Today, after five years of Obama as president, we still have not recovered the jobs lost since the latest recession began in December 2007. The economy then was employing 146.273 million Americans.
More than six years later, in January 2014, the number of Americans employed was still only 145.244 million, or about 1 million fewer jobs. By now in the normal recovery there would be 6 million more jobs.
But remember, this is actually *good* news because it means employees have been freed from “job-lock.” And people who formerly had to work can now spend time with their families and make art and such like. Besides, Nancy Pelosi told us that unemployment is the best form of stimulus.
Unemployment is Stimulus. Depression is Prosperity. Obama is a Genius. And the chocolate ration is increased to 32 grams.
