It's time for some more job/economic numbers
August Job Growth (private sector)
July Job Growth
(includes public jobs as well as private sector)
this number does not reflect public sector lay-off/furlough/firings ....
(estimated 10,000 of these throughout the nation)
Nor do I suspect does it reflect losses of part-time workers which generally do not get counted until they look at the "under-employed"
number of lay-offs
(if only this would mean that there were so few the months before that just a few jobs meant a big percentage jump - but unfortunately it means that there were HUGE numbers of people out of work)
July unemployment rate
Unemployment Rates YTD
So let me ask ...
How's that CHANGE going?
