2. That works out to 27 straight months of private sector job growth

I wonder where we be at if the republicans had been non stop obstructionists and
had laid off so many public sector workers?

6. no, it's just not very accurate compared to the BLS jobs number

it can only deal with companies with a direct relationship with ADP.

then again, not like the BLS really gives us the most accurate picture either.


We need a *minimum* of about 150,000 new jobs per month just to maintain equilibrium (although the Labor Force Participation Rate has been dropping steadily) but we need *much* more than 150k jobs per month to start putting this country back into recovery mode.

5. I got laid off at the beginning of the month.

 

I got laid off at the beginning of the month, after 5 years with the company. Fortunately I was able to land another one, in my same town (that's a first for me). I start at the beginning of June. Unfortunately I'll be making $12K less a year, but at least I have a job.

I'm trying to work with Wells Fargo to renegotiate my mortgage. Our house is worth $90K less than we owe on it. And while we can afford the current mortgage, it leaves us with no working room in our budget now.
