    Rates of unemployment for the lowest-income families — those earning less than $20,000 — have topped 21 percent, nearly matching the rate for all workers during the 1930s Great Depression.

    U.S. households with income of more than $150,000 a year have an unemployment rate of 3.2 percent, a level traditionally defined as full employment. At the same time, middle-income workers are increasingly pushed into lower-wage jobs. Many of them in turn are displacing lower-skilled, low-income workers, who become unemployed or are forced to work fewer hours, the analysis shows.

    “This was no ‘equal opportunity’ recession or an ‘equal opportunity’ recovery,” said Andrew Sum, director of the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University. “One part of America is in depression, while another part is in full employment.”

    Access to reasonable healthcare should not be directly tied to employment.

    For the rich and their instruments like Wall ST. are fine, the rest of us are doing poorly.

    Actually, Obamacare is creating jobs; check the statistics. It’s the anti-growth Republican polciies that are holding back the economy. The first time EVER that the government has cut spending during a recession. Check Bernanke’s Tuesday statement for his undisguised revulsion at how the Republicans are actively hurting America’s recovery, based on no economic theory whatsoever, harming all Americans purely out of spite for the president.

    41 votes on Obamney Care, 37 on Abortion, 1 to de-fund Acorn which has not existed for 3 years. Electrical grid about 100 years old, no protection on EMP’s or computer sabotage which could take the whole thing down for months, Interstate Hwy system built to last 50 years, now past 50 years, bridges and roads disintegrating.- GOP HOUSE NO VOTES ON JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!
