Yesterday, before the official employment figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics were released, a private accounting firm that reports on PRIVATE sector jobs every month, reported that 176,000 jobs
were created in the Private
Sector in June. That's pretty damn good. But they noted that they do not report Public
sector jobs, and that would be done by the BLS the next day.
So the "Official" numbers come out today reporting a NET
80,000 new jobs created last month.
If the Private sector created 176,000 jobs, then does that mean Federal/State/Local governments cut NINETY-SIX THOUSAND JOBS IN ONE MONTH??? (for reference, that's almost half the number lost in the prior five months COMBINED.)
If that turns out to be true, that suggests Republicans are MASSIVELY sabotaging the Recovery by going on a firing binge with the express purpose of crashing the economy in time for the election.http://mugsysrapsheet.com/2012/07/06/17 ... -just-80k/
