    The September unemployment situation report was better than expected. The Household Survey showed gains in the labor force, and employment, like expected. The Establishment survey was up--private sector mostly--137,000 of those new payrolls.

    Employment Situation Summary

    Like in Greece, Republican-advoctated disppearance of employment, and default on soverein debt, created the loss of government jobs.

    The compare and contrast is on! Obama-Biden want to better than China. GOP wants to worse than Greece!

    Unemployment Stuck at 9.1 Percent in September; 103,000 Jobs Added, 200,000 lost - ABC News

    :eusa_eh: So no job growth and steady unemployment is good news?

    If unemployment went down to 9% or we created more than zero net new jobs I would totally agree with you.

    However, we lost more jobs and the percent unemployed did not go down so I call this bad news. Yeah it could have been worse but it still isn't good.

    The Greeks were pushed into these crazy loans to upgrade their military. That's what happened.

    Well since so many are looking for a collapse in employment numbers due to government inaction...it hasn't taken place.

    I'm in the mind that the stimulus was far to small and in any case the economy is going to need a lot of tweaking before it gets humming again. Standing flat footed and not addressing the problems..is basically a big problem.

    Considering we have so much infrastructure in disrepair, there is growing need for new green tech, our transportation, telecommunications and energy grids are in sore need of upgrades...this is the perfect time to get it done.

    South Korea has had wireless communications available on their subways for almost a decade. SOUTH KOREA! And New York, just now, wired 30 stops. And that's a major victory.

    Really?

    So, where are all the new "net" jobs created by the wealthy, I mean, "job creators" since the GOP forced Obama to extend the Bush era tax cuts for them?
