    What you Obama apologists want to ignore is the reality. Here is the employment numbers and you will see that we haven't recovered yet 5 years after the end of the recession as we have fewer people working today than when the recession began. Before you point to the private sector vs the public sector you need to focus on state govt. versus Federal Govt. employees. States cannot print money and it is the states that lay off govt. employees, not the Federal Govt. Obama has had absolutely nothing to do with any job growth in the private sector nor the layoffs at the state and local govt. levels. Spin that liberal bs some place else.

    37.2%: Percentage Not in Labor Force Remains at 36-Year High | CNS News

    (CNSNews.com) - The percentage of American civilians 16 or older who do not have a job and are not actively seeking one remained at a 36-year high in May, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    In December, April, and now May, the labor force participation rate has been 62.8 percent. That means that 37.2 percent were not participating in the labor force during those months.

    Before December, the last time the labor force participation rate sunk as low as 62.8 percent was February 1978, when it was also 62.8 percent. At that time, Jimmy Carter was president.

    In April, the number of those not in the labor force hit a record high of 92,018,000. In May, that number declined by 9,000 to 92,009,000. Yet, the participation rate remained the same from April to May at 62.8 percent.

    The labor force, according to BLS, is that part of the civilian noninstitutional population that either has a job or has actively sought one in the last four weeks. The civilian noninstitutional population consists of people 16 or older, who are not on active duty in the military or in an institution such as a prison, nursing home, or mental hospital.




    All of this according to the BLS, hey its your .

    Please learn the difference between a total number and a percentage. There's a very large difference and you don't seem to understand it. It's really simple. There are more people in the workforce now than in December 2007. This is indisputable. There is also a lower percentage of capable Americans working than in December 2007. This is indisputable as well.

    However, what people were saying in this thread was that fewer people in the workforce. That was 100% false, as I proved. Please pay attention to important details if you're going to respond to me.

    You shouldn't bother people with things like facts. It's so much easier for them to make up **** and pretend it's true.
    As I've already shown in this thread, you are wrong.

    Bureau of Labor Statistics Data

    There are more people working now than when the recession started. It's just a fact.
    No, that isn't a fact, that is a lie and I just posted the BLS chart to show it. I also explained the govt. jobs as well but as a good little soldier for the liberal ideology you will ignore it

    We were talking about the number of people in the workforce. There are more people in the workforce now than in December 2007. As my link shows.

    The labor force, according to BLS, is that part of the civilian noninstitutional population that either has a job or has actively sought one in the last four weeks. The civilian noninstitutional population consists of people 16 or older, who are not on active duty in the military or in an institution such as a prison, nursing home, or mental hospital.

    In May, according to BLS, the nation’s civilian noninstitutional population, consisting of all people 16 or older who were not in the military or an institution, hit 247,622,000. Of those, 155,613,000 participated in the labor force by either holding a job or actively seeking one.

    The 155,613,000 who participated in the labor force equaled only 62.8 percent of the 247,622,000 civilian noninstitutional population, matching (along with the 62.8 percent rate in May) the lowest labor force participation rate in 36 years.

    At no time during the presidencies of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton or George W. Bush, did such a small percentage of the civilian non-institutional population either hold a job or at least actively seek one.

    When President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the labor force participation rate was 65.7 percent. By the beginning of 2013, the start of Obama’s second term, it had dropped to 63.6 percent. Since January 2014, when the participation rate was 63.0,it has continued to decline, hitting a 36-year low of 62.8 percent in May.

    People in the civilian noninstitutional population who did not have a job and did not actively seek one in the last four weeks are considered “not in the labor force.” The number of Americans not in the labor force has climbed by 11,480,000 since Obama took office, rising from 80,529,000 in January 2009 to 92,009,000 in May 2014.
