Record Number Of US Job Openings

|| By FITSNEWS || Want another snapshot of America’s “dependency economy?” You know … the one in which government continues to perpetually subsidize joblessness?  With predictable results?

Of course you don’t … you’d rather read that “everything is awesome.”

Unfortunately, it’s not.

job openings

What’s that?

It’s a chart showing the number of job openings in America at the moment (according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics).  In July the total stood at 5.75 million – the highest number in nearly a decade-and-a-half.  That’s a lot of job openings … especially when you consider 94 million working age Americans are not participating in the labor force.

What gives?

It’s easy: When government enables huge swaths of its population to subsist in perpetuity on the backs of others (well, and on the back of soaring government debt) … they do just that.

Not. Rocket. Science.

Maybe they don’t have the specific skills or training required. Wages should start rising.

The whole “wages are sticky” thing is a problem…the question is whether the boom will last long enough to overcome the whole sticky wages thing or not.

the Obama Way Rocky Verdad • an hour ago

To destroy capitalism and “American exceptionalism” you overwhelm the system with spending, entitlements, regulations and debt. The economy comes to halt, full-time jobs are killed, businesses fail in record numbers, the middle class is financially murdered, the debt implodes and the economy is overwhelmed.

Capitalism dies as a majority of Americans wind up hooked on welfare, food stamps, free healthcare and government checks like a drug addict is hooked on heroin, crack cocaine, or crystal meth. Obama is America’s drug dealer. But his drug of choice is government dependency.

Explains it.

Only a right wing propagandist or Fox News could come up with a way to see this information as negative. What the right hates about this chart is from the day Obama took office the number of available jobs has been going up. Not only has the economy replaced all of the jobs lost under Bush, but the number of available jobs is now higher than at any time under the Bush Administration. The GOP can no longer claim the recovery is not real; so they have to find something negative to say about having a lot of available jobs.

After all how can you claim you need tax cuts for job creators if we already have a lot of jobs?

Lyndon Johnson established the grand society. Our nation paid women to have kids out of wedlock and paid men not to work. Look what happened. People adopted that lifestyle. Today we have 93,000,000 adults that do not work. They are not starving to death either.
That is the system our nation has created. We can’t afford to pay 93,000,000 people not to work.

TroubleBaby September 9, 2015 at 4:05 pm

There is a boom going on right now….due to sustained low interest rates.

Austrian Business Cycle theory suggests there will be a bust when there’s monetary base contraction…which came close to happening last month…but then didn’t. It’s slowly going up again- but no one knows if it’s enough to support the capital structure the previous larger money base growth created.

The Fed really is trapped, they now have to keep the money expansion going to prevent a bust and try to stop interest rates from rising so the debt is manageable.

They want to do a .25% increase(which is close to meaningless statistically, but psychologically could be devastating) now that unemployment ticked lower but they have Krugman and other Keynesians screaming bloody murder over it…

This is all not going to end well. There will come a time, and I don’t know when, but it will come, when there will be a reckoning for this incredible debt and distortion created by the manipulation of interest rates via supply/demand/monetary policy.
