With 200,000 new jobs, jobless rate falls to 7.8%

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent in September after a gain of 114,000 jobs. That’s the lowest jobless rate in 44 months.

The fall in the jobless rate was accelerated by the discovery of 86,000 new jobs that had gone uncounted in July and August, for a total of 200,000 previously uncounted jobs.

That pattern suggests that September’s numbers may be revised upward as well. In an improving economy, as this one seems to be, monthly BLS stats typically undercount job creation because jobs appear in places they weren’t necessarily looking.

Moreover, the sharp decline in the unemployment rate is NOT due to a decline in those in the workforce. To the contrary, the BLS reports, “The civilian labor force rose by 418,000 to 155.1 million in September.”

In other words, a better economy is drawing people back into the job market to look for work. The average wage rose as well.

Well this bears adding to the discussion.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-04/unemployment-drop-masks-labor-malaise-chart-of-the-day.html

“While unemployment has fallen to 8.1 percent from 10 percent in 2009, the CHART OF THE DAY shows the percentage of people working, known as the employment-population ratio, has remained near its lows of the recession, suggesting limited progress toward a recovery in jobs.

“In a better economy we would see an improvement in this data,” said Adolfo Laurenti, deputy chief economist at Mesirow Financial Inc. in Chicago. While the ratio has fallen as the baby boomer generation retires and because more students are returning to school “the tougher nut to crack is those people who are truly discouraged workers, who could be in the job market but are leaving.”

The employment-population ratio climbed to a record high 64.7 percent in April of 2000 before falling as low as 58.2 percent in December 2009, the lowest level since 1983. A lack of labor-market improvement, even with the drop in the unemployment rate, prompted the Fed to begin a third round of asset purchases, or QE3, in which it’s buying $40 billion a month of mortgage-backed securities.”

I’m glad of these numbers and they are, indeed, an improvement, but…Down Bells Ferry a ways there’s a strip mall that was built around three years ago for Food Lion. There were also six out parcels for other businesses. They were never occupied. Today people use the parking lots to teach their kids to ride bikes or drive cars. That place has become my bellwether for the economy. The day even one business moves in, is the day I will say our economy is good again.

Peadawg, they differentiate between those working parttime because they WANT to work parttime and those who work parttime because they can’t find fulltime work. In this case, a lot of those 400,000-plus re-entrants into the workforce did find part-time work at least, which also suggests things could be breaking.

The Obama campaign has become completely unraveled. Obama’s Labor Department is now making up employment numbers and had to do it so quickly the numbers make no sense. The Chicago thugs continue to lie, cheat and perpetuate fraud on us using our tax dollars to commit these crimes. The Labor Department numbeds are proof of panic in the Obama ranks. Their golden goose is laying its last eggs and they know it. Obama couldn’t use his prepared lies and bumper sticker slogans during the debate because he knows how foolish he would look when so many would be easily pointed out for what they were so he has resorted to usng our government agencies to lie on his behalf. Libya, lies. Unemployment numbers, lies. The lying continues and increases as the desperation mounts.

Any improvement is welcome, but this is too little, too late.

A few points to consider before taking the second victory lap:

1. As of late it is hard to accept any report from this administratIon as 100% credible.

2. Recent history tells us that the numbers will indeed be revised, but it will be upward.

3. Many, if not most, of the new jobs were classified as part-time.

4. The administration can report whatever it wants, but the people are still suffering.

5. The total number of workers that have dropped out of the labor pool is still staggering.

6. The true unemployment number is much higher.

Now, enjoy your day whooping it up and declaring that the economy is all fixed up and peachy.

Unfortuntately this isn’t a trend. It is probably just statistical noise. Show a trend of job growth in well paid jobs over a period of several months and it is meaningful. This might make a talking point for Obama, but sadly it doesn’t tell us much about the overall health of the economy.

With over three consecutive years of unemployment above 8 percent, September’s still disappointing jobs report shows an addition of a meager 114,000 jobs. That’s enough to make unemployment drop to 7.8 percent from the 8.1 percent after August.

The number of unemployed persons (12.1 million) dropped by 456,000.

The number of persons unemployed (2.5 million) for less than 5 weeks declined by 302,000.

The number of long-term unemployed persons (jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 4.8 million.

The number of long-term unemployed persons accounted for 40.1 percent of the unemployed.

Total employment rose by 873,000 in September.

The Labor Force Participation rate was little changed at 63.6 percent.

The number of persons employed part-time for economic reasons rose from 8.0 million in August to 8.6 million in September.

If the number of unemployed dropped by 456,000, but only 114,000 jobs were added, that means that 342,000 people left the workforce in some fashion. Couple that with the fact that the number of part-time workers saw an increase of 582,000 while manufacturing unemployment saw a decrease of 16,000 jobs and this drop in unemployment rate begins to looks less and less optimistic, and more like a misleading mathematical equation.

In other words, another mathematical deception by Obama’s Labor Department.

Manipulating math allows the garden variety liberal to sway the weak minded stooges and populace that has ‘graduated’ from our public school system.

Trying to discuss facts with liberals and their stooges is like putting a blindfold on Stevie Wonder and asking him to read an eye chart at fifty paces.

In general, the revisions tend to stay in one direction for a while until the birth/death model catches up and then eventually they reverse direction when the economy changes.

Hmmm…let’s see. November 6 is drawing closer and closer. Obama got his lunch taken from him Wednesday night and eaten. Romney enlightened an undecided electorate. Obama’s goose-steppers denied his trouncing with ludicrous explanations. And all of a sudden, we see the Obama Labor Department finding all kinds of new jobs to bring down the unemployment figures just before the election. We’re not stupid. Only elitists think that way.

Let’s just see how the news media handles this recently found nugget of information. Let’s just see how the news bias wets its pants over this “recently discovered” forgotten job count. What the Democrat Party does to stay in power is morally corrupt and reprehensible. Worse off, you liberals know it and you don’t care. But, enough of the obvious.

Part time jobs, seasonal jobs, or whatever fleeting job does not make a sound foundation for growth. You reprobates are grasping at straws. Temporary jobs = uncertainty of the future. Uncertainty of the future goes away when Obama goes away.

This country needs a businessman NOW. For God’s sake and the sake of this country…get out of the way and let Romney fix what’s broken. We certainly do not need anymore of this left wing thinking that you all have brought to the table since 2006.

Doggone – as you didn’t include an “oh, FFS”, I’ll let you off the hook :-)

They Both suck-

You are 100% correct. I was just entertaining myself by being a little snarky. ;)

I really wish the unemployment numbers would improve faster. I have to many friends who are hurting, it kind of painful to see the sadness in their eyes. The collateral damage of divorces, foreclosures, etc. is tough to listen to.

In my head I know coming back from this hole will take a long time but in my heart I am impatient and want it to come faster.
