Thanks Obama! Americans’ assessments of the job market is at it’s worst in a decade
Once again you can thank Obama, and the Nancy Pelosi controlled Congress from 2007-2011 for the lousy job market. According to Gallup, Americans’ assessments of the job market has worsened and is now at the most pessimistic they have been in the past decade. 90% of Americans say it’s a “bad time” to find a good, quality job. 8% for some odd reason think it’s a good time. The poll is amazing because the results of the Republicans, Democrats, and Independents polled are nearly identical across the board.
But underemployed and unemployed statistics may not be telling the whole story, if millions of additional Americans can’t find quality jobs. A lack of quality jobs reduces not only Americans’ current earnings but also their future earnings because they are failing to gain experience in good jobs.
