The Jobs Situation Now Versus a Year Ago

The unemployment rate in mid-February is 0.8 percentage points lower than it was at this time a year ago, compared with a 1.1-point improvement at the end of January. This suggests that jobs are less available now than they were in January.

More troubling, however, is the surge in underemployment. On this broader basis, current job conditions are barely improved from what they were at this time last year. Essentially, what has happened over the past year is that some people who were unemployed got part-time jobs but are still looking for full-time work. This is not much to show for a year in which many macro-economic indicators showed improvement.

This is likely why Gallup's self-reported spending remains stuck in "new normal" even as consumer optimism continues to hit new highs. Jobs remain the key to getting the U.S. economy moving, and mid-February underemployment results suggest little or no progress is being made in that regard.

I was no fan of the Bush Bailout or the Obama Stimulus for the obvious give-aways to non-job promoting measures, but seriously people need to recognize the *mitigation* that has happened due to them. If that isn't clear enough to a reader, perhaps they need to all get together and create the kinds of organizations that create employment and quit griping about what others are doing.

oh we have to give them two years like we did obama :devil:

That's right. And if we go by any indication the GOP in the House won on the same kind of public sentiment that got them a landslide victory, that's pretty much what many will see: two years. I hope they prove me wrong cause that will mean more Americans will get to work.

In a black and white world, where dimensions exist in 2D, and minds operate one neuron firing at a time, I am sure that is the opposite to culling all kinds of funding for all kinds of things.
