Greatest Job Growth Since 1999 in spite of Right-wing Obstruction!!!
The tragic killings of black men understandably overshadowed one more great achievement by the Obama administration. While the news of the killings is very important, our news media does seem to have the professional desire to give balance, preferring to repeat the same thing over and over 24-7. But here it is – not only did job growth hit 321,000 jobs in Nov but it is the 56th – yes 56th consecutive month of job growth since Obama inherited the messed up economy handed to him by the Republicans. According to MSNBC, “ November was the 50th consecutive month of positive job growth – the best stretch since 1939 – and the 56th consecutive month in which we’ve seen private-sector job growth – the longest on record.” The jobless rate is now under 6% to 5.9%. This is the lowest since the beginning of the Bush, Right-wing destruction of our economy!! In President Obama’s words, “So far this year, over the first 11 months of 2014, our economy has created 2.65 million jobs. That’s more than in any entire year since the 1990s. Our businesses have now created 10.9 million jobs over the past 57 months in a row.”
The Right wing clowns will off course dismiss it with talk of “they’re just temp jobs and no wage growth. The problem of no real wage growth can be attributed to greedy corporate business owners. Take Walmart for example. Earning billions it will not raise wages preferring to let you – yes, you the taxpayer pay for the thousands of Walmart employees use of food stamps – the food stamps you want to take away from “lazy poor folks” eh!!! This scenario is repeated in many other companies with business owners playing every loophole they can to get away with paying less in salaries.
