Hidden Story Behind Unemployment Rates

On Friday, May 2, the White House was happy to announce the lowest US unemployment rate since September 2008. As reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, with 288,000 nonfarm jobs added to the economy, the unemployment rate dropped from 6.7% to 6.3% in April 2014.

The Unemployment Rate: Obama's Inadvertent "Mission Accomplished" Moment

This morning the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), an office within the Department of Labor, announced the unemployment rate for November 2013. As currently calculated, the unemployment rate has indeed fallen to 7.0 percent. The problem is that since the national economy has deteriorated to such a severe degree over the past half-decade the BLS calculations have become a wildly inaccurate way to gauge the health of the broader economy.

The Down and Dirty of June's Jobs Report

At first glance June's jobs report from the Department of Labor sounds pretty good: the economy added 195,000 jobs in the month and the unemployment rate stayed steady at 7.6-percent. See, that doesn't sound so bad, and the White House was quick to tell the country how fantastic those 195,000 jobs are, but the real story isn't so rosy.

Office Hours with Dr. Brough: “Is Obama’s Recovery Working?”

We get a lot of e-mails at FreedomWorks from people who want to know which economic policies we endorse and why we endorse them. This is a good thing. Economics is a specialty, and it does the republic no good when people pretend to understand economics but aren’t available to discuss their ideas. (This is only a slight jab at Paul Krugman’s debate jitters).

Unemployment in the United States (UnCensored)

The unemployment report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) today showed a .3 percent decrease in unemployment from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent for September.This will no doubt be a cause for celebration among supporters of the president's agenda. However, those who are really monitoring the vitality of the US economy won't be so quick to jump for joy.

Government Regulation Slowing Energy Jobs and Economic Growth

With unemployment in the United States at 8.3%, job growth is something which should be encouraged. However, it would seem that the government is only interested in jobs that support their agenda.

Obama "Recovery": unemployment rate "falls" -- because work force shrinks

Before President Obama and Washington rejoice over the newly announced decrease in the unemployment rate they need to face a harsh reality: America is still not gaining jobs. In fact, the main reason unemployment “fell” is because the workforce has shrunk.
