Job Recovery Has Stagnated in 2016 December 3, 2016Posted by geoff in News.
Didn’t have time to post on yesterday’s humdrum Employment Situation Report, but I’m here for you today. Most articles written by Obama-fawners emphasized that nearly 180K jobs were created, while most articles written by his foes emphasized the large number of people leaving the workforce. Here’s my take:
I think it’s easy to see that this year has not been a particularly good one for full-time job recovery. We may have reached a new normal, at least normal under this administration.
Hopefully the incoming administration can light a fire under the employment situation.
