    True that. I was planning on retiring at the beginning of this year, but got a raise to stay on one more year. And yes, I am part of the baby boom generation, and will be retired at the end of this year. It is OUR generation that accounts for the drop in participation in the work force.

    Breaking even is good news vs. the bad news of losing that many jobs, however the goal isn't to just break even.

    I suspect that we will see a huge increase, making up for the Q1 decline.

    Wishful thinking ?

    depending on the state of economy, you need "x" amount of jobs just to keep up with population increasing

    that number varies by month, and by year

    this article is a couple of years old, but is informative on how it is calculated

    How Many Jobs Are Needed to Keep Up with Population Growth? | The Economic Populist

    but the bottom line is, approximately 100k jobs a month is necessary to keep up

    so if 400k jobs were created in first 4 months, we are about breaking even

    now that is much better than going backwards....but not really helping out with the gdp growth

    we need 250k full time, good paying jobs monthly to really hit the gas pedal

    believe it or not, the ACA is contributing to the number of part time jobs going up, and full time jobs going down

    Let's face it, you and all the other liberals have such low standards and ignore the details behind the numbers. What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty and such low economic standards.

    June Full-Time Jobs Plunge By Over Half A Million, Part-Time Jobs Surge By 800K, Most Since 1993 | Zero Hedge

    What wonderful results, a surge of 800,000 part time jobs and a plunge in the number of full time jobs.

    Suggest you people pay closer attention to the results and stop reading the headlines. Here is what you are ignoring


    The Obama Presidency Unravels « Commentary Magazine

    Conservatives tried to tell you in 2008 you were electing an incompetent, made the same claims in 2012 where 4 million more got the message and yet there are still people here who continue to buy the Obama rhetoric. Wonder why his JAR is so low now? Hmmmm, what is it going to take to get you Obama supporters to wake up?

    Fox didn't tell me that we have less people working today than we had when the recession began, BLS did. Amazing how these numbers are ignored. Didn't Obama say he had the answers and here we are almost 7 years after the recession began, have a growing population and still fewer people employed than were employed when the recession began. Guess Obama lies so much that supporters still don't pay any attention

    Part time positions are up by all of 10,000 in the past year, while full time positions are up by 2 million. Not exactly apocalyptic in nature.

    when did the ACA go into effect for business?

    ooooh....thats right....it isnt in effect yet

    i am not Kreskin (if you dont get the reference, google it), but i do see a pattern forming

    On Monday, the Obama administration announced that it again will delay aspects of the Affordable Care Act's employer mandate, the New York Times reports.

    The employer mandate requires businesses with more than 50 employees working 30 hours or more per week to provide affordable health insurance coverage to workers or face fines.

    The Department of Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service on Monday released a final rule that outlined the enforcement timeline of the mandate (Treasury release, 2/10). The changes included in the new regulations will affect both mid-sized and large companies.
    Mid-sized businesses that employ 50 to 99 full-time workers will have another year to provide health insurance coverage to employees. These employers will not face fines for failing to provide coverage to workers until 2016, according to the final rule (Norman/Nather, Politico, 2/10).

    Obama Administration Further Delays ACA's Employer Mandate - California Healthline

    now i ask myself.....why would the administration push it back yet again?

    could the mid term elections have anything to do with it?

    i wonder.........

    Where in the hell did you get that number? BLS disagrees with you

    The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred
    to as involuntary part-time workers) increased by 275,000 in June to 7.5 million.
    The number of involuntary part-time workers is down over the year but has shown no
    clear trend in recent months. These individuals were working part time because their
    hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job. (See
    table A-8.)
