6. Well it's good there is some improvement

but the jobs that are being added are minimum wage service industry jobs. You can't send cleaning your toilet to India to outsource.

And something interesting I've noticed: "The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 4.8 million in November. These individuals accounted for 40.1 percent of
the unemployed.
(See table A-12.)

40 percent of the unemployed are long term unemployed. Interesting. So, people who did not get a job right away after losing their jobs to the RepubliCON Great Depression, pretty well have NO chance of ever getting a job again. I wonder if these people were the vast majority of Mitt's 47%?
