Ok, conservatards, tell us how this is actually a bad thing, or "not good enough" as John Boner did. Go! :lol:

http://www.zerohedge...e-economy-redux
While not shocking to most, the jump in temporary workers that we cited earlier is perhaps the biggest indicator of job 'quality' gains. As we discussed here last month, the US market economy remains mired in a low quality (“first-fired, first-hired categories rather than the type of core hiring that would build a stronger foundation for income growth,” as FTN's Jim Vogel describes it) recovery. About 160k of private jobs added in Feb are 'low-paying work' which left average hourly earnings up only 0.1% (notes David Ader at CRT) - hardly the recipe for a sustainable recovery and perhaps the slow leak in stocks post the number is the rude awakening to that reality.

Finally, and most, importantly, we hope that this analysis has proven that while the BLS may play around with various numerators, denominators, seasonal adjustments, and other irrelevant gimmicks which are only fit for popular consumption particularly by those who have never used excel in their lives, a deeper analysis confirms our concerns, that not only is America slipping ever further into a state of permanent "temp job" status, but that a "quality analysis" of the jobs created shows that the US job formation machinery is badly hurt, and just like the marginal utility of debt now hitting a critical inflection point, so the "marginal utility" of incremental jobs is now negative, which means that Obama, or whichever administration, can easily represent to be growing jobs, and declining the unemployment rate by whatever gimmick necessary. Yet these very jobs are now generating far less in so very critical tax revenue for the US treasury, and continue to declining steadily in quality.

Finally, two more charts, the first showing the NSA number of Part-Time jobs from the Household Survey. At 28,096,000 this number is just shy of the all time high of 28,106,000, and represents 19.4% of total employment. Second, as JT Smith reminds us, the number of people holding Multiple Jobs rose by 286K in February, more than the entire employed increase announced in the Establishment survey, and at 7,116,000 is now back to the highest since May 2010.

NSA Part Time:





Not a bad thing. But not a good thing either. More people having to hold multiple jobs is good for this economy?

All my flavors are guranteed to satisfy.

Most of these jobs are service jobs. The type of job that is created is important. That is why there is spin on both sides. The reality is that 8.3% unemployment at the cost of borrowing $5+ trillion is an epic fail.

Things will get much worse after the election no matter who is elected; all we are voting for is the degree of pain we will suffer.

I sure wish Obama's promise to have the unemployment rate below 6% by this date if we just gave him his "Porkulus" money had worked out.

Just think how well the economy would be humming along if that hadn't been a massive lie. :thumbsdown:

Obama really inherited a mess for his second term.

I would be making money hand over fist if mfg was at the point our unemployment rate was under 6%.

I simply pointed out the fact Obama wasted a trillion dollars to give us a higher unemployment rate than he said we would get if we did nothing. And if we gave him the money unemployment would be below 6% right now.

Those are facts. His administration made those claims. No matter how much you try to divert the issue to some lame ass "RP wants Obama impaled" BS, it won't change the facts.

That's a far cry from me not wanting Obama's policies to succeed. It's a shame he wasted a trillion dollars of our kid's money and got worse results than he said we would face if we did nothing. Like I said, if he wasn't a lying sack, and him spending a trillion dollars of our kids money resulted in the <6% unemployment we would all be making more money.

Sadly, he is just an incompetent lying sack. Even sadder, people like you continue to buy into it. :shocking:

New poll that came out today has Obama's approval rating at 41% despite the good job numbers. And this is just a month after he hit 50%.

I don't think the employment situation has ever been worse in my lifetime. At last tally, there were maybe three people on my block that still had jobs, including me. The stunning thing is the amount of union people who have been laid off in the past few months. One of my neighbors got turned down for a job selling knives door to door. Too many applicants. Convenience stores won't even take your applications anymore. Anyone that is telling you the economy and/or employment is improving doesn't know d!ck.
