Most Americans will believe we are making positive progress on the unemployment numbers because the reported unemployment rate dropped from 7.4% to 7.3%. These are the headline numbers. These are the numbers the Marxist/Progressives will tout. These are the numbers the uninformed American public will hear. They will not look or find out that the numbers for the last two months were reduced downwards which is very common with this regime. Revisions have always been downward and many times drastically. The American public will not find out that again the largest number of reported hires were part time hires and in the service sector.
They will not be told nor will they search for the real numbers that reflect employment and that reflects the state of the economy, which for a capitalistic economy is pathetic, but for a Marxist/Progressive economy is just fine. The critical numbers are these. The number of Americans who actually held jobs during August dropped 115,000 from July. The simultaneous decline in both the unemployment rate and the number of people with jobs was possible because the "labor force participation rate" dropped to 63.2 percent in August. That is the lowest it has been since August 1978. The number of Americans who are eligible to work but not working is 90,000,000. This is why our economy cannot gain momentum.
But under the philosophy of Marx and Obama, head of the regime and the Marxist/Progressives, they are accomplishing their goals; spread the proceeds of labor to all people fairly whether working or not. When this is done it will always produce the results we are seeing.
