The Big Takeaway From the September Jobs Report: The Economy Is Stalling

As if people didn’t already know … You been to a store lately?

The U.S. economy added 148,000 jobs and unemployment fell to 7.2 percent in September. That’s not good news.

Elaborate Public Benefits, For Public Workforce?

September 14, 2013

Is now a drag on our country. See how well it’s worked out in bankupt cities areound the country …::: SCOTT SHACKFORD: Even Public Workers Know Ailing Cities Need to Change Their Benefits Systems.

It just simply is not susainable, and has to be reformed.


Hopey-Changey UPDATE

It’s bad and steadily getting worse…::: Millennials Have Nothing To Celebrate When It Comes To Employment:

“Millennials’ future is summed up by joblessness, part-time work, and a cozy futon in mom and dad’s basement. But it didn’t have to be this way. Our economic struggles are a direct result of years of an ever-growing regulatory regime, in which reams of red tape are making steady, full-time employment for young people harder to find and more difficult to keep.”

Our crisis is unmistakable. Over the past four months, the unemployment rate for 18-29 year-olds has averaged nearly 12 percent. When you factor in those who have just given up and stopped looking for jobs altogether, our unemployment rate rises to over 16 percent—or more than twice the national unemployment rate.

It gets worse. Behind those numbers, there’s an even larger shadow looming over Millennials’ economic outlook.

Only 43.6 percent of young adults held a full-time job in June, a nearly four-percent decline from the same time last year. College-educated Millennials have also felt the squeeze: Fewer of them are holding full-time jobs this year, too. An additional 53 percent are either jobless or underemployed relative to their education—and only 30 percent of Millennials actually feel that their job is part of their long-term career plan.

I celebrate that you thought you were trying to fix something made really bad with Bush, and made much worse with Obama and his FDR like policies. FDR took a down turn and turned it into the Great Depression. The world did not participate in our Great Depression. Did you ever wonder why that was?

Do you know what a siren song is? Yes you fell for Obama’s siren song …


Part Time NATION

September 8, 2013

PART-TIME NATION: “An incredible 96% of the jobs added this year were part-time jobs.”

Listen up kiddies instead of a career and a lifestyle, Obama is creating a part-time nation of hamburger flippers. Can you afford your cell phone bill on that? Or do you retire to your 8×10 hut like Obama’s brother in Kenya does.

Because this is what you are being reduced to.


Yes We Know

So why did you fly cover for letting this happen on your watch…::: UNION BOSS: Employers Cut Workers to 29 1/2 Hours to Avoid ObamaCare…

Listen up little kiddies you have been lied to, just like what they are now doing with Syria. This so-called free insurance is going to cost you more than you will ever be able to pay for.

 


Tell Me Why

Does Obama hate the elderly, the disabled???

KRISTV reports:

A budget crunch in Bee County has a community program that helps the disabled and the elderly scrambling to keep their part-time employees.

When the Affordable Care Act takes effect next year, all part-time employees who work over 30 hours a week would have to get health insurance benefits, and that’s something Bee County can not afford.

So, with their fiscal year starting October, they’re capping the number of hours a part-time worker can work to 24 per week.

And that is causing issues for the Bee Community Action Agency.

For you kiddies who are too young to know … We can always do like they did in the old Communist Soviet Union, go off the books, just pay in cash. Why just yesterday I was at Walmart and instead of a credit card took out the case, the startled look on the cashiers face was priceless. I was paying for something that cost over a $100.

So the black market off the record economy begins. Try it the next time you are in a small shop … Ask if their is a discount for cash.

As The Roof Decends, You Cannot Keep Your Policy, Like It Or Not

WALTER RUSSELL MEAD blog ::  Obamacare’s Unintended Effects: Spouses and Children Edition.

Even a well-designed law can have unintended effects that worsen the problems it was meant to solve—and a slipshod law like Obamacare threatens to cause serious damage. UPS, for instance, has decided to stop offering insurance to employee spouses who can get insurance from their own employer.

Stupid, unfeeling for-profit corporations! Oh, wait— A State University is doing the same things …

Call off the leftist marchers and O picket show:

UVA (University of Virginia) officials announced a similar policy yesterday, also referencing the costs Obamacare will add to the university’s health care budget.

This may not seem like a big deal—either way, the spouses will be insured—but it points to some potential problems. For now, UPS and other companies are continuing to cover unemployed spouses, but given their anxiety about steep costs in the era of Obamacare, they could concievably soon decide to exclude them.

This could put more pressure on the exchanges, ramping up the number of older people receiving subsidized plans in the individual market. But what the exchanges need to work is more “young invincibles”, not more middle-aged spouses kicked off employee plans. And here the incentives seem to be working the opposite way.

Was whole thing were designed to fail. From the start? Move on nothing to see here.

Have you seen my new puppy?
