Today, I ran across conflicting numbers about the nation’s employment situation. You decide who’s telling the truth.
One set of claims (above) comes from Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO). In a graphic on her Facebook page. She shares this: “ICYMI: The economy has added 12.3 million private sector jobs in the last 62 months.” In case you missed it, Claire, the economy is in the toilet thanks to you and your president’s misguided and dangerous policies and actions.
A second set of claims comes from the popular website, Zero Hedge, and is accompanied by the an explanation that describes the April 2015 jobs payroll report as “unambiguously” unpleasant and indicative of “the accelerating deterioration of the broader economy.”
Finally, a set of numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the civilian labor force participation rate in the form of a chart that resembles a playground slide more accurately than it does anything positive about the economy.
All that in mind, please take my advice: DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU RE-ELECT ANY DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS SLIPPERY SLOPE.
