    The people on the taxpayers payroll went up by 324,000 in Aug while the private sector lost 278,000 jobs. If obama cant help business create jobs he can put them on the peoples payroll

    "(CNSNews.com) – The number of workers employed by the government went up 324,000 between July and August while the number of workers in the private sector declined 278,000, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

    In the employment numbers released today, the BLS shows there were 20,041,000 government workers in July 2013. In August, that number had climbed to 20,365,000 – an increase of 324,000 people on the government payroll.

    That’s government employment level, seasonally adjusted, for male and female workers ages 16 and over.

    That's how we got out of all our previous recessions. Not creating more government jobs and instead cutting them has been what has kept us in this recession so long.

    The govt does, of course. They just print money and pay them.

    That's what Hussein supporters believe anyway...lol

    I doubt that's true or there's some explanation like teachers going back to work.

    Unfortunately neither source has a link to the actual numbers, but only one of them can be correct.

    Yep, here's the real numbers from the BLS: Federal govt up 20,000 (after going down 23,000 the month before.) State govt up 3,000. Local govt up 20,000, all in education.

    In most cases the summer break for teachers is considered a vacation. Also, most teachers are under contract and under benefits for the entire year.Some school districts offer the options of being paid monthly or semi-monthly through out the entire year. In almost all of these cases teachers are not consider to be unemployed during the summer break.

    We didn't learn much from the Great Depression. We hired people to do stuff and we had a great amount of debt as a result. It took WW2 to get us out of our doldrums.

    But as long as the stats show job growth, the administration can spin it.

    let's see, so far we've got BLS figures that say the CNS piece is completely wrong, and absolutely nothing to say it's right.
