    To that...

    Yeah, because they applied for a job and got hired!

    And what do we do about that?

    A part time job...that pays minimum wage. There's something to brag about! More celebration of mediocrity.

    Wow, what a deeply sourced post.

    You just hate good financial news that is good for this nation because Obama is president. Derangement.

    I read not one word of your last post.

    I saw it was long and contained no useful links...so I ignored it.

    When will you learn, I do not even begin to care about your theories on this subject (well, I tried to have an open mind with your chart..but now I realize my faith was misplaced).

    Why would I?

    Some faceless nobody on a chat forum who claims to have worked for that pathetic Bureau of Laboured Statistics.

    Oh yeah...how will I survive without your knowledge of economics.

    :

    All you are good for to me is your extensive knowledge of the BLS website...that is it.

    In other words, you are a good bureaucrat...but you, no offense, clearly do not understand macroeconomics.


    (okay mods...I am done going off topic on this, sorry)


    What are you talking g about?


    I posted the chart. You wanted a link to it. I gave it to you. You wanted the data, I gave it to you. Now you want a link to the chart again. Do you have a learning disability? There are no other links I can give you....I gave you the links at least 3 times. You don't have to hunt any numbers, I gave you the links.


    I give up...over your head (apparently).


    We are done here.


    Good day.
