550,000 local government jobs are gone, like GOP advocates, since the Great Recession started. For August, overall government employment declined 17,000 even though the State of Minnesota went back to work.

Employment Situation Summary

In a GOP/Tea Party-free, compromise environment, then even the striking Verizon employees would have more likely been employed, the 17,000 government job losses might more easily have been gains instead.

And as for the 550,000 government jobs taking spending out of the stores: Then there is what GOP has been contending, having said "No!" to everything else!

thread title is misleading, to say the least. Government has done nothing to 'get out of the way', which is why job growth is anemic.

The good part of this report is that government jobs are going down, while private sector jobs are in many cases starting to creep up (slowly, but up none the less).

It must really bother you the bills need to be paid.

Hey just print a few trillion more, it did wonders for inflation.

If government really were "getting out of the way" then Obama Care would have been abandoned, Justice Department lawsuits against Boeing and Gibson guitars would have been dropped and the new EPA regulations would have been rescinded. Since none of that happened? The Obama Administration is still "in the way" and they are still responsible for what's happening with the economy.

The Labor Department's monthly report is the worst showing in a year and offers stark evidence that hiring has stalled. About 14 million people were officially unemployed in August, and many of those who do have jobs saw their weekly hours trimmed.

I wonder if Rick Perry will take credit for creating half of the zero new jobs?

I don't think republicans who have lost their jobs--are real happy with this report--but nice try anyway--:cuckoo:

Here we are in the summer--typically the busiest season of the year for job growth--and Obama goes on vacation--(like he did last year)--announcing he had a new jobs plan--that obviously flopped last year--and then waits to announce this year's plan (after he takes a vacation) first.

The Establishment Data likely reflect an old population from which jobs have been lost. Anyone knows that reports and filings are not always timely. The Labor Department even does statistical downward revisions in the current report--from June and July. There has to be a population from which to draw a sample of payrolls. In what follows, some of the report can be a statistical abberation.

The Household Survey, also in the Labor Department report, found an increase of 300,000 jobs in their different sample of households. So the population differences, from which the samples are drawn, may also be reflected in the reporting. Government employment is easy to track, for example. No state governments get newly created on a monthly basis. New ventures, however, do get created. Old ventures do disappear. California, even, has yet to disappear. Texas has yet to burn to the ground. Parts of Vermont are likely even still above water, even now. Mainly, Atlantis is gone: And is likely not in the Establishment data--or in the Households data.

Mostly, state and local governments have not been a part of the Recovery from the Great Recession. Instead, State and Local Governments have been "getting out of the way" of any great Socialist Progress from the Great Recession.

The Republican Agenda, which GOP so far seems to plan on selling: Is already shown to be a failure. Governor Perry's Texas, in fact, clearly prospers from the Socialist Interventions in their state. Governor Romney's state is famous for ObamaCare.
