Manufacturing Jobs Report, Jan 2015 January 12, 2015Posted by geoff in News.
President Obama continues to crow over the (belated) “success” of his economic policies, despite the fact that he and his advisers have missed every prediction that they made. Speaking of failed predictions, I’m sure you were wondering how his promise to add 1 million manufacturing jobs by September 2016 is doing.
Like all of his promises, not very well:
To put his promise in perspective, there were 13,036,000 manufacturing jobs in the month President Obama was first elected. Today, after 6 years of incredible economic stimulus, there are only 12,239,000.
If he makes his +1 million manufacturing job goal (which doesn’t seem likely), he’ll still be almost 100,000 jobs short of where we were in Nov ’08.
After 8 years of sheer awesomeness.
