Stat of the Day – Doing Fine Edition
Private-sector jobs are still down by 4.6 million, or 4%, from January 2008, when overall employment peaked. Meanwhile government jobs are down just 407,000, or 1.8%. Federal employment actually is 225,000 jobsabove its January 2008 level, an 11.4% increase. That’s right, up 11.4%.
I suppose when you are President Obama and you believe that the government is the provider for all things, the private sector is “doing fine”.
You see the state governments are not cooperating and hiring more. Bad Governor’s, bad. That is the problem.
