My company alone added 30 jobs in June. Part time, less than $9 per hour.

Of those 30 new hires, by the beginning of July, 15 had quit.....

Turnover ratio is everything.....

Or maybe not..... it is tourist season here, most jobs that hire here during the spring-summer months aren't full time nor permanent. But you never know...

Obamacare Effect On Jobs: Part-Time Outgains Full-Time As Businesses Scale Back


July 8, 2013 by Ben Bullard

Obamacare Effect On Jobs: Part-Time Outgains Full-Time As Businesses Scale Back
PHOTOS.COM

The unemployment rate in the United States for the month of June dallied at 7.6 percent, a number attended by the reported addition of 360,000 new part-time jobs — a record high. Such a big jump was hailed at the White House as a sign that the economy continues to benefit from the 2009 American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA).

What the numbers really show is that full-time, “quality” jobs are being supplanted on a massive scale as companies steady their workforce numbers ahead of the implementation of Obamacare. The labor force lost 240,000 full-time jobs in June, continuing a trend that has seen 557,000 part-time jobs in the United States outpace the comparatively paltry 130,000 new full-time positions since the first of the year.

Thank Obamacare, which mandates businesses employing more the 50 people to contribute toward health coverage for anyone who’s been hired to work more than 30 hours per week — or face paying per-employee penalties to the government (via the Internal Revenue Service).

195k does sound good I guess, but a number I keep hearing causes a little concern. There are 9 million less people working today than 10 years ago. I hope that number decreases but....

If Obama could just have a 3rd term I'm sure things would turn around.

There are going to be even more. Baby boomers are retiring. When the economy collapse happened one of my friends who is an IBEW worker retired rather than sit on unemployment waiting to get called out by the local. Many people won't be coming back. But that's OK.

Interest rates rising, fuel prices are still high (Which I think deserves investigation) Auto purchases are up and I will tell ya one thing, I think some of the Fords, Chevys and Dodges are looking pretty sharp.

Yeah, I get there are still issues to deal with and wouldn't it be great if our elected officials actually worked harder at making government work better instead of spending most of their times playing partisan politics and trying to gain power. It's like a friggin sport when it shouldn't be.

Jobs report shows steady growth as U.S. added 195,000 jobs in June


The U.S. economy added 195,000 jobs in June, continuing a trend of steady growth as private hiring across a broad spectrum of industries offset declines in government and manufacturing employment.

While not enough to push down the 7.6 percent unemployment rate, the number beat analysts’ forecasts and stoked expectations that the Federal Reserve will begin reducing its support for U.S. financial markets this fall.

The composition of job gains and losses reflected both what appears to be a durable U.S. recovery and weaker demand for U.S. goods in places such as Europe, which is still in the midst of a recession, and China, where growth has begun to slow.

U.S. exports have been disappointingly flat in recent months and have become a drag on the manufacturing sector, but domestic spending has helped to spur job growth in areas such as retail.

“It is consistent with what we have seen in consumer confidence increasing and households feeling in a stronger position to spend,” said Alan Krueger, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Krueger said that despite the overall decline in manufacturing, hiring in some industries, such as autos, remained strong; and there is hope that as the housing sector strengthens, it will boost demand for appliances, furniture, building materials and other manufactured goods.

The monthly jobs report is considered among the most important barometers of the economy. It is taking on additional importance now because of its influence on when the Fed will begin to reduce the monthly asset purchases with which it has been supporting the U.S. economy — a key issue in the debate over domestic and global economic policy. The Fed has tied the end of its asset purchases to progress on reducing joblessness.

Interest rates on U.S. Treasury bonds headed higher after Friday’s report as investors continued to bet that the Fed will follow through on its “tapering” plans and reduce asset purchases in coming months. Declining demand for financial assets like Treasury bonds increases the interest rate that the seller must offer and drives down the price.

Stock investors, on the contrary, were buoyed by the evidence of steady economic growth. Major U.S. stock markets were higher through the day and closed up about 1 percent.

Officials and analysts across the spectrum agreed the report was a positive one: Both House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and the more liberal Economic Policy Institute referred to it as “good news.”

One positive development: The labor participation rate remained steady at 63.5 percent and has remained roughly constant for about a year now after a period when unemployed workers were becoming discouraged and ending active job hunts. Along with the healthy addition of jobs in June, the Labor Department revised its previous employment estimates for April and May upward by 70,000 jobs.

But joblessness remains high. There are 11.8 million people out of work — 4.3 million of whom have been without a job for more than half a year — and another 8.2 million working part time because they cannot find full-time jobs, an increase of more than 320,000 from May. Overall, the number of people with full-time jobs remains 2.5 million below the peak it hit in November 2007.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/busine...80_story.html:
I think the last paragraph sums it up. If government wants more revenue, they need to do what it takes to put those 11.8 million people back to work, then we will have more money to expand government, and isn't that what dems want?
