Unemployment at 9.4%.... 100k+ new jobs created... Baloney! Look at the non-seasonally adjusted data http://bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t17.htm Nov. 131,871 Dec. 131,514 There was a decrease of 357,000 jobs in December. Keep in mind that December is a month of heavy every hiring for temp workers due to the Christmas rush. Yet we still lost 357 thousand jobs !! How the adjusted data showed a 100k gain is complete and utter bull. The economy needs about 125k monthly in new job creation just to keep up with population growth. I truly feel bad for those who went to college, spent 100k on a useless degree, and now cant even get a job flipping burgers or cleaning toilets.
