Unemployment rate falls to 4.6%, 176,000 jobs added

Posted by | December 2, 2016 08:53 | Filed under: Economy Good News Politics

The unemployment rate is the lowest since August 2007.

Unemployment has been at or below 5% for nearly a year as more people have returned to the job market and hiring has maintained momentum.

November was the 74th consecutive month America added jobs. The economy is near “full employment.”

Wages rose 2.5% in November from a year ago, though that marked a slight slowdown from October.

    four years from now we will be bleeding 800,000/month.

    Gas will be at $5.00 a gallon.

    Unemployment will be at 8%

    Record numbers of Americans without health care insurance.

    Workers will have lost their 401K’s

    Another bank bail out but this time it will be a bank bail in.

    Record homelessness.

    Record homes being repossess

    Probably two more wars.

    And the billionaires will be a lot richer.

    Just like the last time the repubs where in charge.

    Imagine that, and all without bribing a company seven million dollars with taxpayer funds.

    But somehow, Obama’s eight years were a disaster. Imagine that.

      Call me a commie pinko, but I wouldn’t mind having the Kenyan-born, commie, socialist, member of the Muslim Brotherhood, run the country for another 4 years.

    4.6% is considered by many to be “full employment”…
    Of course Trump will poo-poo it as a lie..
    Or claim he would do even better..

      But jobs will only cost $7,000,000 per thousand under T.Rump.

    Let’s compare shall we! Pres Elect, Graber Of Pussy (GOP) Donald (Conman) Trump (R) takes a victory lap for Carrier saving 800 jobs. while also Losing (same company) over 1000 American Jobs to Mexico. President Obama (D) 74 consecutive months of JOB GAIN including the latest 176,000 and 4.6% Unemployment rate (lowest in almost 9 years). Also President Obama (D) on Jan 20, 2009 inherited from the republican administration a LOSS of -8.7 MILLION AMERICAN JOBS from the then republican Secretary of Labour (2000-2008) Elaine Chao (R) aka Mrs Sen Mitch McConnell (R), who has just been recently regurgitated back into the Pres Elect Graber Of Pussy (GOP) Donald (Conman) Trump (R) new Cabinet. selection. Now ask yourself, who in anyone’s right mind would appoint someone who served previously as Sec of Labour with a minus -8.7 Million Lost Jobs record ? BTW, Pres Obama (D) took office on Jan 20,1009 the Stock Market Dow was Down 7,949 Pts, today the Stock Market Dow is UP to 19,170 Pts, thereby saving ALL Americans 401 (k’s) and other Retirement Plans for ALL American’s and not just the 1%! Thank you President Obama (D).

    Let’s see, that’s a hundred and seventy-six times more jobs that T. Rump got by giving Carrier SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS and Still losing 1300 jobs. Pres. Obama , WE are going to miss you.
