Why Would Americans want to leave the US with such good Improvement in Employment Numbers?Submitted by UpToFreedom on Wed, 05/02/2012 - 08:38
I don't repost much content from blogs, but this, while not surprising, still made my jaw drop...
“Figures never Lie, but Liars always Figure.” It is a big problem to reconcile the perception the government is giving us with the real facts. You won’t hear these coming from any politician or from the agenda-driven main stream media:
- There are 243 million working age Americans.
- There are 142 million employed Americans.
- Only 101 million of the employed Americans are working more than 35 hours per week. This means that only 41.6% of all working age Americans have a full-time job.
- According to the government drones at the BLS, 88 million Americans have “chosen” to not be in the labor force – the highest level in U.S. history.
- The percentage of Americans in the workforce at 63.8% is the lowest since 1980 and down from a peak of 67.1% in 2000. The difference between these two percentages is 8 million Americans.
- The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports there are only 12.7 million unemployed Americans in the country, down from 15.3 million in 2009.
- The BLS reports the unemployment rate has dropped from 10% in late 2009 to 8.2% today. Over this time frame the working age population grew by 5.7 million, while the number of employed Americans grew by 3.6 million. Only a government drone could interpret this data and report a dramatic decline in the unemployment rate.
Any critical thinking human being would examine the data being reported as fact by our government and regurgitated without question by the mainstream media and conclude it is false, misleading and manipulated. What the government says is that 88 million American workers have “chosen not to be in the labor force.” Is that because most Americans are rich in that abundant nation and they don’t need to work?
