President Obama and the Missing Manufacturing Jobs May 3, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
Now that you’ve had a chance to digest April’s unemployment numbers, it’s time to play “Where Are the 1 Million Manufacturing Jobs President Obama Promised?”
Here’s a lovely chart that shows you just how far off track we are from the President’s irresponsible promise. Manufacturing employment has picked up a bit over the past 6 months, but we’ve still only added 158K jobs since the Democratic National Convention in 2012. By this point we should have added 396K.
This president has a mysterious power that kills off any economic green shoots as soon as he makes a promise, so I guess we should be grateful for any growth at all.
