    73% of New Jobs Created in Last 5 Months Are in Government

    73% of New Jobs Created in Last 5 Months Are in Government | CNS News


    Shaking off the effects of Hurricane Sandy and the looming fiscal impasse in Washington, the economy created 146,000 jobs in November, well above the level economists had been expecting.


    But the drop came largely from a decline in the number of people seeking work and counted as officially unemployed



    In Friday’s announcement, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said the storm did “not substantively impact the national employment and unemployment estimates for November.”

    Here! You forgot this part!

    73% of New Jobs Created in Last 5 Months Are in Government | CNS News

    By November, according to data BLS released today, the total number of people employed had climbed to 143,262,000, an overall increase of 847,000 in the six months since June.

    In the same five-month period since June, the number of people employed by government increased by 621,000 to 20,559,000. These 621,000 new government jobs created in the last five months equals 73.3 percent of the 847,000 new jobs created overall

    And that's just the Federal government. There are likely some additions to state and local governments also.

    How many threads are you retards going to post on this fiction?

    BLS - "The civilian labor force participation rate declined by 0.2 percentage point to 63.6 percent
    in November"

    Previous 2 months numbers were revised down. We lost ground on employment. The employment to population went down!

    Thank you Mr President.

    -- and, ignore the nutter rw's who want our country to fail.

    They lost because most of American wants our country to dig out of the Bush recession and prosper.
