Why The Jobs Report Is Worse Than You Think, In 2 Charts

Why The Jobs Report Is Worse Than You Think, In 2 Charts

“A worthless index based on subjective data. We should call it the "news cycle anxiety-maintaining index" because that's all it's good for.

We all need to get off the computer for a while. Really”

“Oh, knock it off. Jobs are out there. Maybe not your entitled, wish-fulfilling career positions, but if you need to work, you can.

And quit whining about how bad it is. Your chart compares current employment to those levels found during the housing boom--which was an unnatural aberration. It was a boom market that created boom employment and we're not likely to see that again unless we get to use our homes as credit cards like we did in 2007.

The only good thing about the shutdown is that there IS NO jobs report. This really only affects the 24 hour news cycle pundits and hacks. No report means HP and other news outlets can't create their usual breathless monthly anxiety, numbing and pointless analyses and speculation up until the day of the reports release.

That's really got to be tough for you guys.”

“Nope, can't spin your way out of this one, con boy. This is another Texas loud-mouthed bully that needs to be called out, and it looks like a group of Americans who were on site and without agendas such as yours, did just that.

“More wishful tech-epochalism. There must be an "ap" to solve everything. Whales move, do the spotters with their "spotty" phone coverage move with them?

I'm no Luddite but jeez, people, cell phones are a tool, a limited and finite tool, they will not save the world and the sooner we stop defaulting towards this kind of tech solutionism the better.

How about a sonar program along whale routes? Wow, that would work and be on the job 24/7. Oh, sorry it's not as cool as an i-phone so I guess it won't work.”

“Get back on the meds. Smart phones simply represent a level of personal digital inter-connectivity that we have not had before. There an endless number of ways to exploit that network, and this is just one. No one is claiming that is the only tool, but it is already installed, so rolling out a new app represents a very cheap approach to creating some benefit.”

“You see? Now this is why I've recently become in favor of municipal slapping. One good, open-palmed, slap would provide a significant disincentive for this woman.

For the public good, take conscientious, civic-minded slapping off the assault list and watch our lunatic social fringe fade into oblivion.

“When this thing first came out I roundly ridiculed the seeming indecision of the thing. Laptop? Tablet? It was not an advance and not even a credible lateral move for marketing sake.

No sooner did I make the comment than I was lambasted by techies who immediately buy into that which is shiny and new--regardless of functional utility.

The whole episode speaks to the larger issue of our blind willingness to accept anything--regardless of merit--from the consumer electronics industry that gives us a sense of belonging simply through its newness. And therein lays the problem: it's never been about real "innovation," it's always just been about "new."”
