Obama Illinois high unemployment reveals Labor Force Participation rate impact on unemployment rate, IL jumps to 9 percent with labor force reentrants

“With a 63.7% labor force participation, “conditions in the labor market are considerably worse than indicated” in July’s report”…economist Joshua Shapiro, WSJ August 3, 2012

“As today’s labor release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows, Illinois’ unemployment rate jumped to 9 percent, a 0.4 percent increase over December’s 8.6 percent rate. Even before the increase in January, Illinois had the 9th highest unemployment rate in the nation.

The increase is due to almost 23,000 Illinoisans rejoining the workforce to look for work again. Unfortunately, Illinois’s worsening economic climate means there is very little work to find.”…Illinois Review Mar 2013

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

We have continued to reveal the real unemployment rate in the US as being much higher due to the shrinking labor force participation rate, i.e., the large numbers of people who have dropped out of the labor force. In Obama’s home state of Illinois we have a good example of how this works when some of those people attempt to reenter the job market.

From Illinois Review March 10, 2013.
“ILLINOIS’ UNEMPLOYMENT RATE JUMPED TO 9 PERCENT”

“As today’s labor release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows, Illinois’ unemployment rate jumped to 9 percent, a 0.4 percent increase over December’s 8.6 percent rate. Even before the increase in January, Illinois had the 9th highest unemployment rate in the nation.

The increase is due to almost 23,000 Illinoisans rejoining the workforce to look for work again. Unfortunately, Illinois’s worsening economic climate means there is very little work to find.

The state’s unemployment rate is now nearly the same as it was one full year ago, when the unemployment rate stood at 9.1 percent. “

The US Labor Force Participation Rate when Obama took the White House in January of 2009 was 65.7 percent. Since then it has dropped 2.2 percent to 63.5 percent. That 2.2 percent is not reflected in the stated unemployment rate.

Also in January of 2009 there were 5.7 million people who want a job now. Last month there were 6.8 million who want a job now.

  1. Traitor!

    Obama Lets China Steal Top Secret NASA Technology

    At 2 a.m, on June 17, 1972, five men dressed in business suits and wearing surgical gloves were in the process of bugging the Democratic headquarters at the Watergate office complex. Caught in the act, they were later identified as Nixon’s “Plumbers,” part of a nationwide operation to ensure Nixon’s reelection that included wiretapping, burglary, private investigators, and mafia-like shakedowns.

    Nixon put a halt to the Watergate investigation, giving marching orders to the Plumbers to keep quiet and told his cronies in the CIA and Department of Justice to stall the FBI investigation.

    Last month, we found out that two NASA facilities—Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, and Ames Research Center near San Francisco, California-were gorged with Chinese national engineers, who had access to top secret defense technology, who then took this information back to their handlers in communist China.

    Congressman Frank R. Wolf, through information gathered from whistleblowers, not only found that secret defense information was stolen, but that the Obama administration, including DOJ, may have shut down the investigation.

    According to a whistleblower speaking to Aviation Week, the Chinese nationals obtained high-level, cutting edge technology, including:

    … Missile defense technology…High-performance rocket engines, fuel and oxidizer tanks from an “ASAT” (anti-satellite weapon), guidance and terrain-mapping systems from the Tomahawk cruise missile and a radar altimeter from the F-35…

    Upon allegations that defense secrets at the Ames facility were breached, an FBI investigation was launched and completed, the information then being turned over to Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Fry. Fry began to prepare indictments and convened a secret grand jury. However, literally minutes before Fry was to begin the proceedings, and without explanation, he was replaced by Assistant U.S. Attorney Elise Becker, and the investigation suddenly stalled.

    According to Congressman Wolf, Department of Justice and White House officials intervened in the investigation to shut it down.

    Congressman Wolf and other members of Congress put together a confidential report, Destruction of NASA from the Inside: A Summary Report of Criminal and Political Activity, delivered to the Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, which states that NASA has been hemorrhaging top secret technology not only China, but Saudi Arabia as well.

    Eric Holder has of course denied that they quashed the investigation, but Congressman Wolf’s probe puts the DOJ right in the middle of what could be the biggest loss of U.S. technology since the Rosenbergs funneled information about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union.

    Nixon shut down the Watergate investigation to ensure his reelection. The Obama administration is alleged to have shut down the NASA investigation to ensure that the funneling of top secret defense technology to communist China continues.

    Impeachment for “high crimes and misdemeanors” would be only the beginning…

  2. bob,

    Thanks very much. Just visited Wolf’s site because of a link from my local Tea Party.

  3. Bob Strauss…………..
    Just exactly what SLICK WILLY done! The only differrence is that Slick Willy gave the Chinese CLassified missile guidance technology via Charlie Treigh. No difference in either ……….BOTH are TRAITORS. Had these events occurred in WW2 the perpetrators would now be in PRISON.

  4. Of late the sickening stench which surrounds the WH,has intensified. You can say that the stench is not what we think, or it is really perfume. Most folks know UP from DOWN,and also know exactly what is generating the horrible stench. The lies and the combined filth which is associated with many of the WH staff and Soetoro appointees has generated an uncontrollable,and very noticeable aura about our once proud structure. One doesn’t need the IQ of Einstein to figure out what is happening. The two top perpetrators sneer and laugh at anybody who asks any questions. Very soon there will be complete reversals of the insane sneers on the faces of Soetoro,and his next in command. They both will have panicked expressions of complete FEAR upon their faces as the truth sets in .
    I now believe that it is time to ask exactly why both Barrack and Michelle were administered HIV tests. That is NOT something that is done for UTILITY purposes,NOR IS IT DONE to encourage others to do it. It is done to determine if the person being tested is HIV POSITIVE. While I am guessing, I am also BETTING that the alleged CINC is HIV POSITIVE………which the American people have every right to know. To the best of my knowledge no other US potus has submitted to such testing . Perhaps it is time for Soetoro to COME CLEAN.

  5. Another outrage.
