    Enough factors were listed to explain the numbers.
    Let's hope and pray for a change in the way the two ruling parties work together, the real impediment to further growth IMHO .

    Well, actually there are reasons they cannot move. If they are upside down on their home mortgage, they can't move. Just one example.
    Not all company's are willing to retrain - especially for skilled workers. Construction is skilled labor - you can't just hire someone who's been doing an office job for 5 years and make them into a welder or set I beams in concrete.

    If they're upside down on their mortgage, it's no excuse it's a reality. They sell their home owing thousands or tens of thousands. How many people do you know who have 10 or 15 grand liquid cash they can throw at something without blinking? Certainly no one who's looking for a construction job unless they hit the lottery or had a rich dead uncle leave them money.

    Another reality is, company's who have the job openings are not going to hand hold office workers for the next 9 months while they learn their job.

    Well earlier today.....they were talking about how a lot of those jobs are part time. Seasonal and Low wage earning type jobs.

    Yet for some reason the Lib Economists are now saying for their opposites, that their pessimism isn't showing the whole story.....that issue on how the left likes to use those numbers based off of what employers said they would be hiring for the beginning of 2014. Shows them for how wrong they are. Many companies are saying they wont be hiring what they stated and as a matter of fact, for some. They will be laying off people or and closing business.

    Huh, pretty different from the "expected' job numbers.

    I wonder who obama is going to blame on this one?

    i mean if you look the over all down trend in the unemployment rate is directly due to people not looking for work. it has nothing at all do to with them being hired.
    the employor mandate kicks in this year as well so any highering that would be done is getting put off.

    heck my company is cutting back this year in an attemp not to fire or lay people off. the reason being some economy other to do with existing contracts.
    other parts is money they have had to pay out for regulations and such.

    obama has no one to blame but himself. this is what happens when you wage a war on prosperity.

    That'd be the 'Hope and Change' express, right there.
