Unemployment down slightly in April

The unemployment rate fell slightly to 8.1 percent, but there were signs of the recovery stalling with more Americans dropping out of the workforce...
The drop in unemployment from 8.2 percent is not much of a victory for President Barack Obama, even though it’s the best jobless rate since his inauguration at the start of 2009. That’s because the decline is largely explained by people giving up on their job hunts and the participation rate dipping to 63.6 percent last month — its lowest point since December 1981...
Speaking at a high school in Arlington, Va., Obama called the report “good news,” ..

It shows it down because more people drooped of unemployment and have no benefits left. Not because they went back to work. Most people that lost jobs a year or more ago, those jobs are gone, not to ever return.

The job I was laid off from has never been replaced/re-filled, and if anything, the company I used to work for has fewer employees now than ever.

Companies are forcing those who remain to work harder for less, be more productive for the same or less pay, and just deal with it.

If you want a job right now, you suck it up, and do your work. That's reality.

Obama will go down in history as the President who presided over the longest period of low employment in US History.

#1 poorest economy has been under Obama's rule and policies.

Says volumes that education does not equal wisdom and experience.
