An Even Deadlier Disaster than Bangladesh Garment Factory Collapse for the Third World / Politics / Unemployment

By: George_Reisman

The recent collapse of a garment factory building in Bangladesh, resulting in the death, at latest count, of more than 1,100 workers who were employed there, has led to international outrage not only against the building’s owner but also against the various retailers in the United States and Europe, many of them prominent, that have sold clothing produced in that building. It is demanded that they assume responsibility for working conditions in the factories that supply them and not deal with factories that do not provide safe and humane conditions and pay fair wages.

The New Untouchables of the 21st Century / Politics / Unemployment

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Throughout history and throughout the world, there have been classes of untouchables. Best known perhaps (other than Elliott Ness and Wall Street bankers) are the caste that goes by the name in South Asia, a.k.a. the Dalits, but there are/were also for instance the Cagots in France, the Burakumin in Japan, and the Roma and Jewish populations in medieval Europe though the Middle East. In the US, one could include the black and native populations. Wikipedia has this definition:

Spain and France Facing Huge Unemployment / Economics / Unemployment

By: Submissions

Brett Chatz writes: No end is in sight regarding the current rise in unemployment in Spain and France.  Neither does there appear to be any economic panacea to reverse the European recession.  As in spread betting and contract for difference, the end product of the austerity program is determined by the accuracy of the European wager on diminishing national deficits rather than on addressing the unemployment problem. CFD trading is making an impact on share trading decisions, just as the economic outlook of the ECB impacts monetary decisions within individual countries.

Figuring Out Cyprus, Will the Real Unemployed Please Raise Your Hands? / Economics / Unemployment

By: John_Mauldin

This week’s letter will be a very short part of a book I am writing with Bill Dunkelberg (the Chief Economist of the National Federation of Independent Businesses) on the future of employment. It has taken longer to write than I initially anticipated, for a host of reasons, chief among which is that the future is not as obvious as I originally thought. Diving into the data has brought a few surprises. It doesn’t help that I have (probably to the frustration of Dunk, although he is way too polite to say it) changed the focus from “merely” what we need to do to create jobs (which is still an important part of the book) to what kinds of jobs will the future bring and who will get them.

Unemployment Down, But February Jobs Report Not All Rosy / Economics / Unemployment

By: Money_Morning

Jeff Uscher writes: The report had some positive news, as the unemployment rate fell to 7.7%, the lowest rate since December 2008.

While the preliminary numbers for February show that 236,000 new jobs were created, exceeding analyst estimates by a wide margin, the figure for January was revised down from 157,000 to 119,000. However, the December number was revised up from 196,000 to 219,000. So for the three months of December 2012-February 2013, the economy has added a total of 574,000 jobs, well above expectations.

Europe, Unemployment and Instability / Economics / Unemployment

By: STRATFOR

The global financial crisis of 2008 has slowly yielded to a global unemployment crisis. This unemployment crisis will, fairly quickly, give way to a political crisis. The crisis involves all three of the major pillars of the global system -- Europe, China and the United States. The level of intensity differs, the political response differs and the relationship to the financial crisis differs. But there is a common element, which is that unemployment is increasingly replacing finance as the central problem of the financial system.

Obama's New Minimum Wage Will Eliminate At Least 467,000 Jobs / Politics / Unemployment

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: In his State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Barack Obama urged Congress to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9, saying the move would reduce poverty and stimulate the economy.

"Tonight, let's declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour," President Obama said. "This single step would raise the incomes of millions of working families. It could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank, rent or eviction, scraping by or finally getting ahead.

State of The Union - Where is U.S. Unemployment Headed? / Politics / Unemployment

By: Ian_R_Campbell

This evening Eastern Time U.S. President Obama is scheduled to give his annual 'State of the Union' address. Favoured topics are said to be U.S. unemployment and jobs creation, and gun control. I expect Mr. Obama also to address the issue of defense spending, where he recently has been reported as saying 'Deep cuts' threat to security, Obama says in reference to pending defense budget cuts.

Employers added 157,000 jobs in January, short estimates of 168,000, which would have kept the unemployment rate stable.

High Unemployment Isn’t Just an American Dilemma / Economics / Unemployment

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: We have nearly eight percent of Americans pounding the pavement, but it is more likely double that if you count the workers actually unemployed or underemployed. But the problem of high unemployment is not only an ongoing issue in America; it’s a problem that is found in pockets all around the world, from the rust belt in Ohio to the massive manufacturing plants in China.

Manipulated U.S. Jobs Report Good for Obama / ElectionOracle / Unemployment

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInitial Reaction and Election Impact

The establishment report of +171,000 jobs was above what most expected. Hurricane Sandy had no effect. The BLS finished gathering stats before the hurricane hit. This report will likely be viewed as favorable for the president.

On the surface, and in detail, this is the best jobs report in quite a while. Jobs gained were full-time jobs for a change. I do not attribute this report to BLS manipulation.

U.S. Unemployment Rate Drop Surprise / Economics / Unemployment

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe unemployment number surprisingly dropped to 7.8% last Friday, and the shoot-from-the-hip crowd came out in force. To say that the jobs report was met with skepticism would be a serious understatement. The response that got the most immediate airplay was ex-GE CEO Jack Welch (who knows a few things about making a number say what you want it to say) tweeting, "Unbelievable job numbers ... these Chicago guys will do anything ... can't debate so change numbers."

Not be left out, Fox Business quoted Ed Butowsky of Chapwood Capital Investment: "'No way in the world these numbers are accurate,' he said. 'Somebody needs to do an investigation.... Investigate these numbers.'"

U.S. Jobs Lies, Damned Lies and the 7.8% Unemployment Rate / Economics / Unemployment

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShadowstats.com Author John Williams wonders if politics are at play behind the latest jobs report, which shows 114,000 new U.S. jobs since September and a 0.3% drop in unemployment since August. Investors need to know how seasonal factors and month-to-month volatility affect the Bureau of Labor Statistics' reports. In this exclusive interview with The Gold Report , Williams explains why he doubts that we are in a recovery. The take-away? Look at the unadjusted figures before you sell your gold.

Another Phony US Employment Report: Spiralling Number of Involuntary Partime Workers / Politics / Unemployment

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

The employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows 114,000 new jobs in September and a drop in the rate of unemployment from 8.1% to 7.8%. As 114,000 new jobs are not sufficient to stay even with population growth, the drop in the unemployment rate is the result of not counting discouraged workers who are defined away as “not in the labor force.”

The Permanent Unemployment Economy / Politics / Unemployment

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe official underreporting of the unemployment statistics is a well-known fact. The cavalier dismissal of the systemic dismantling of the market economy by the Obama administration is undeniable. Notwithstanding, the lack of living wage jobs is not simply a partisan issue. Ever since the adoption of the globalist free trade betrayal, the national suicide of the free enterprise economy has continued. Transiting skilled employees into government dependents is an overt component of the "New Age" of reduced wealth and servitude for the ordinary American.

Why More Money Printing Will Increase Unemployment / Economics / Unemployment

Money Printing Doesn’t Create Jobs
The developed world’s central banks are now foolishly preparing for a full assault on their respective currencies in an attempt to lower unemployment rates. Spurring these central bankers into action is persistently anemic markets and employment data, which they believe can be rectified by creating inflation.
