Unexpected: Jobs Report Only Adds 84K Jobs, Less Than Predicted 100K

I almost expect Team Obama to claim Mitt Romney outsourced all the missing jobs.

The June Non-farm Payroll number of 80,000 comes below expectations of 100,000. Private payrolls miss even worse, at 84,000 below consensus of 106,000. Unemployment rate prints at 8.2%, inline with expectations.

More here.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics said private payrolls increased 84,000, while the government lost 4,000 jobs.

Don’t forget two years ago Joe Biden was boldly claiming this failed administration would be adding 500,000 jobs a month.

How’s that working out?

Just imagine if the media was interested in reporting things fairly.

    20-22%: What the total unemployment rate would be looking like right now if unemployment was reported the same way it was before Clinton took office.

    We give out about 100,000 to 125,000 green cards every month. We let in tens of thousands of illegals every month and there are more young people entering the work force than people hitting 65 …yet we have a falling unemployment rates over the last year?

    The Obamboozler has put more bodies on Disability than into the ranks of the employed.
