    I'd ask for some supporting data for that 9.5 million job claim but I know better
    9.5 million Americans have left the workforce during the presidency of Barack Obama, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    In April, the total number of Americans counted as "not in the labor force" declined for the first time since December, but that number was still near a record high at 89,936,000.

    Those not in the labor force declined by 31,000, from a record high of 89,967,000 in March. That broke the recent record of 89,304,000 not in the labor force in February of this year.

    Since February 2009, the first full month of Obama’s presidency, 9,549,000 people have left the labor force. There were 80,387,000 Americans not working that month, compared with 89,936,000 not working or looking today, according to the latest economic release from BLS.

    Yes, and curiously enough it said nothing of previously including discouraged and the underemployed in the official figures or altering said practice from '94 onward.

    as of september last year, 58% of the pathetically few jobs (not even enough to keep up with population) generated by the "obama recovery" earn between 8 and 12 dollars per hour

    Majority of new jobs in recovery are low-paying - Los Angeles Times

    net income is down $3500 AFTER the recession ended

    Household income fell 4.8% during economic recovery - Los Angeles Times

    food stamps and disability are at astronomical, unsustainable highs

    So much for Obama taking care of the middle class, in fact under Obama the middle class has moved further down making the middle class gap wider. Obama for real prosperity for the middle class, yeah right, when will they wake up?

    Great for the rich, bad for the middle class, the gap between the middle class and the rich has widened under Obama
    It's time for the Tea Party Occupied House to claim the nation is on the brink of disaster and hold another vote to repeal Obamacare.
    Obamacare is self destructing have you not heard.

    And conservatives wonder why they are going extinct.

    No answer will be forthcoming from a liberal. But from a conservative, it got us nowhere except more debt. And by Obama raising the national debt by over 6 trillion so far they are proud of that fact.

    bloomberg---dominos pizza is hiring big time

    Payrolls in U.S. Rise 165,000 as Unemployment Rate Drops - Bloomberg

    Companies like Domino's Pizza have indicated they still see strong enough demand to justify increasing their headcounts. The Ann Arbor, Michigan-based pizza chain reported sales at stores open at least 12 months increased in the first quarter by more than 6 percent from a year earlier.

    “We’re absolutely hiring right now,” Chief Executive Officer Patrick Doyle said during a May 1 interview on Bloomberg Television. He said “a more comfortable consumer” is driving demand and allowing his business to expand. “Just in the U.S., with 5,000 stores, we could easily hire 10,000 people today.”

    Industries adding jobs included leisure and hospitality, including a 38,000 jump at restaurants and bars, today’s report showed. Retail trade and education and health services also increased headcounts.
    too much part time, too many temps

    The pullback in the workweek may also be reflected in an increase in part-time employment. The number of employees not toiling a full week rose to 27.5 million from 27.4 million. Some 223,000 more people said they were working part-time because of economic slack last month.

    Temporary-help services added 30,800 workers to payrolls in April, the most since February 2012.
