    You are so right, 7.5 million part time workers for economic reasons is a great performance because the numbers are down vs. last year. That is liberal logic. The 7.5 MILLION aren't just numbers they are people showing that apparently you really don't care about people.

    Vs. your case of low standards and low economic results being trumpeted. Bet you enjoy the 6.8 trillion added to the debt because it is a low percentage increase?

    I wouldn't know what Fox News is telling people, seeing as I don't watch it. Even if June's decline in full-time positions is a fluke and it all balances out rather than being the first leg in a massive decline, 100,000 jobs a month is just barely scraping by and is not growth positive.

    Yet still nearly 4 million short of where it was in 2007.

    Yes, full time positions still lag behind pre-recession levels, despite them having increased by over 11 million since the recession actually ended.

    The poster I was responding to before you decided to go full retard claimed the ACA to be driving down the number of full time employees and driving up the part time. I simply pointed out that the effects thus far, have been nominal at best. That they're optimal or satisfactory levels is a strawman built by you and you alone.

    That is liberal logic. The 7.5 MILLION aren't just numbers they are people showing that apparently you really don't care about people.
    Oh, they're People? Wow, just more top shelf insight there. Teach me how to economy!

    It only took until this seventh post to bad-mouth a report that you would be praising Romney for.

    Just wondering, the U.S. passed an emergency increase in unemployment benefits the end of last year, wonder if the expiration of those benefits had anything to do with a spurt on hiring in June? Hmmmm??

    Full-times jobs have not increased by over 11 million, but more like 8 million. Of course, one has to consider that about 7 million people joined the working-age population in the same time period. When you include part-time jobs the overall increase has been about 11 million, but again, around 7 million people joined the working-age population. Not to mention, people who are retirement age are increasingly continuing in employment due to economic conditions. None of that is growth positive.
