Not even the census hirings are correct because they hired and fired the same people over and over to bump the numbers.

All the analysts have been crowing the last couple days that there would be 500,000+ jobs created with 150,000+ in the private sector are feeling mighty stupid now.

Most of the jobs created were census jobs and government workers.

A drop in the bucket for private sector jobs.

And they say the economy is recovering? Hah! What a load of horseshit.

In other news, 431,000-411,000= 41,000 according to the BLS.

Not generally within the same month. But 600K temporary census hires are almost half a percent of our entire workforce, so take that crutch out and unemployment continues to worsen.

As a previous poster mentioned, they thought there would be around 150K private sector jobs plus the 400k Census related.

More smoke and mirrors. All the average moronic American will see is the 9.7% unem rate which the MSM will be happy to report. And that’s ALL they will report.

Several months ago, Stuart Varney of FoxNews said that the economy would have to be creating 200,000 jobs per week (non-governmental) to have any impact on the jobless numbers.

New UE’s are still close to half-a-million per week.

With "only" 300k of them census temps.

A big difference between 400k plus and 300k. Epic Obami FAIL!

Part of the drop in unemployment rate was due to discouraged workers. The labor force dropped by 322K.

431,000 is NON-FARM payroll. I’m assuming the 41,000 includes FARM payroll.

June 4 — Employers in the U.S. hired fewer workers in May than forecast, showing a lack of confidence in the recovery that may lead to slower economic growth.

Payrolls rose by 431,000 last month after a 290,000 increase in April, figures from the Labor Department in Washington showed today. The gain was smaller than the 536,000 median forecast.

“More smoke and mirrors. All the average moronic American will see is the 9.7% unem rate which the MSM will be happy to report. And that’s ALL they will report.”

Precisely. This, combined with the unending unemployment insurance is to keep the populace form seeing the big picture. I not the UE benefits were only extended to the elections, that way if the libsget voted out of office, the problem will be dumped into the lap of the incoming Congress.

It’s sick that people won’t pay more attention. We’re in the destabilization phase up to our chests, and next (According to Griffen) comes the Crisis phase. It’s sad really. We’ve gotta prepare ourselves, no one else can.

I can’t imagine that the average American will be impressed with the official unemployment rate....

More people are actively searching for nonexistent jobs, first-time unemployment claims are continuing unabated and the hundreds of thousands of census workers know their jobs are temporary.

Can’t wait to see the numbers when they’re laid off.

I bet a lot of the ‘20K’ people that were hired were summer help, and temps for vaca coverage etc.

“More people are actively searching for nonexistent jobs”

Sadly, I read an article that described this as hopeful, becaus eit meant that more people moved from the U6 over to whatever they use now, because they started looking for more jobs, so even though they make the unemployment numbers go higher, they (according to the writer), show that the situation isn’t so bleak.

I’ve never heard such nonsense in my life.

I'm going to pull out my crystal ball and make a prediction...

The census is scheduled to start laying off these temporary census workers by the end of July. My prediction is that democrats with the help of the MSM are going to start a drumbeat about census turnout still being to low. Then they will approve "emergency" funding to keep these census temps sitting on the federal payroll until after the November elections.

That is why all must cooperate with the census. Just don’t give them any information they do not need like how much money you make. Besides the feds already know that anyway (the IRS, remember?)

More job losses coming in Gulf Coast over the next six months. Unemployment could easily exceed 10 percent by Nov 2.

The other 41,000 were people trailing behind census workers with carts who sold donuts, coffee and hot dogs.

More than 20,000 people in the workforce DIE each month and must be replaced.

To have the very lowest caliber president imaginable at this time is a travesty.

Well, in all hyperbole and fairness, I’m willing to bet that the stimulus is doing exactly what those who pushed it through wanted it to do: line their (and their friends) pockets, while seeling us down the river.
