    Texas adds jobs, New York kills jobs. Florida adds jobs, California kills jobs. North Dakota adds jobs, Chicago kills jobs.
    Acording to last months Dept of Commerce (BLS- E 6) report Red States are adding jobs, Blue States are killing jobs.
    Red states value working citizens, Blue states value welfare citizens.
    All blue state big cities are dying from liberal rot. Shrinking working population and growing welfare population.
    Workers leave as fast as taxes are increased.
    Bankruptacy is when workers leave faster than taxes can be increased.
    Chicago has proposed doubling property taxes to finance public employee pensions.

    Hopefully they'll be full employment jobs.
    The Right side of the Congressional aisle in DC is introducing legislation to amend the ACA requirement that says 29.5 hours is a minimum work week, and thus incentivizes employers to cut workers' hours or face the ACA penalty(s), and change that back to the more traditional 40 hour workweek.
    Predictably, it's expected to NOT be supported by the White House, and to sit idly by in Harry's Senate, as are the other proposals for making the ACA monstrosity a bit more tolerable and workable.
    A person working to pay their own way in life benefits a lot more from a 40 hour workweek at a decent paying job than from government directed mandates and handouts.
    You really do NOT get 'more bang for the buck' with an unemployment check...
    Here's hoping for good luck for the job seekers.

    Are we dying yet from IHOG rot? [wink]

    IHOG, read up on the many articles that say that the states with the highest abortion rates, highest pregnancy rates, lowest rated schools, and the ones who take more away from federal coffers are the "red" states.

    The highest abortion rates are in Blue City innercity HUD slums.
    I never thought high fertility rates were bad. Sounds healthy.
    All of America's worst schools are in Blue City innercity HUD slums.
    Big Cities run by Democrats in Red states have innercity HUD slums.
    Houston is no exception. It's taxpaying population is shrinking and it's welfare population is growing.
    The Houston Metro population is growing while the Houston proper population is shrinking. The suburbs are eating Houston. A business and job at a time.
    Liberal rot is turning Houston into the place in Texas to be from.
    Taking more from the Feds is justice. Red States contribute more and deserve more. Blue states contribute little and deserve nothing.

    Hours worked and pay scale should be a contract between employer and worker.
    If I want a 60 hour a week job that pays $16 and hour it should not be governmen's choice. If I don't want a 30 hour a week job paying $32 an hour it ain't governments business.
    It's time for people to make their own decisions without government interference.

    sverige, when I did an an analysis of the the lowest rated schools I came up with school districts where voters voted for President BO in the last two Presidential election cycles. I know you don't like links but.....
    Some of these school districts are in red states but their voters voted Democratic.
    Locally ask yourself which school districts are the lowest performing in Galveston County and then see who their voters voted for in the last 2 Presidential election cycles.
    sverige, don't be sad, don't be blue, Barack Hussein's a Democrat too!

    JOBS is indeed a 4 letter word in the urban dictionary sense to an Administration who think that the best job for it's subjects is one that depends on government to hand over money.

    Left unexplained is who's hands will be doing the handing over once all real workers have been taxed and hours cut back so much that all are equally poor.
    That's because the power people will still have theirs, having exempted themselves from the harsh effects of redistribution.
    It's good to be the king...
