Unemployment numbers rose by 10 thousand last week. Wonder how Trump will blame Obama for this.

I thought unemployment rates were only released the first Friday of each month for the previous month.

Here is a link: Lowest unemployment in a decade.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/07/new...ch-jobs-report/

Assuming 180 million workers and 4.5% unemployment, there are over 8 million unemployed at all times.

10 thousand? Blame? Really?

Patience Junjun. The economy goes up and down. Pretty much guaranteed it will actually turn south at some point during this amazing Trump Dynasty. No need to cry sky is falling every time a leaf blows across the lawn.

I can answer this one.

Politicians are notorious for redefining how people are counted when unemployment numbers are calculated. The numbers are often manipulated to show lower unemployment which in turn reflects more favorably on whoever is in office.

Obama was particularly good at reclassifying those that were unemployed as "out of the job market". They were were no longer unemployed. Instead, they simply were out of the job market.

An example: If you have 10 people in a room and 5 of them have jobs and 5 of them are unemployed pot heads, you have 50% employment. If, however, you can say that 4 of the unemployed have been out of work for more than 12 weeks and therefore are no longer in the job market, you now have 5 out of 6 working or 83% employment. Voilà. Your administration has reduced unemployment from 50% to 17%. Clearly you are the jobs guy.

A further advantage to this strategy is that if your predecessor chooses to be more realistic in his/her calculations, it will have the appearance of unemployment going from 17% to 50% on THEIR term!

If you don't choose to consider these thoughts just remember this:

"There are lies, dammed lies and statistic." When the US government throws out a statistic, such as unemployment numbers, you really need to take a step back and consider the politics. You are looking at a statistic and that is something less valuable than a damned lie.

"Well, Nothing bad can happen now."

This would assume that the corrupt Obama administration didn't manipulate the statistics in the first place.

I think we can all agree Obama was a lying bastard.

Unlike trump, Obama had proof to back his blaming Bush for certain things.

RM your data came from Dec 2016, I'm talking about April 2017. Since y'all could find it I'll give you a hint look up bureau of labor. Says payroll gains for this month lowest since Sept 2010.

Ummm... This is April.

As Mr Smith correctly points out they release data monthly for the previous month. Last month had a gain of 38,000 Not great numbers, but gowth is still growth.

https://www.bls.gov/schedule/news_release/empsit.htm

More importantly, i also haven't heard Trump blame anyone for those small growth numbers.
