Perspecive On Unemployment
Click here for the chart.
Starting in 2008, the Bush economy steadily lost more and more jobs until in January of 2009, over 800,000 non-farm jobs were evaporating on a monthly basis.
Then something happened. Job losses started going down, and starting in March of 2010 the economy started adding jobs.
We are still digging ourselves out of the hole dug by the previous administration, but over 100,000 jobs on average are being added to the economy each month.
Yes, I know that there are a number of discouraged workers who are no longer seeking jobs, but the overall trend is crystal clear.
Obama’s policies have added jobs to the economy.
