USA 41 percent of America unemployed, one-third doesn’t want work at all

The real jobs numbers: 41 percent of America unemployed, one-third doesn’t want work at all

33% percent of Americans don’t have a job and don’t want one

41 percent of America unemployed, one-third doesn’t want work at all

Even if the US Labor Department has determined that the unemployment level has finally plateaued after months of staggering jobs statistics, the truth behind the numbers isn’t all that nice. Only four out of every ten adults in the US is employed.

While the percentage of Americans filing jobless benefit claims isn’t what it was during an unemployment epidemic that ravaged the country throughout the majority of US President Barack Obama’s administration, the Labor Department’s numbers are largely inflated on account of how they determine what actually constitutes looking for work.

Officially, the unemployment rate in America for the month of September was only 7.8 percent, but that statistic stems from only the number of citizens who have been actively searching for a paycheck. In actuality, only around 5 percent of the adult population in the US is unemployed in the eyes of the government because they have been handing in applications during the four weeks before the Labor Department conducted their research. Additionally, another 3 percent are interested in work but haven’t actively engaged in a job hunting during that span, roughly creating an unemployment figure of just under 8 percent.

The real figures, however, reveal a much scarier statistic.

“The employment-to-population ratio is the best measure of labor market conditions and it currently shows that there has been almost no improvement whatsoever over the past three years,” Paul Ashworth, chief North American economist for Capital Economics, writes in a note to clients obtained by CNN. That figure, which accounts for the proportion of working Americans compared with the number of adults in the country, is a lot higher than 8 percent.

For now, 58.7 percent of American adults are working if the actual employment-population ratio is taken into consideration, leaving about 82 million, or almost 41 percent of people unemployed. Only 8 percent, however, are even interested in work, leaving 33 percent of Americans not only jobless — but in no desire for work.

“The ratio expresses more clearly how many people find working to be a ‘good or attractive deal,’” Tyler Cowen, economist and director of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, adds to CNN.

If the numbers seem drastic, it’s because they are. So rampant in fact is the country’s seeming disregard for work that other just released statistics show that funding welfare programs for the American population was the most expensive endeavor undertaken in all of Fiscal Year 2011.

Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee released findings this week showing that the government spent roughly $1.03 trillion on welfare programs last year, funding 83 separate efforts to provide assistance to Americans. Days earlier, a separate study out of Capitol Hill revealed that the number of people enrolled to receive federal assistance by way of food stamps has hit a new record high with roughly 47million US residents.

“These astounding figures demonstrate that the United States spends more on federal welfare than any other program in the federal budget,” Alabama Sen. Jeff Session writes in a letter provided to The Daily Caller this week. “It is time to restore — not retreat from — the moral principles of the 1996 welfare reform. Such reforms, combined with measures to promote growth, will help both the recipient and the Treasury.”

“No longer should we measure compassion by how much money the government spends, but by how many people we help to rise out of poverty,” Sessions adds. “Welfare assistance should be seen as temporary whenever possible, and the goal must be to help more of our fellow citizens attain gainful employment and financial independence.

This is about more than rescuing our finances. It’s about creating a more optimistic future for millions of struggling Americans.”

America how are you altering the cycle of consumerism!

State of the World 2010: Transforming Cultures...

State of the World 2010: Transforming Cultures: From Consumerism to Sustainabiliy (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Many citizens of capitalist countries grow up in cultures that praise individualism and define success as owning bigger and better things.

Is this part of any party platform in the USA?

However, psychologists argue that a consumerist approach leaves many people unhappy. Some are challenging the consumption equals happiness mentality by intentionally living with less.

So how are people altering the cycle of consumerism?

The USA is a nation of consumers and they forget that having more than they need does not lead them to happiness! In most cases it leads to their demise, and they become greedy and loose site of those that can’t and have not the means to cope with society!

Neither Presidential candidate has addressed the pros and cons of consumerism in the United States? Having more and buying more is not the answer to success! You just think it is but look at what happens when you the successful person looses that all high paying job! You loose your dignity because you can not afford those things in which you thought made you a success! You lose your house, you loose your fancy car ect.

Now What! Oh! It can’t happen to me! Who are you kidding?

USA flushed down the toilet! by Obama!

The USA is being flushed down the toilet. They have lost all sense of morality! Gays and same-sex marriages are winning the war and America is letting it happen. Whatever happened to our country? America has changed from a country believing in God, into a country that worships MONEY, and no man can worship two Gods!

Obama will ultimately destroy the USA, and lead it further into being a bankrupt economy. Democrats are the true bureaucrats of the times, they hunger for our destruction and they believe that they know what is best for the USA! Only the founding fathers knew what was best and they created the basis of our way of life. Obama in four years has caused the USA to become a second-rate country headed downward even further. Our credit ratings are the worst in history.

Obama Care, does that mean that we become a Socialist country which is next to communism. Is that what you the American Citizens wants? Well I don’t! Democrats you brought this President on-board, and you will have to live with-it.

REVELATIONS 22 VERSE 12-16- Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, The First and the Last, “The Beginning and the End” Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolators and everyone who practices falsehood.

Even the Bible speaks about those who practice falsehoods, and following is a list of OBAMA”S lies!

The Curiosity robot landed successfully on Mars on Monday to launch an ambitious mission for traces of life in an unprecedented event for NASA never sent a robot to another planet as sophisticated and opens a new era of exploration of Mars. Mission controllers burst into applause and celebration when they received signals confirming that the vehicle survived the seven-minute descent that NASA said was the most elaborate and difficult feat in the history of robotic space flight.

Engineers said the landing sequence complex, combining a huge parachute with a rocket pack that allowed the vehicle down on the Martian surface supported by a rope, had a margin of error of zero.

“I can not believe this. It’s unbelievable,” said an enthusiastic Allen Chen, deputy head off the vehicle and equipment deaterrizaje at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, near Los Angeles.

Shortly thereafter, Curiosity sent to Earth its first three images of the surface of Mars, one showing a wheel of the vehicle and its shadow over the rocky terrain.

The landing was a success very welcome and an important milestone for the U.S. space agency, hit by budget cuts and the recent cancellation of its space shuttle program, the centerpiece of NASA for 30 years.

The project Curiosity 2 thousand 500 million dollars, formally called the Mars Science Laboratory is the first mission from NASA’s astrobiology research with the Viking spacecraft in 1970.

“It’s a huge advance in planetary exploration. No one has ever done anything like this,” said John Holdren, the chief scientific adviser of U.S. President Barack Obama, who was at the hub of Los Angeles during the event.

Obama himself issued a statement in which he called the Curiosity Mars landing as “an unprecedented technological prowess makes it the source of national pride in the future.”

Launched on November 26 from Cape Canaveral, Florida, navigated robotic space laboratory space for over eight months, through 566 million kilometers, before entering the Martian atmosphere at 20,000 kilometers porhora -17 921 times speed of sound, and begin its descent.
