Thank you president obama for your leadership.

Lowest since 2009, attributed to more people finding part time work.

Wierd

114k new jobs, but .3 percent drop due to "volitile" home based jobs.

something smells especially since GDP at 1.3%

I guess after election, they can revise downward

Doesn't smell like bullshit. More people giving up and not collecting unemployment can help that number.

740-800k new home jobs? They stress that it is a very volitile number.

What the heck is that?

I just took a look at it... there counting part time jobs.... and there leaving out the people who have quit looking...

Actual unemployment is closer to 11.5%

Even the looney lefties on MSNBC do not understand the math, but are happy that the Repubs can no longer say 44 months above 8% unemployment.

Every economist survey predicted it would go up to 8.2 because of only 114k new jobs. We need over 200k just to stay even.

I am certain it is not political

Unemployment has ALWAYS been calculated like that, not counting those that have stopped looking is not new with this administration.

I thought it was 400,000 to stay even?

Either way, not enough being created, but it is better than losing jobs I suppose.

nor is it a means of accurately painting a truthful picture. it wasn't a point of issue before because the rate of attrition via retirement was supposed to be factored in rather a rate of attrition for simply stopping looking fo work

whether it be more people are working from home or more people are getting part time work, it's better than sitting on their collective asses collecting unemployment.
