|15 million jobs created so far under the nearly 8 years of Barack Obama's presidency.|
So the jobs report is out for the month. For the month of August the jobs that were netted were 151,000. It gave the country over 1 million jobs so far.
The unemployment rate will stay at 4.9%. It fell below 5% earlier this year for the first time since 2008.
Wage growth slowed a bit after showing signs of momentum in previous months. Wages continue to stall and this is the reasons to why the U.S. economy recovery has not been felt by vast pockets of the population.
America's economic growth has averaged about 1% in the first half of this year. However, experts are hoping that growth will pick up in the second half.
The August job numbers are critical for the Federal Reserve, whose leaders hinted that they could use it as a guide in potentially raising the key interest rate.
When the conservative agitators say that 95 million Americans aren't working, I think about the actual reasons to why people aren't working.
For one thing, if you're not looking at the news lately, you're not noticing the wildfires, hurricane, floods, and tornadoes. You hear about the countless victims of gun violence. You hear about companies cutting
I think about the wildfires in Oregon, California, Wyoming, and Texas. I think about the floods in Louisiana. I think about the hurricanes hitting Florida and Hawaii. I think about the countless lives lost to gun violence in the United States. I think about the disastrous tornadoes tearing up the Midwest. I think about the lack of funding for roads and bridges.
The reasons to why conservatives ignore the real reasons for 95 million people not working.
4. FIRED OUT THE CANNON (LAID OFF/FIRED FROM JOB)
5. QUITTING A JOB FOR A NEW JOB
6. UNDER 16 (NOT OF WORKING AGE)
7. STAY AT HOME PARENT
9. COLLEGE STUDENT STUDYING
10. IN THE IRON COLLEGE (PRISON)
Okay, if you're seriously believing that 95 million people aren't working (just because), then you're a Donald Trump and Mike Pence supporter. If you choose to not factor the obvious reasons as mentioned above, you're obviously a listener of agitators like that old fart Rush Limbaugh, Sean "Softball" Hannity and readers of internet creeper Matt Drudge.
