    FYI, gas now national average 3.83 a gallon, no wonder all the new job hires, people need to work 2 or 3 jobs to survive.

    So, this is one of the threads where you complain about higher prices, not one of the threads where you are complaining about people complaining about higher prices? And you are doing so to avoid discussing the topic of the thread, right?

    spoken like a true stalker,knowing where and what i post, should i be scared?by the way, i never complain about people complaining about higher prices because they are preaching to the choir on that issue.i am not avoiding the topic, just opioning on that maybe some of those jobs are second and third jobs for some, or a job that means a 2 job household to make ends meet.

    I can just envision that poster watching the news last night and cheering as the Russians shelled the nuclear power plant. "This could be so bad for Biden, I love it!" Probably.

    Here is one example of you complaining about people complaining about higher prices:

    So should we apply the same logic to your contributions to this thread?

    Your ignorance is showing. That's not how it works. The employment number counts total people employed, not total jobs. So a person with 2 jobs still just counts as 1.

    so if 700,000 new jobs are added, but 350,000 of them go to people already with a job, only 350,000 people became employed,right?

    This is the employment situation. So yes, the figure would be 350K in that scenario. The unit is at the individual person level.

    Looks like we'll need more immigrants to fill some of these jobs. That's probably what it will take.

    Strong economy and rational leadership. Biden is putting on a clinic proving that even an 80 year old with mediocre speaking skills can run this country better than anyone in the Republican Party.
