Great news! Unemployment rate is ‘only’ 8.254% in July according to Alan Krueger – Obama econ advisor
Whew, I just wiped the sweat off my brow. Today’s dismal jobs report that the pink slime media is trying to spin is really good news after all! You see, according to Obama economics adviser Alan Krueger, the unemployment rate in July ‘only’ went up to 8.254%. That up from June’s 8.217%. So Krueger calls this “essentially unchanged.” Yes, this is who is in charge of this country folks! Tell that to the 23 million Americans who are still underemployed or unemployed. Also, tell this to that 195,000 that left the workforce in July, because they were so fed up they couldn’t find a job.
WH econ adviser Alan Krueger points out that unemployment uptick is only from 8.217% in June to 8.254% in July” – “essentially unchanged.
