Comments on: Jobs come back, along with unemployment http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/05/07/jobs-come-back-along-with-unemployment/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: jscott418 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2010/05/07/jobs-come-back-along-with-unemployment/comment-page-1/#comment-14629 Sun, 09 May 2010 14:18:03 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=3741#comment-14629 High corporate profits do not mean jobs are on the horizon. It just means that companies have finally jettison enough people and sales have gone up a little which means they can do without repeating those mistakes of the past. The real problems are with the rest of the world and its not looking good. We do not have enough domestic product manufacturing and that accounts for retail sales rebounding yet jobs not rebounding. Too much made in other places. Too much debt with States and local governments will just create another wave of underemployed and unemployed too.

They are not creating manufacturing. They are giving false hopes of job creation.

Unless we stop importing from countries with wages below US legal wages, jobs will not come back. All sectors depend on manufacturing jobs. GDP depends on manufacturing and export.

Both govts have not encouraged manufacturing.

Vote them out and protest against them.

We?

I suspect the common man has no idea of all the work you’re doing on his behalf.

Conspiracy theories about supposed fears of tax hikes or of healthy deficit spending during a recession are nothing but the ideological hobbyhorses of pseudo-intellectuals.

It couldn’t possibly be Washington, now, could it? With tax hikes on the horizon to cover all that debt? A cap ‘n’ trade bill that is virtually guaranteed to kill jobs? All touted by a once-charismatic president who, to the best of my knowledge, never sold a widget or met a payroll or spent a day in the private sector in his entire life. But the MSM loves the guy so it couldn’t possibly be that? Cold comfort to the voters looking at lifetime on the dole.

Still, I don’t think there’s any basis for looking for interest rate increases before the unemployment rate is actually falling (unless inflation somehow picks up without that).

Were all the out of work people down there now floating boom for BP counted in these figures? If so it’s an awful way to have an uptick in jobs.

Pretty soon, hundreds of thousands of temporary 2010 US Census employees will be on the market again.

The 2000 US Census employed over 800,000 people.
