Shocking Numbers That Show The Media Is Lying To You About Unemployment In America

FOUND ON THE INTERNET:

 

Did you know that the percentage of the U.S. labor force that is
employed has continually been falling since 2006 according to the
Bureau of Labor Statistics? Did you know that the increase in the
number of Americans “not in the labor force” during Barack Obama’s
first four years in the White House was more than three times greater
than the increase in the number of Americans “not in the labor force”
during the entire decade of the 1980s? The mainstream media would
have us believe that 157,000 jobs were added to the U.S. economy
in January. Based on that news, the Dow broke the 14,000 barrier
for the first time since October 2007. But if you actually look
at the “non-seasonally adjusted” numbers, the number of Americans
with a job actually decreased by 1,446,000 between December and
January. But nowhere in the mainstream media did you hear that the
U.S. economy lost more than 1.4 million jobs between December and
January. It is amazing the things that you can find out when you
actually take the time to look at the hard numbers instead of just
listening to the media spin. Back in 2007, more than 146 million
Americans were employed.  Today, only 141.6 million Americans
are employed even though our population has grown steadily since
then. When the government and the media tell you that we are in a
“recovery” and that unemployment is lower than it was a couple of
years ago, I encourage you to dig deeper. The truth is that even
the government’s own numbers tell us that the percentage of the
U.S. labor force that is employed continues to fall and that the
U.S. economy is heading into a recession. The Obama administration
and the media have been lying to you about unemployment and about
the true condition of our economy.  After you see the numbers that
I have compiled in this article, I think that you will agree with me.

First of all, let’s take a look at the percentage of the civilian
labor force that has been employed over the past several years.
These numbers come directly from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
As you can see, this is a number that has been steadily falling
since 2006:

2006: 63.1
2007: 63.0
2008: 62.2
2009: 59.3
2010: 58.5
2011: 58.4

In January, only 57.9 percent of the civilian labor force was
employed.

Do the numbers above represent a positive trend or a negative trend?

Even a 2nd grader could answer that question.

So how in the world can the Obama administration and the mainstream
media claim that the employment picture is getting better and that
we are in a “recovery”?

But most Americans believe what they are told. It is almost as if
we are in some kind of a “matrix” where reality is defined by the
corporate-controlled propaganda that is relentlessly pumped into
our brains.

The only way that the government has been able to show a declining
unemployment rate is by dumping massive numbers of Americans into
the “not in the labor force” category.

Just check out how the number of Americans “not in the labor force”
has absolutely skyrocketed in recent years;

2006: 77,387,000
2007: 78,743,000
2008: 79,501,000
2009: 81,659,000
2010: 83,941,000
2011: 86,001,000

In January, there were supposedly 89,868,000 Americans that were
at least 16 years of age that were not in the labor force.

That number has risen by more than 8 million since Barack Obama
first entered the White House, and that is highly unusual, because
the number of Americans “not in the labor force” only increased
by 2,518,000 during the entire decade of the 1980s.

You sure can get the numbers to look more “favorable” if you
pretend that millions upon millions of American workers simply
“don’t want a job” any longer. The truth is that if the labor force
participation rate was at the same level it was at when Barack
Obama was first elected, the official unemployment rate would be
well above 10 percent.

But that wouldn’t do at all, would it? 7.9 percent sounds so
much nicer.

And of course even if you do have a job that does not mean that
you are doing okay.

If you can believe it, in America today 41 percent of all workers
make $20,000 a year or less.

To me, that is a mind blowing statistic. It would be incredibly
challenging for anyone to live on $20,000 a year, much less try to
support a family.

If you live in Washington D.C. or New York City and you have a
“good job” working for the establishment, you may not realize
it, but there are tens of millions of American families that are
really hurting out there. According to the U.S. Census Bureau,
more than 146 million Americans are either “poor” or “low income”
at this point, and most of those people actually do have jobs.

For much more on the “working poor” in the United States, please
see my previous article entitled “35 Statistics About The Working
Poor In America That Will Blow Your Mind”.

If something is not done, the middle class will continue to
disappear and poverty in America will continue to explode.

In a previous article, I noted that during Obama’s first term,
the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of
about 11,000 per day.

How bad do things have to get before people realize that we are
living through a nightmare?

Sadly, most Americans still have faith in the system.

Most Americans are still convinced that our politicians will somehow
find a way to turn things around.

Most Americans will gather around their television sets this weekend
and watch the Super Bowl and laugh at all the funny commercials
without even thinking about how America is literally falling apart
all around them.

But there is one group of Americans that is acutely aware of how bad
things have really gotten. Small businesses have traditionally been
the primary engine of job growth in this country, but right now small
business owners all over the nation are facing a tremendous crisis.

Millions of small businesses are on the verge of extinction, and
yet our politicians just continue to pile on more taxes, more rules
and more regulations.

A recent Gallup poll found that 61 percent of all small business
owners in America are “worried about the potential cost of
healthcare”, and that an astounding 30 percent of all small business
owners in America are not hiring and fear that they will go out of
business within the next 12 months.

In a previous article entitled “We Are
Witnessing The Death Of Small Business In America”

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/we-are-witnessing-the-death-of-small-business-in-america,

I detailed how small businesses in America are being systematically
wiped out. Small businesses are dying all around us, and the number
of new small businesses continues to decline.

According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the decline
in the number of startup jobs per one thousand Americans breaks
down by presidential administrationâ¦

Bush Sr.: 11.3
Clinton: 11.2
Bush Jr.: 10.8
Obama: 7.8

Is that a good trend or a bad trend?

All of this is so simple that even the family pet should be able
to figure it out, and yet most Americans seem oblivious to all of
this. They just keep gobbling up the mainstream media propaganda
and they just continue to go out and wildly spend money.

It is almost as if we didn’t learn any lessons from 2008.

Even while household spending in Europe has moderated, household
spending in the United States continues to soar.

And guess what? The infamous “no money down mortgages” are back. If
we wait long enough, perhaps “interest only mortgages” will make
a comeback as well.

Unfortunately, I am afraid that time is running out. we have been
living in the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world,
and it is only a matter of time until it bursts.

2008 was just a “hiccup” compared to what is coming. Our politicians
and the Federal Reserve were able to keep the house of cards from
completely crashing down back then, but they are not going to be
able to avert the economic horror show that is rapidly approaching.

I hope that you are getting prepared. Back in 2008, millions of
Americans suddenly lost their jobs, and because many of them did
not have any savings, many of them suddenly lost their homes. One
of the most important things that you can do to prepare for the
coming crisis is to build up an emergency fund.  If things suddenly
go bad, you don’t want to lose your house and everything that you
have always worked for.

In addition, anything that you can do to become more self-sufficient
and more independent of the system is a good thing, because the
system is failing. The years ahead are going to be much more chaotic
than what we are experiencing right now, and when the next crisis
strikes you will be very thankful for the time and the energy that
you put into preparing.

So what are all of you seeing in your own areas?

Are businesses shutting down?

Are people having a hard time finding good jobs?

What is the big LOSER(u-bam-a) doing about this?

Is he creating more jobs?  No.  Is he lying about it?  Yes.  Is he blaming the innocent for his failures?  Yes.   Is he going to leave a legacy for the American people?  Definitely.   What will that legacy be?   That of a highly incompetent individual who truly hates the United States.

Prepare yourself for worse.

 

The facts no one wants to read.
