    2014 January Job Cut Report: Planned Cuts Surge 50 Percent After falling to a 13-year low in December, monthly job cuts surged nearly 50 percent to kick off 2014, as U.S.-based employers announced plans to reduce their payrolls by 45,107 in January, according to the latest report on monthly job cuts released Thursday by global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. The 45,107 job cuts last month were 47 percent higher than a December total of 30,623, which was the lowest one-month total since 17,241 planned layoffs were announced in June 2000. January job cuts were up 12 percent...

    Good News! Non-farm payrolls increase by 165,000 and the unemployment rate declined to 7.5%. Bad News! It had to be helped by a 193,000 increase due to the BLS Birth/Death adjustment. May 3 (Bloomberg) — Employment picked up more than forecast in April and the jobless rate unexpectedly declined to a four-year low of 7.5 percent, showing federal budget cuts failed to destabilize the U.S. labor market. Payrolls expanded by 165,000 workers last month following a revised 138,000 increase in March that was larger than first estimated. The median forecast of 90 economists projected a 140,000 gain.

    U.S. labor unions paid MSNBC “Ed Show” host Ed Schultz roughly $200,000 in 2011, and roughly $337,000 over the last seven years, according to Department of Labor documents. Newsbusters first reported that the liberal TV talker received $190,000 from the Communications Workers of America for “representational activities” in 2011. CWA president Larry Cohen is a regular guest on Schultz’s radio program. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers also paid Schultz $9,900 last year. In 2010 his union salaries totaled a comparatively small $37,350. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME); the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW);...

    Job growth in the private sector continued at a modest pace in September, led by the service-producing sector and small businesses, according to a report released Wednesday. Automatic Data Processing ADP said payrolls increased 91,000 in September, compared with 89,000 in August, which marked a slight downward revision from the initial August print of 91,000. Economists had anticipated a gain of around 75,000 for September.

Economists were predicting the ADP figure would rise by about 100,000. The expansion for July was revised down to 109,000 from a prior estimate of 114,000... According to ADP, service-sector employment rose 80,000 in August, compared with 11,000 for the goods-producing sector. Small-business employment rose 58,000, compared with 30,000 for medium businesses and 3,000 for large businesses.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. unemployment rate surprisingly fell to a five-month low in January and factory payrolls grew for the first time since 2007, hinting at a labor market recovery even though the economy lost 20,000 jobs. The White House cautiously welcomed the figures but said more needed to be done to put people back to work. Democrats fear voters could punish them in November congressional elections if headway is not made in tackling unemployment. The decline in payrolls reported by the Labor Department on Friday was far smaller than the 150,000 drop posted in December. November's data from...

There are other positives in today’s report as well, particularly with respect to revisions, temporary hirings and length of work week. The Labor Department reported today that the U.S. economy shed 20,000 jobs last month, weaker than the expected 5,000 gain for the month.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. employers cut a deeper-than-expected 263,000 jobs in September, lifting the unemployment rate to 9.8 percent, according to a government report on Friday that fueled fears the weak labor market could undermine recovery from a prolonged recession. The Labor Department said the unemployment rate was the highest since June 1983 and payrolls had now dropped for 21 consecutive months. Analysts polled by Reuters had expected non-farm payrolls to drop 180,000 in September and the unemployment rate to rise to 9.8 percent from 9.7 percent the prior month. The poll was conducted before reports, including regional manufacturing surveys,...

    The American Thinker ^ | August 12, 2009 | Randall Hoven
    We are in a recession and our President has done something about it. What has he done? Spent well over a trillion dollars of other people's money, all borrowed. How well is that working now and how well have such "fixes" worked in the past? There is no real indication that our current recession is ending. The NBER dated the beginning of this recession based almost entirely on payrolls, which last peaked in December 2007. Payrolls have declined every single month since then, including the most recent month, July 2009. In July, payrolls declined by 247,000 jobs. That has been...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The nation's unemployment rate jumped to 8.5 percent in March, the highest since late 1983, as a wide range of employers eliminated a net total of 663,000 jobs. The Labor Department's report is fresh evidence of the toll the recession has inflicted on America's workers and companies. Most economists expect the job cuts will continue for much of this year. The latest tally of job losses, released Friday, was slightly higher than the 654,000 that economists expected. The rise in the unemployment rate matched expectations. Since the recession began in December 2007, the economy has lost a...

    U.S. payrolls jumped last month and the jobless rate fell, boosting the odds of moderate, consumer-driven economic growth and lowering the chances of any near-term reduction in official interest rates. Outside of manufacturing, payroll gains were broadly based, with construction and services posting healthy increases. Previous months' employment increases, meanwhile, were revised up. Nonfarm payrolls increased 180,000 in March, up from a revised 113,000 in February and 162,000 in January, the Labor Department said Friday. Those months were previously reported as increases of 97,000 and 146,000, respectively. The unemployment rate fell 0.1 percentage point to 4.4% last month, matching its...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The pace of U.S. worker productivity growth slowed at the end of 2004 and claims for jobless aid dipped last week, according to reports raising both job-growth hopes and inflation concerns. Separate reports on Thursday tempered the optimism as growth in the huge U.S. services sector cooled a bit last month while factory orders rose a mere 0.3 percent in December. Nonfarm business productivity, or worker output per hour, grew at an annual rate of just 0.8 percent in the fourth quarter, falling from the third quarter's 1.8 percent rate and the smallest advance since a drop...

Paul Bremer, Charles Duelfler, David Kay, Don Rumsfeld have tried to damage Bush this week. John Challenger says September was a bad month for hiring, in the 25,000 range. Kerry is being handed this election on a silver platter, how ironic that WMD Report and bad jobs report come out within 48 hours of debate.

The economy created surprisingly few jobs--a mere 32,000, 10 percent of the number Bush had been hoping for--in July. To add to the president's discomfort, the already low job-creation figures for May and June were revised downwards by about 50,000. This wounds Bush in key swing states such as Wisconsin and Ohio.

    The Daily Reckoning PRESENTS: The strong, compelling evidence of an economy that is as far away from a recovery as its disastrous job numbers. EMPLOYMENT DISASTER By Kurt Richebächer There has been much talk to the effect that America has just had its slightest recession in the whole postwar period. That is measured in real GDP growth, being bolstered by many statistical tricks. Measured, however, by job losses, which certainly are the far more important gauge, it is already America's worst recession by far.
