The economy continues to add jobs in proportion to population growth. Nothing less, nothing more. http://economix.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/03/keeping-up-not-getting-ahead/?hp
This is an article from todays New York Times, please follow the link to finish reading it. I was just about to sit down and write a very similar piece and then I saw this. It blows my mind; all the top news media is reporting todays jobs report like we are finally out of the woods and everything is great. We are only creating enough jobs to keep up with population growth, thats it. The overall unemployment number went up to 13.9%. We have an unemployment crisis and its being completely ignored by President Obama, Congress, and the Media for the most part.
