The Inexorable Breaking of the Manufacturing Jobs Promise (through Dec 2013) January 11, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
Watching the President break his promises in slow motion is painful and tries our patience. But it is our sad duty.
So that “1 million manufacturing jobs in 4 years promise,” – how’s that doing?
I know these charts all look the same, but it’s not my fault. There’s always a positive trend, the President then capitalizes on the trend by saying that continuing the trend is part of his economic plan. And then as soon as he makes the promise (which was irresponsible to make since he had no power to keep it), the trend stops.
Sorry, manufacturing guys – in 15 months only 103K manufacturing jobs have been created, rather than the 312.5K we needed to stay on track for that 1 million number.
