The Obama administration and the ruling class as a whole are seeking to spin the recent jobs figures to create the image of a strongly rebounding economy and an end to the jobs crisis. Under the cover of this phony recovery, both political parties will mount an escalating attack on the already inadequate benefits provided to jobless workers.
These numbers are all about politicians winning or losing the 2012 elections. Lies and distortions. Things aren't really better at all. 58,000 factories either closed outright or moved overseas in the last 12 years. Same political bickering in Washington. The attack on the middle class by Republicans continues unabated. Skyrocketing grocery, gas, and other essentials prices. Same poor job market. Most companies that are hiring are in low paying retail, restaurant, and hospitality. We are fast becoming a service industry country because of the loss of manufacturing. This country cannot survive in it's present state (a service industry country). I have a retail job now that pays $8.25 per hour and I am very grateful that I was hired but wonder how my wife and I will be able to afford health insurance when it becomes available. Our personal debt is massive (just like our government's). I really feel only a little better because I do have a job but only see the future of the country as bleak at best.
