ALG - Labor market treading water as just as many leave labor force as find jobs

Oct. 22, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement on the latest jobs numbers:

"As many people left the labor force in September as found jobs, casting doubt on whether we have at all turned a corner in this dismal labor market. Since 2009, 10.1 million people have left the labor force, while only 2.15 million found jobs, based on the household survey. In the meantime, the working age population has increased by 11.4 million in that time.

"Every year, millions of potential workers are being displaced in the Obama economy, with no end in sight. This is a depression of sustained high joblessness, and no amount of sugarcoating can change what going forward is a very bleak outlook."

YRNF - The battle is on!

Lisa Stickan, the Chairman of the Young Republican National Federation released the following statement:

Four years ago, Barack Obama made promises to younger voters to deliver "hope and change". Four years later, these same voters are faced with a job market where 53% of recent college graduates are unemployed or underemployed.

President Obama has completely failed our generation by driving us farther into debt while worsening our job market and economic opportunity with his big government mentality.

Meanwhile, the President has never stopped campaigning. According to the Washington Post, he has already had more first-term fundraisers than George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter combined. This President would rather campaign, making more promises he will never fulfill, than govern our country and fight for average Americans.

Here in Ohio, we are fortunate to have brave, conservative leadership from Governor John Kasich, who has demonstrated that Republican leaders can deliver on their promises of delivering jobs and prosperity through a smaller, more responsive government.

Young Republicans in Ohio and across this country will fight every day to return our country to the path of economic prosperity for all Americans, especially our generation who President Obama has failed with broken promises and little hope.


31,000 fewer Americans employed in March than February, ALG Responds

April 6, 2012, Fairfax, VA--Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson issued the following statement on the just released March unemployment rate.

"Obama's U.S. Department of Labor loses more credibility every month as they announced a lower unemployment rate in March, while at the same time 31,000 fewer Americans actually had jobs than the previous month.  In spite of all the happy talk out of Obama's official Washington, D.C., the fact is that fewer Americans were working last month than the previous one.  That is not a recovery, it is an economic disaster for millions of families.

"The fact is, since Obama took office 4.683 million people have dropped out of the labor force. If they were included in today's unemployment report, the jobless rate would be 10.8 percent, and the underemployed rate 17 percent. All together 27.1 million Americans cannot find full-time work in the Obama economy."

Americans for Limited Government will be releasing an update of their article, "Understanding the Unemployment Rate" within the hour incorporating and providing analysis of the March unemployment data.
