    Job creation slows again in April; jobless rate dips

    The U.S. economy generated fewer jobs than expected in April, but the unemployment rate dipped slightly and data from prior months was revised upward, painting a murky picture of labor market conditions.

    It was the second straight month that hiring slowed in the U.S. and it raises concerns, six months before Americans go to the polls to choose either President Barack Obama or his Republican challenger Mitt Romney as president, that the nation's job-creating machine is sputtering.

    The Labor Department said Friday that non-farm payrolls rose by 115,000 last month, much lower than the consensus estimate of about 165,000. The jobless rate slid a notch to 8.1 percent from 8.2 percent, as more people left the work force.

    The gubmint quoted rate is down.

    The number of people unemployed in America actually went up. The economy must create at least 125K jobs to keep pace with population growth, alone.

    Why is it that every damn month we must explain to liberals yet again how those numbers are calculated? Do we really have to spell it out again in detail or is saying "discouraged workers" enough?

    People left the workforce. Check your definitions and you'll see the difference.

    Wrong.

    Employment is down.

    We dont know, nor do we have a way to find out what the unemployment numbers are.

    But, when we see that employment is down? It does not require a rocket scientist to knoiw that unemployment is up.

    And yet....companies are, instead of hiring, still laying off employees. And we are expected to believe the economy is improving and that unemployment is going down? Not sorry to say....most Americans aren't that stupid....to believe the PR and propaganda coming from the WH and their water carriers, the mainstream media.

    I am one of millions of folks that just gave up after looking for two years for another job. It's just not out there. And again, I keep hearing reports of other companies laying off hundreds of employees. And Obama is gutting the military and bringing troops home. Does anyone really think those military employees will be able to find a job now? Hell no. They will join the ranks of the permanently unemployed and of those without hope of finding a job as long as Obama and the Socialcrats are in power.

    ABO in November!!!

    People don't really matter.

    How the left feels about unemployment is really what matters.

    So what if less people are working. So what if a million less people are paying federal income-taxes. Obama is set on raising taxes on those of us that are still working Jan 1st to the tune of $500 billion come hell or high water. It's done.

    Less people are working and less people are paying state and federal income-taxes, so taxes are going up elsewhere. On property, on food, on everything.

    So what. Those "rich" 1%ers need to get shafted. Problem isn for those who aren't aware.....it's costing all of us big time now.
