Just who is going to hire the 9.1% of the unemployed poorly-educated labor force plus the six million of similarly poorly educated people who have given up looking for work & are living with their parents or children or are homeless by now - because there are no jobs to be found? Half of the 54,000 jobs created in May were created by McDonalds - the hamburger flipper. Meanwhile China & the rest of Asia progresses on creating wealth.
These results will change shortly before November 2012 after BO puts in programs he hates but are necessary for him to get re-elected. Thereafter he will trick people totally extinguishing all of our liberties by returning to his program of promoting the above type of results since his goal is to make every citizen a government dependent with absolutely no rights whatsoever other than mindlessly collecting whatever chicken is thrown on front porches once a month.
Mike Antonucci, of the Education Intelligence Agency (EIA), provides insight for the information (explains the paradox) shown on the graph when he writes - "The latest Census Bureau report provides details of the 2008-09 school year as the nation was in the midst of the recession. That year, 48,238,962 students were enrolled in the U.S. K-12 public education system. That was a decline of 157,114 students from the previous year. They were taught by 3,231,487 teachers (full time equivalent). That was an increase of 81,426 teachers from the previous year. This is not new information. We knew last October that the entire public education workforce - teachers, principals, administrators, & support workers - grew by more than 137,000 employees during the recession. What the Census Bureau numbers add to that information is that we almost replaced every lost student with a new employee. Twenty seven states had fewer students in 2009 than in 2008, but 16 of them hired more teachers...It's an odd enterprise that reacts to fewer clients by hiring more employees."
