..is working out. They seemed very proud before taking this much needed vacation after doing nothing but obstruction and fabricating scandals to announce how by successfully blocking EUC they have solved the unemployment problem and fixed the economy.
“The overall unemployment rate slipped to 6.1 percent in August from 6.2 percent in July, the Labor Department said Friday. This occurred even though employers added just 142,000 jobs, significantly below the 212,000 average over the previous 12 months”
Hmmm..wow so is their “plan” of obstruction working? A drop of .1%..impressive. But…let us look at the whole picture…
“So what caused the unemployment rate to drop wasn’t robust hiring. It was that more people either stopped working, abandoned their job search or never started it. In calculating the unemployment rate, the government counts as unemployed only people who are actively seeking jobs, so those departures caused the rate to fall.”
“Survey of company execs: US pay likely to stagnate”
“WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. workers face a dim future, with stagnant or falling pay and fewer openings for full-time jobs.
That’s the picture that emerges from a survey of Harvard Business School alumni.
More than 40 percent of the respondents foresee lower pay and benefits for workers. Roughly half favor outsourcing work over hiring staffers. A growing share prefer part-time employees. Nearly half would rather invest in new technology than hire or retain workers.”
“The bleak picture facing middle and working class Americans are the canary in our coal mine,” said Rivkin, a Harvard business professor. “Eventually, that will come back to haunt business.”
I wonder if when the GOP gets back from their much needed vacation after doing nothing all year, will still be boasting and bragging how by them successfully blocking all the EUC bills magically cured the unemployment problem..
Yes I know it looks bleak that anything will happen this year but at least some are still fighting for what is right and not totally giving on us yet or bragging and boasting like most of the GOP that cutting EUC magically created all these jobs and fixed unemployment and the economic issues we face.
Looks like the republican plan of obstruction and cutting EUC is not curing the problems like they claim it did. Can’t wait to hear all their boasting and bragging when they get back.
Yeah I know this issue is dead in the water at least until after midterm elections but just thought it would be nice to point out that the GOP plan to get us all back to work and fix the economy by cutting EUC does not seem to be working quite as well as they claim. I guess next time we hear from them they won’t be boasting about how by blocking EUC they magically fixed everything and created jobs.
..you useless troll Chip Chipperson. Do you really think we do not know this is just you being a cunt again? Grow up and get back to your french fry machine LOL !!!!
