Employment facts in Obama’s America

Hope and Change (TM)! Looks like in Obama’s America the two largest employers are, well from the article:

Behind Wal-Mart, the second-largest employer in America is Kelly Services, a temporary work provider.

Friday’s disappointing jobs report showed that part-time jobs are at an all-time high, with 28 million Americans now working part-time. The report also showed another disturbing fact: There are now a record number of Americans with temporary jobs.

Approximately 2.7 million, in fact. And the trend has been growing.

In the first quarter of 2013, U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 2.86 million temporary and contract workers, according to the American Staffing Association. This represents a 2.9 percent growth from the same period in 2012. For just the month of June, there was a 6.7 percent growth in the number of staffing jobs than last year.

As I already pointed out in this post: Our unemployment numbers are much worse than they tell us. Much, much worse. How pissed should the liberals be that after 5 years of Obamanomics and all the stimulus spending by the Kenesian idiots that the two bigges US employers are Wal-Mart and some fucking temp agency? Obamacare, which is a dream for the Oh so competent IRS, is causing a lot of this pain, but do we hear anyone in the LSM pointing this out? Must gall the LSM that too many people see through them, though.

Big fucking fail all around. I am sure they will find a way to blame Booosh.

    I was reading some more and everyone now acknowledges that the employer mandate is behind a lot of this. Ezra Klein wrote about it. Matt Yglesias wrote about it. Congress knows it and the President clearly knows it, based on delaying the mandate.

    The problem is that no one will do anything about it. Obama and the Democrats don’t want to rescind the employer mandate because it would be acknowledging problems with Obamacare. And the Republican don’t want to repeal it without repealing the entire law. So, nothing will be done.

    I disagree Hal. They know what’s causing the damage but ideology, elitist inability to accept they are idiots and believe in dumb shit, and hubris will make them do exactly the worst thing possible, and in the end they will still keep this job killing monster moving forward. Oh sure, they might pass more regulation, to address the problem, of course, but what they will pass will cause more damage. It will be something idiotic like another mandate that forces employers to get full time employers, regardless of cost, and when companies start failing they will pretend it was not their fault yet again.

    The issue here is that this idea of free or cheap healthcare for all sounds great, but implementing it is impossible. That’s because in the real world nothing is free or cheap and worth shit. The left believes people should go into business to generate employment slots and money for government. People that do so for profit are evil. That’s the root of all our problems. They want altruism from everyone else. Stress that else part.
