May the gods bless our beloved warlord ruler!
haha, Of course always on the up and up. Well for the 3 to 5 people that still believe we are in a recovery. Get a grip and take a look
Party on bitchez
What's U-6 at?
Up to 15.9%. Healthy...
Interesting to see the SGS figure later
Yeah, sorry was looking at the Seasonally Adjusted column at 15.9%
Non Seasonally adjusted is 15.5%
Precisely what my first thought was, terry.
It (seasonally adjusted) is at 15.9%, or 0.2% up from 15.7%.
Party on bitchez...
Strip out the new McDonalds jobs and what do we have?
Thanks. That was my first thought as well. Manufacturing right? What a joke.
I figured McDs for more assembly type work than MFG.
McD's is an industrial process, so you're really manufacturing burgers. It's actually a leap to say that you are cooking or preparing food, if you really think about it.
Industrial Life : not iLife but I-life ... lets put the emphasis where it's most appropriate.
Right on, right on. McD's hired 50k this past month or at least that was the PR.
Want fries with that shake?
Actually, McD set out to hire 50k......they actually hired 62k.
244,000-175,000 (birth Death adjustment)-62,000 (McDonalds hires)=7,000
no, not lol but ROFL + SUSFU
nice pick up mosley, looks like TD liked it so much he gave it its own post.
not too sure what happened here, ill blame IT. comment definately wasnt worth repeating 4 or 5 times!
Of course it was :)
Thank the McGawds. A new growth industry has arrived to replace all those crappy Hi-tech industry jobs sent overseas. Now once we adjust to living in dirt floor shacks and walking bare foot, all will be well in Hooverville. Bonus effect: We can scrounge through the company dumpster for uneaten fries.
Buy the oversized bowls of Dipping sauce bitchez.
They hadn't expected 12,000 physicists applying. They decided to hire and keep them busy doing distributed research on nuclear fusion during slack times on the midnight shifts.
if they want to sell this jobs # then even less reason for more QE
LOL 62k from macdonalds - what an economic boom - we need more macdonalds
Household report showed -190k?
What a shocker, the economy isn't improving (!)
read goldman's piece yesterday to show the effects of mcdonalds not mattering and also the fact that increased participation rate will require 290k+ jobs/mo just to keep the headline unemployment steady. suckers.
Will Silver & gold rally much on these better NFP numbers?
At least I hope this is the bottom.
they are rally now!!!!
they are rallying now!!!!
And they revised last weeks number...up of course, Will this weeks be revised over 250 next week I wonder.
sorry, little bit out of context, but such a great song -
'The Revolution Will Not Be Online'
Thanks to McDonalds for helping the numbers. Gotta count them burger flippers. Can I take out my mortgage now?
Rally on bitchez.
Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 244,000 in April, and the private sector added 268,000 jobs.
No need to read past that. Total, complete, 100%, Grade-A, unfiltered bullshit.
Birth/Death Model = +175,000 ?!?!?!?!?
Couldn't they just combine the QE3 full steam ahead announcement at the same time?
birth/death was 175k?
I am confused. How can the birth/death effect add employement in specific sectors?
Need more data.
Because they said so.
The broader U-6 unemployment rate rose to 15.9 percent from 15.7 percent
Bizarro! Unemployment RISES on best job growth in years!
Pinch me! Is this real?
The party line is that unemployment % counts the number of unemployed people ACTIVELY looking for a job. As economy recovers, more people "smell blood" and start looking for payrolls, hence increase in unemployment. But that's the theory.
birth certificates, bitchez
i'm gonna go to BLS and look at the trailing 12 months of birth death adjustments to see what they have been and if this is a huge outlier
McD'z hiring the peeps out there is what got us where we are today. Heckuva job Ronald...
