    U.S. Unemployment Up in February
    Underemployment is 19.1%, up from 18.7% in January
    by Dennis Jacobe, Chief EconomistPRINCETON, NJ -- U.S. unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, increased to 9.1% in February from 8.6% in January and 8.5% in December.


    The 0.5-percentage-point increase in February compared with January is the largest such month-to-month change Gallup has recorded in its not-seasonally adjusted measure since December 2010, when the rate rose 0.8 points to 9.6% from 8.8% in November. A year ago, Gallup recorded a February increase of 0.4 percentage points, to 10.3% from 9.9% in January 2011.

    In addition to the 9.1% of U.S. workers who are unemployed, 10.0% are working part time but want full-time work. This percentage is similar to the 10.1% in January, but is higher than the 9.6% of February 2011.

    Why is he getting rid of Obamacare, his so called green energy policy and all the epa crap and other overregulation? :rolleyes:

    We remember the promises he made about the effects of his stimulus plan, obamacare and 'green energy' on 'creating' jobs.

    Just a hint the administration wasn't predicting 9%+ Unemployment numbers 3 years in.

    As a moderator you should ask mr. posteriordomas to provide his source so we all can see what he is referring to.. instead of just jumping on the bandwagon.

    U.S. Unemployment Up in February

    Midway down, it lists how it differs from BLS, not seasonally adjusted and those 18 and up, not 16 years old....

    It's not too hard to find. It's the lead story on the Gallup site:

    YOu do know that the Daily Caller is Bow Tie Boy, Tucker Carlson's site, don't you???

    You are also aware that UNDER REAGAN - the way unemployment numbers are calculated by the Dept of Labor Statistics was changed - if you run out your unemployment without actually finding a new job, you are no longer counted, so Reagan's "improvement" of unemployment numbers were mostly due to attrition from the unemployment rolls.

    Now they want to change it back... change the rules and everything looks better or worse, dependent on where you sit.

    Yep we need more tax breaks for the rich, that will solve the problem....

    Yep we need to de-regulate everything, who need's clean air and water, who needs to make a fair wage......

    Yep we need to drill baby drill! Forget about renewable energy Oil will last forever......

    Get rid of Healthcare reform, who needs health insurance anyways.....Stupid sick people, that are poor.....

    We all need to read Ann Rand......

    We need to start another war, that will help too!

    The holiday season is over, people are getting laid off, its normal....In case you didn't know, the rest of the world is in the same boat....Things go up, things go down, its the flow of life, learn about it.

    If doing the right thing is hurting us, like making sure we have healthcare and regulations that protect us all, then i guess that speaks to a bigger problem.......

    :cool:

    Edit: Wall Street made record profits this year, same with oil,gas,computer companies, and a ton of others, were is it all going? Not to new jobs or to things that help but to the rich.....to become richer! Remember more is never enough!


    Greed will be our downfall, being successful dosen't mean being rich, being successful means being a good person, a single mother of 3 working two jobs, a dad that takes an extra shift to help feed his family, a boss that gives raises and hires new people, a teacher that helps out after hours to help his/her students, a doctor that gives pro-bono healthcare....

    Not some rich guy on wall street or some idiot that runs for Prez touting how rich he is and that makes him successful....i guess that's what makes some people different, some think that making money makes you successful and i and others know thats not true, what makes someone successful is being a good person.

    Isn't it obvious that everything Obama has tried is a failure?

    Depends, on what your meaning of failure is?

    Like i said, he could lower taxes to 0% and de-regulate everything and be a success, but at what cost?

    Is doing the right thing and being a failure a bad thing?
    Or is being a success and doing the wrong thing worth it?

    This speaks to a bigger problem we have in our world, that doing the right thing makes you a failure but doing the wrong thing makes you a success.....

    I would rather stand by a just man who is a failure, then stand beside a coward that is a success....:bricks:

    Happy - This isnt meant to be a poke, or a shot at your post, some of it I agree with but I did want to share something regarding the above point and question you asked.

    I work for a Financial company, which has stock traded on Wall St, but is not making huge profits currently.

    The leader of the co. I work for said at a recent meeting that there will be no new hires until November....because they want to see the results of the election.

    If the results go one way, they will start hiring, if they go another, they will continue to make do with the work force they have.

    Just a little anecdote I felt like sharing. Not that I agree with it or not, just food for thought.

    You're the one who made too sweeping a comment. You were wrong.


    Definitely true.

    I know you weren't commenting, but your CEO sounds like a bit of a fool.

    maybe there'd be more profits if he based his workforce requrements on something other than election results 8 months out :)

    When you post something they don't like or agree with they will always attack you and THE SOURCE, never the fact itself.
