    What are you all whining about? The so called job creators are busy creating plenty of jobs to go around. Anyone who really wanted one could easily move to Asia to get one of them.

    Fact: there exist today 9 million FEWER jobs than existed Jan.2009. (Bur.Labor workforce employment numbers)

    -
    O’s bragging about “adding jobs” and omitting the Fact that in 2013 todate 77% were part-time jobs and one parent would need multiple part-time jobs to earn a livable income!
    What a Proud Record for this president….not.

    .
    Don’t forget the added burden on the public assistance rolls. Votes for democrats bought and paid for by every taxpayer.

    Do you have a link for that or is that straight from your vivid dreams?

    Try the Obama’s Labor Dept. run by Obama political appointee,Secretary Thomas Perez.Do your own research on the democrat run government websites. They count on folks like you never looking up the stuff they put there.

    I will mention that part time jobs aren’t innately a bad thing, So long as wages are kept the same.

    This may be done by some companies when they have more supply than demand due to efficiency. The employer not wanting to punish employees but at the same time not wanting to increase costs of operations by raising wage may opt to do this.

    As a simple example imagine you are working 40 hours / week at 20$ / Hour, your employer reduces you to 32 H/ Week at 25$ an hour.

    The fewer hours also may be opted for as people age (I’ve had family that has done it) or can also be the result of moving towards contracted work (one of the largest growing groups of employment)

    Time to break out the tin hats, does this mean that all republican presidents also edit the data, or should an election be held separately for secretary ?

    Gee where did all the jobs go? Why dont you go back and look at when the jobs started disappearing and who was Pres at the time. Wow are you that stupid or do you just get all your “facts” from FoxNews?

    @echoraven

    And the guy before him was just great wasn’t he? An illegal war and an economic meltdown. Go look up the word hypocrisy before you make any more comments…

    “Part-time work has made up 77 percent of the job growth so far this year. The government defines part-time work as being less than 35 hours a week.”

    http://www.bostonglobe.com/business/2013/08/04/new-jobs-disproportionately-low-paying-part-time/PJLqZiPvKgc91rfA9XkGgP/story.html

    Other sources do not have percentages that high, but they didn’t specify what was classed as part time. In quick scan of multiple sites the lowest I found was 60%

    www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-08-02…
    Zerohedge points out that of the 953,000 jobs created thus far in 2013, 77% are part-time.
    All 2013 to August, Obama’s “recovery” has only created 222,000 full time jobs.
    July 2013 “dropout” job seekers numbered 37,000, lowering the Labor Force Participation workers total.
    If the LFP was equal to 2009 when Obama took office,
    the unemployment rate today would be 10.7%….from an article 8/3/13 by John Nolte at www.breitbart.com, in Big Journalism on the website….“5 things Media aren’t telling you about jobs numbers”….

    This cartoon has it all wrong. There are no real job seekers, right? The Job Creators have created so many jobs that there are tons of openings that no one wants to fill. I mean, everyone who really wants a job just has to apply themselves and one will appear. Right?
    -
    Everyone who is unemployed for more than the time it takes to get on unemployment and food stamps is part of the 47% and wants no part of ever being employed again.
