    The government is creating most of the new jobs in America. The private sector is still hurting in job creation. Looks like the unemployment numbers are getting a bump from the part time census jobs. What happens next?

    The economy added 431,000 jobs last month, pushing the unemployment rate down a little, but the government was responsible for most of the new hires as it brought on temporary workers for the massive U.S. Census effort.

    The jobless rate fell to 9.7 percent from 9.9 percent in April, the Labor Department said.

    Payrolls rose for the fifth consecutive month, with May's numbers marking the largest increase in non-farm employment in a single month in a decade, the New York Times said. But only 41,000 of the new jobs were in the private sector and most of the federal government hires were for Census work that will evaporate after the summer months.
    Job Growth Surged in May, but Most Was Due to Temporary Census Hires

    So now I understand why the conservatives hate the constitutionally-mandated census

    It creates jobs

    If we learned one thing during the bush years, it's that conservatives hate to create jobs. They're rather destroy jobs

    I've learned that you have the IQ of a piss ant, Sangha. How did you get that out of what I or the article stated?
    I'm stating that the unemployment rates, and jobs created are just part time government jobs. I'm stating that only 41,000 jobs came from the private sector......this IS the disturbing part of out economic recovery.
    Next time try and comprehend what you read, and take off your partisan blinders in doing so. sheesh
