuse, once again, about the economy getting better!!!!!!

That’s a lie.

The U.S. economy is getting worse.
This just in from Gallup, the jobless rate is now 9.1%;
“U.S. unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 9.1% in February from 8.6% in January and 8.5% in December.”

“In addition to the 9.1% of U.S. workers who are unemployed, 10.0% are working part time but want full-time work. This percentage is similar to the 10.1% in January, but is higher than the 9.6% of February 2011.”

Gallup adds the 9.1% jobless to the 10% who want full-time work but can only find part-time work, which makes the real unemployment rate a whopping 19.1%.
And if you add to the 19.1% figure the 88 million Americans who are long-term unemployed and are no longer even looking for work, then America’s true unemployment rate is even higher.
Here’s a hint: In January 2012, the percentage of adults participating in the U.S. labor market fell to 63.7%, the lowest level since May 1983.

  1. Thank you for publishing the truth since we can no longer trust the media to expose valid information.

  2. SRM are liars, nothing more. Welcome to Amerika.

  3. Yesterday on Megan Kelly’s show, she interviewed Congressman Duncan D. Hunter R-CA (the son of Duncan L. Hunter). He is trying to introduce a bill that will make the Government tell the true unemployment figure, instead of the manipulated number. He said that it is necessary to make budgetary decisions…

  4. however in idiot america when a liberal newsperson or obama says something whether factual or not to repeat saying it it then becomes true… i am about the 6th best president. the truth is he is probably the 45th best president…

  5. Well, for major Democratic cronies/contributors, all that stimulus $ has been WAY fat…
