Jobs, Jobs, Jobs – US Adds 145,000 More Jobs in December While the Unemployment Rate Stays at Record Low 3.5%

<More Bad News For lefties/proggies/democrats Come November Here>

The Trump economy continues with arguably the best economy in US history. Job numbers released today through the end of December show an increase of another 145,000 jobs! And the unemployment rate remains at historic lows of 3.5%! The White House continues to report that this economy could arguably be the best all time. This is because it is.

According to data released this morning by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, President Trump has added more than 13 million jobs in his first term. The same cannot be said for President Obama as during the same time he increased jobs by only 4 million jobs. Obama was so bad at creating jobs that by the end of his second term he said that jobs were not coming back. This showed in his first two years with millions of lost jobs. Overall President Trump has gained nearly 9 million more jobs than Obama in their respective first two and three quarter years in office!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, under President Trump more Americans are in the work force than ever before. President Trump is working hard to bring good paying jobs back to the US and his efforts are showing historic results. Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the US unemployment rate stands at 3.5%.

I noticed that as well. Oh, well, I remember when the improvements in the economy were "unexpected". The fake news is just too stupid to remember what they've said in the past. I do predict they will continue humiliating themselves until the total breakdown in November!

What’s pathetic is you complaining about factual reporting, while uncritically swallowing propaganda from partisan mills like Gateway Pundit.

It is a FACT that expectations were for 165k jobs and 145k job growth is lower than expected.

145k job growth is also on the soft side compared job growth in the last 8 years. Average monthly job growth has been around 200k over that period. In 2018 it was around 220k.

Throw in the fact that we lost 12,000 manufacturing jobs in December plus underwhelming income growth and it becomes pretty clear that “Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!” this article opens up with is some sort of a bad joke.

Ah, so that’s your line to American voters?

“Hey people, listen up, that Trump over there has given you record low unemployment and wages have started rising too in a promising way and the vast majority of people are better off, but DID YOU KNOW THAT HE FELL SHORT OF HIS TARGETS IN DECEMBER 2019 BY 12%???? I want you to impeach this poor performing scumbag and replace him with a hard core socialist!”

I might say “good luck with that”, but your positions are beyond luck to save them.

You're truly a hopeless, insufferable political hack.

Best economy in our lifetimes, and you quibble over digits?

And what about the previous N months where the job numbers were above expectations? (the famous "unexpected" from our economic elite whose dirty shorts you inhale)

You do realize that you've devolved into full self-parody, right? A downright laughingstock? You're not even trolling at this point, you're the RN court jester. It's almost painful to watch.

focusing on the missing or making targets is hedge fund bull<censored>. And I have little doubt that the Soviet is one of those bottom-dwelling hedge-fund scum suckers

I don't see it that way. Facts are what they are and those "digits" you say I'm quibbling over are called OBJECTIVE MEASURES.

145k jobs with 12,000 manufacturing jobs lost and underwhelming income growth is simply not great economic growth ya'll seem to think it is. It's just not. Sorry, thats just the non-partisan fact here.

I work in the railroad industry. Logistics, supply chains, and seasonal slowdowns (parts for automobile assembly, lumber for housing and construction, shale and sand for concrete). The 12,000 manufacturing jobs "lost" between the weeks leading up to Christmas until the Groundhog Day restart are already factored into the equation.

Typical leftist. You can't comprehend anything longer than a bumper sticker. Here's the story about those 12,000 manufacturing jobs.


Manufacturing jobs are ‘tough to fill’ and stand out as the weak spot in the employment picture

In a year that featured otherwise solid job growth, manufacturing stood out as one sector that lagged behind.

It’s not that the jobs aren’t there: There were still 477,000 open positions as of October, down less than 5% from the year-ago level, according to the Labor Department’s most recent data.

Instead, it’s more a case where the manufacturers themselves are having a harder time filling positions. The hire rate was down more than 18% as the industry struggles with a skills gap and a slowdown amid the pressure of the U.S.-China tariff battle.

“Until we have a better-trained, more-skilled workforce, which is not really out there, you’re going to have a lot of these positions open. It’s a challenge,” said Steve Rosen, CEO of Resilience Capital Partners, an investment firm that owns a diversified portfolio of manufacturers. “There are job openings, and they are very tough to fill.”

I'm in the manufacturing business and I can assure you there's plenty of work. We just can't find anybody with the skills, IQ, or work ethic to do the job. Most of our new hires spend all day playing on their cell phones and a good percentage of them fail the drug test after they crash our expensive CNC machines.

Your just ticked because in eight years your hero hero could not get this nation into a jobs situation where unemployment is at fifty year lows and growth is being affected by the fact that with unemployment so low there are worker shortages in many sectors. In short it's hard to add jobs when there aren't enough workers to be had. Remember when the crashing Labor Force Participation rate and Unemployment rate was due to retirees, and this would continue for the foreseeable future? I sure do. For years you told us this. Now it isn't happening. Your hero's legacy, philosophy and everything else is being ruined so your in not only sheer panic mode but also damage control.

When I think back on my start in the aerospace industry, I can't imagine how any Millennial could have coped with it. High stress, long hours, impossible deadlines you were still expected to meet (you have to be creative to a schedule regardless of if the technology cooperates). Plus the onerous, abusive management philosophy and managers. Meetings were blood sports. These kids would wind up in a fetal position under their desks.

My next to last job we had a 20 something software engineer. Small company. The software lead engineer was, not abusively mind you, critiquing his approach and work, and the guy stands there and starts crying! No <censored>, crying! Everyone in the room just stood there not knowing what to do. Afterwards, the lead kept saying "Crying? There's no crying in software!" parodying the old no crying in baseball meme. The baby engineer didn't last long. And this was one of the best places to work I'd found, small company, enlightened management, flexible work schedules, etc. If he couldn't handle that place he sure as hell would have been raw meat at my first job.

Kids are getting out of high school requiring remedial instruction to do even the dumbed down college courses, and get out of college and employers have to do remedial training as they are still not capable of handling the real world. Good job educators!

On top of that, the democrats want to fill up the country with unskilled migrants. The last thing we need are mobs of people with no job skills. We've got more than enough home-grown burger flippers.

IT's kinda' like saying the Deer population is in serious trouble because there are less and less being reported hunted/Tags filled. All the while failing to report that there are less and less hunters! Also, many of those low to no skill jobs are going to be filled by robots in the near future. In part because of price and in part because you don't have to worry about robots complaining,not showing up or coming up hot on a pi$$ test. Even in areas where you still need hoo mans expect to see to robots there to augment and assist. IE Nursing.. Japan has critical shortages in nursing at this point, and, there like a here a big reason for this is many nurses are literally breaking their backs having to move patients. Sooo... instead of importing umpteen people from third world nations they have decided to build robots that can be moved from one room to the next which can pick patients up with ease and very gently. Not only is it safer for the patient but also saves the poor nurses backs.
Here it is actually worse as many elderly residents in nursing homes become quite obese, many also enter long term care on the large side as well. My younger daughter is a CNA and has come home many nights with an aching back and said flat out this is a huge reason for the high turn over in nursing. These bots are going to be huge when they start making to our shores.

It's stuff like this which sometimes makes me to think: ta' hell with it already. Just let the Zombie Apocalypse come already, a few months maybe a year the Zombies won't be a threat anymore and after that we can finally start over.
