Jack Welch on Jobs numbers

Jack Welch’s Tweet on Jobs Numbers

Donna Garners says…..

I find it very suspicious that just when Obama needs the unemployment rate to go down right before the upcoming elections and after his miserable performance against Romney in the 10.3.12 debate, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced today that the unemployment rate has gone down to 7.8%.  However, hidden in that number is the fact that 10,000 new government employees have been added in July, August, and September.  I think this may be the reason why Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric, tweeted today after hearing the just-released unemployment rate, “Unbelievable jobs numbers…these Chicago guys will do anything…can’t debate so change numbe

 12.1 Million Americans are still out of work

Please read Terence P. Jeffrey’s article Unemployment Rate Plummets to 4.3%–For Government Workers as he explains that it is also very suspicious that the number of government employees has risen while at the same time the U. S. Post Office is laying off thousands of workers.  –

(CNSNews.com) –  The best news anywhere in the U.S. economy over the past three months has been in the government sector, where unemployment has dropped dramatically from 5.7 percent in July to 5.1 percent in August to 4.3 percent in September, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Both the federal and state governments increased their employees in July, August and September.

The Obama administration has added 10,000 civilian workers to the federal government’s payroll since July, according to BLS. In that month, the federal government employed 2,804,000 civilian workers. In August, that increased to 2,810,000. And, in September, the number of civilian federal employees increased again to 2,814,000.

The BLS’s count of civilian federal employees does not include members of the military or individuals who work for certain intelligence gathering agencies, including the Central Intelligence Agency and the NSA.

The Obama administration has been able to accomplish a net increase in federal employees over the past three months even while the U.S. Postal Service–whose employees are considered part of the federal workforce–eliminated jobs and decreased its payroll. In July, according to BLS, the Postal Service employed 610,000 people. In August, that declined to 609,900, and in September that declined to 606,900.

State governments have added a net of 17,000 new workers to their taxpayer-funded payrolls over the past three months. In July, state government around the nation employed 5,052,000 people. In August, that climbed to 5,056,000, and in September it climbed again to 5,069,000.
