TOPIC: Unemployment_numbers_are_dropping
Created by: Seduction4Two
Original Starting post for this thread:
Unemployment rate is at its lowest level in more than four years. U.S. employers added 236,000 jobs to non-farm payrolls in February. The unemployment rate dropped to 7.7 percent from 7.9 percent in January, with 12 million people looking for work. That is the lowest unemployment rate since December 2008, when the rate was 7.3 percent. Average hourly earnings for workers, rose 0.2 percent to $23.82 from $23.78 in January. They are up just 2.1 percent in the past year.

So, if we have all these new jobs, why is there no decline in spending for welfare and food stamps? In what way do the unemployment numbers make sense if there is no decline in welfare and food stamp spending? If one is to think logically, doesn't it make sense that we'd spend less on welfare, food stamps, unemployment. 7.7% after $10 trillion in new debt is not really a good thing.

Yes, they do. They are included in the "Not in labor force" numbers.

I don't think these numbers include all those people who already have used up all their unemployment bennefits and are no longer collecting!!!!

"So employment has grown at the rate of the population, over the last 12 months?"

Roughly, yes. The situation is more or less static.

Nothing, not on my iPhone not on the laptop, not on the pc. It's alright. We can still discuss it.

Are the numbers coming out jumbled?

If you reduce the zoom on your browser window it might look better.

If you're on an iPhone or something it's probably not going to work.
