 What ! no new jobs created from the Bitcoin bubble ?  upside is that unlike the housing, shale oil, .com, tulips etc bubbles bursting,  when BTC crashes there won't be a corresponding number of layoffs.

Why hire part time seasonal workers when the stats show a surge in online buying..Reports coming out left and right it’s so large now UPS can’t guarantee Christmas deliveries...Let’s break it down by full and part time jobs..40,000 manufacturing jobs last month is worth 100,000 bullshit jobs ...

U.S. employers hired more people in November than last year, but fewer than in October of this year, according to the LinkedIn Workforce Report.

Hiring across the U.S. was 26 percent higher last month than a year earlier, the data showed. The seasonally adjusted hiring figure was 2.2 percent lower than in October. Still, hiring has stayed consistently strong this year, LinkedIn says.

Year to date, U.S. hiring has been 10.4 percent higher in 2017 than in 2016.

The sectors with the biggest year-over-year increases were oil and energy, up 30 percent, manufacturing and industrial, 15.7percent higher, and aerospace, automotive and transportation, which is up 13.7 percent. The industries with the least growth in 2017 were media and communications, health care and pharmaceuticals and telecommunications.

"LinkedIn says"?  You're joking right?I would believe that as much as I believe "views" on Facebook. Bottom line?  Oil at $50 tells you that real economy is a zombie. best.  Trump's job narrative is fake news.  Funny how he claimed Obama's job numbers were fake but his are as good as gold.  Only thing worse that an obvious liar are people too stupid to see it.

None of this data means anything to the stawk "market", it is dissconected and has been. Stawks can only go up. Looks like the same for bitcoin.Still do not understand why bitcoin miners use a dollar value. It is anti fiat, anti dollar so why say, I have a million dollars of bitcoin.

I just became one of those.  Reduction in force on Dec 1.  Worked for a billion dollar corp in the HomeCare and residential (Medicaid/Medicare) sector.  I am 50 and was surounded by 30-40 yr olds making $20k less.  They have little experience. are new hires and all are women.  They make mistakes but get the job done on a sub par basis.  That goes a long way in freeing up expenses.  Get rid of older and hire younger women.  I am in Finance and when I started it was 80/20 men to women in corp finance.  Now its 20/80.  For the past 4 years I've had all female co-workers.  Have had to get in tough with my feminine side just to get through the day and not get replaced sooner.

Life expectancy is going UP, but employment expectancy (ie number of years that you will be continuously employed at NET income levels high enough to enjoy stability, enjoy life. & retirement security) is going DOWN.In this era, you MUST start/own your own business(s) to prosper, employment/wage lifestyle will leave you obsolete, unemployable and destitute by your 40's-50's. SO SO SO SO grateful to myself that very early in life I made a jihad to focus on earning $$$, retired at age 45 financially independent in total control of my retirement income.
