431,000 Jobs Added in May But 411,000 Were Temporary Government Workers

In a country where it takes 200,000 new jobs a month just to break-even as young people enter the workforce and newly arrived legal immigrants seek employment, only adding an estimated 20,000 private sector jobs is a massive net loss in employment.

Adding 411,000 temporary government workers for the 2010 Census does not make a recovery. Not only do you and I have to pay them rather than keeping that money and spending it how we want to spend it…they will only lower the unemployment rate for a couple months at best.

And to make it even worse than that, each Census worker is only “hired” for one week. At the end of their week, the Census Bureau decides if they should “re-hire” them for another week, and of course the government counts that as a “new” job. So if the same census worker gets hired four weeks in a row in May, the government will count that as four new jobs created for the month of May.

That’s how our government ‘do math’. But it sure ‘do’ make the unemployment rate look better, don’t it?

Still trust those optimistic government numbers about the economy?
