Long-Term Unemployment Is Falling, but Still Work to Do

 

The recent labor market data have been encouraging. Businesses have now added nearly 10 million jobs over 53 straight months of job growth, the longest streak on record. Total job gains have exceeded 200,000 in each of the last six months, the first time that has happened since 1997. And the unemployment rate has fallen rapidly since mid-2013 to reach 6.2 percent in July, 1.1 percentage point less than a year ago.

 

Of particular note, much of the decline in the unemployment rate has come as a result of declines in long-term unemployment. In fact, falling long-term unemployment accounts for more than 60 percent of the drop in the overall unemployment rate in the last 12 months. This is a disproportionately large share given that one-third of the jobless are long-term unemployed.

 

The long-term unemployment rate has been cut by more than half from a peak of 4.4 percent in April 2010 — the highest ever recorded — to 2.0 percent in July 2014. Of that 2.4 percentage point decline, 0.7 percentage point has happened since last July, an even larger decline than seen with the short-term unemployment rate. Nevertheless, because the long-term unemployment rate more than quadrupled as a result of the recession, the declines seen recently are still not yet sufficient to return long-term unemployment to pre-recession levels

“We now don’t count who’s dead,” she declared, saying it was “good” that thousands had died. “If you’re dead, you deserve to be dead. You started it.”

 

In her opinion, Hamas, which governs the Gaza strip, was “re-elected by a lot of stupid people who don’t even own a pencil.” Rivers then exploded when the cameraman asked her about the high mortality rate in the current conflict. “Go back to the atomic bomb and what we did in Japan. You don’t start wars and then decide ‘I’m sorry.’”

 

“They were told to get out, and if [you] don’t get out, you’re an idiot. At least the ones who were killed were the ones with low IQs.”

 

In a statement later provided to TMZ, Rivers claimed she was “totally taken out of context.

 

“What I said and stand behind is, war is hell and unfortunately civilians are victims of political conflicts. We, the United States, certainly know this as 69 years later we still feel the guilt of Hiroshima and Nagasaki….Along with every other sane person in this world, I am praying for peace.”

How to argue with right-wing relatives: Labor Day BBQ edition!

No one enjoys a political debate while eating hot dogs. But here’s how to prep for your Tea Party uncle’s madness.

 

By JIM NEWELL & Salon.com

 

GOP_paper_plate

Labor Day, the most bittersweet of holidays. Gives you a three-day weekend, sure, and that’s great — no one’s turning that down. But then you realize, oh, crap, this will be the last three-day weekend for months and also summer is over, and with it, fun and a general sense of relaxation. And warmth. It’s going to be winter soon and you’ll be depressed and fat and working all the time. Oh well, worry about that later. Labor Day!

 

What does one do on Labor Day, a day in which Americans traditionally honor the herculean efforts and cracking discipline of business owners and bosses over the years? You get up, pray to your boss for the noblesse oblige of bestowing upon you some lousy piece of underemployment, and then do the same damn thing you always do on summer holidays: go to a barbecue with your weird, politically diverse extended family.

 

Again: The best thing to do in a politically diverse family is to never talk about politics. Talking about politics is not fun. Who enjoys it? Nobody. Much better to stick to chatter over summer blockbuster motion pictures or the Major League Baseball standings or Internet memes. But somehow, in these hypercharged Modern Times, almost anything can funnel into a political bitchfest. If you’re talking about summer movies, and you’re mentioning how you liked, say, “Captain America 2,” someone in the family might say, “Speaking of America …” You’re off to the races, there’s no turning back. Your beloved Tea Party uncle would like to list some grievances.

 

GGGGGGGOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLFFFFFFFFF!!!!!

 

Your Tea Party uncle here is referring to the well-reported and analyzed fact that President Obama enjoys playing golf. Some would say it’s his favorite hobby and means of getting away from the grind for a few hours. Your uncle, however, believes that President Obama literally lives on the seventh hole of a golf course on Martha’s Vineyard — not just in a house lining the fairway of the hole, but in a big tent, set up on the green. Can you believe that Obummer has stopped being president and now lives in a big tent on the seventh hole of a golf course? This is what the chain email from World Net Daily said, right under the ads for cheap dietary penis supplements and gold bullion and crank-wheel manual flashlights for the post-EMP apocalyptic hellscape.

From Ms. LYNN SWEET:

 

President Barack Hussein Obama set to take action on immigration by end of September

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is poised to take action on immigration by the end of September, with the White House working on details relating to significant policy changes in the wake of Congress failing to act, sources told me.

 

Sources who have been in meetings at the White House said the decision for Obama to act has been made, legal reviews have been conducted, and “right now it is a question of timing, scale, how to pay for it and how to make it work.”

 

On Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Obama was on track to keep his self-imposed deadline of making a decision on immigration by the end of summer — which is  Sept. 21 — and did more than hint there were changes in the pipeline that would come before the November elections.

 

Asked for an update on where Obama is about deciding on immigration at the Monday briefing, Earnest said, “As you know, we said at the end of the summer, and while the president has returned from Martha’s Vineyard and it is a beautiful, 80-degree day here in Washington, it actually still is technically the summer, so we’re not at the end of it yet. But when we get there we’ll probably have some news to make on immigration.”

 

The administration has not finalized whether the changes will come via executive orders or through priority changes within the Department of Homeland Security.

 

House Republicans have voted to sue Obama over his use of executive actions. 

 

That’s been met by the president and the White House with a shrug, and Obama is set to sign more orders because the GOP-led House declines votes on Obama agenda items.

 

Players — from labor unions to the varied interests of corporate America — are pressing the White House for specific provisions, such as visa quotas for high-tech workers as well as an easing of deportations of people with no criminal record. 

 

With Obama expected to act in a few weeks, Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., a national leader on immigration — who has been a critic of the rising number of deportations on Obama’s watch — said Monday that a lot of organizing work needs to be done to help eligible illegal immigrants sign up for expected programs to let them stay in the U.S. legally.

 

“We want to get as many as we can out of the vicious cycle of deportation,” Gutierrez told Jose Diaz-Balart on his MSNBC show. “. . .  We’re getting ready.”

 

“We are preparing,” said Billy Lawless, a member of the executive committee of the Illinois Restaurant Association and on the steering committee of the Illinois Business Immigration Coalition, who was at a White House meeting on immigration earlier this month. “The indication I got,” he said, “is that they are going to go big on this.”

 

Chicago and Illinois political leaders are very pro-immigration reform.

 

The Illinois Business Immigration Coalition has united Republican and Democratic executives to support immigration reform — an alliance that does not exist in other states. Gov. Pat Quinn, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., also have offered to help in the wake of the surge of “border children”  who came to the U.S. illegally through Mexico from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, unlike some officials from other states who spurned administration efforts to house unaccompanied alien children.

 

On Thursday, the coalition is bringing together political, civic, community and religious leaders at the Ann and Robert Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, 225 E. Chicago, to call “for immediate administrative relief for millions of hardworking undocumented immigrants and to protect the refugee children from Central America.” 

 

Said Carole Segal, a co-chairman of the coalition and a co-founder of Crate and Barrel, “We are losing really good workers. We are causing families to be torn apart.”

 

Thank you Ms. LYNN SWEET.

LABOR DAY: WHAT IT MEANS

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

 

 

LABOR DAY LEGISLATION

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other states had adopted the holiday in honor of workers, and on June 28 of that year, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

 

 

THE FIRST LABOR DAY

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.

 

In 1884 the first Monday in September was selected as the holiday, as originally proposed, and the Central Labor Union urged similar organizations in other cities to follow the example of New York and celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday” on that date. The idea spread with the growth of labor organizations, and in 1885 Labor Day was celebrated in many industrial centers of the country.

A NATIONWIDE HOLIDAY

The form that the observance and celebration of Labor Day should take was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday — a street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations” of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. This became the pattern for the celebrations of Labor Day. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the economic and civic significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the labor movement.

 

The character of the Labor Day celebration has undergone a change in recent years, especially in large industrial centers where mass displays and huge parades have proved a problem. This change, however, is more a shift in emphasis and medium of expression. Labor Day addresses by leading union officials, industrialists, educators, clerics and government officials are given wide coverage in newspapers, radio, and television.

 

The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.

 

JOB CORPS CELEBRATES 50 YEARS OF OPPORTUNITY

 

jobcorps50logo1

 

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson launched a series of programs aimed at restoring our nation’s fundamental promise of equality and opportunity. The Economic Opportunity Act, signed on Aug. 20 of 1964 as part of President Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty,” established the Job Corps, a residential education and training program for disadvantaged young people ages 16-24. Today, nearly 2.7 million students have benefited from the Job Corps. At 125 centers in 48 states, students today learn the skills necessary to succeed in good jobs with high-growth potential in a dynamic economy. Graduates learn career skills in more than 100 areas – from automotive maintenance to information technology, from health care to hospitality, from construction to IT. Some have become doctors, judges and entertainment executives. All across the country, Job Corps centers are celebrating this historic milestone with demonstrations, open houses, local proclamations, and other events. We’re also sharing stories from some of the people whose lives have been most deeply transformed by the program on our blog. You can contribute by submitting your story through our Web form here − or share on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #JobCorps50.

 

 

“The basic bargain of America is that no matter who you are, where you come from or what you look like, if you work hard & play by the rules, you can make it.”

Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

 

Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. After the Haymarket Massacre, which occurred in Chicago on May 4, 1886, U.S. President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Thus, in 1887, it was established as an official holiday in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.

 

The equivalent holiday in Canada, Labour Day, is also celebrated on the first Monday of September. In many other countries (more than 80 worldwide), “Labour Day” is synonymous with, or linked with, International Workers’ Day, which occurs on May 1.

History

In 1882, Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday while serving as secretary of the CLU (Central Labor Union) of New York. Others argue that it was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May 1882, after witnessing the annual labor festival held in Toronto,CanadaOregon was the first state to make it a holiday on February 21, 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.

 

Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, the United States Congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a national holiday; President Grover Cleveland signed it into law a mere six days after the end of the strike. The September date originally chosen by the CLU of New York and observed by many of the nation’s trade unions for the past several years was selected rather than the more widespread International Workers’ Day because Cleveland was concerned that observance of the latter would be associated with the nascent Communist, Syndicalist and Anarchist movements that, though distinct from one another, had rallied to commemorate the Haymarket Affair in International Workers’ Day. All U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and the territories have made it a statutory holiday.

 

Retail Sale Day

To take advantage of large numbers of potential customers free to shop, Labor Day has become an important sale weekend for many retailers in the United States. Some retailers claim it is one of the largest sale dates of the year, second only to the Christmas season’s Black Friday.

 

Ironically, because of the importance of the sale weekend, some of those who are employed in the retail sector not only work on Labor Day, but work longer hours. More Americans work in the retail industry than any other, with retail employment making up 24% of all jobs in the United States. As of 2012, only 3% of those employed in the retail sector were members of a labor union.

 

In high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable to wear white or seersucker.

 

In U.S. sports, Labor Day marks the beginning of the NFL and college football seasons. NCAA teams usually play their first games the weekend of Labor Day, with the NFL traditionally playing their first game the Thursday following Labor Day. The Southern 500 NASCAR auto race was held that day from 1950 to 1983 in Darlington, South Carolina. At Indianapolis Raceway Park, the National Hot Rod Association hold their finals to the U.S. Nationals drag race. Labor Day is the middle point between weeks 1 and 2 of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships held in Flushing Meadows, New York.

 

In the United States, many school districts resume classes around the Labor Day holiday weekend (see First Day of School). Most begin the week before, making Labor Day weekend the first three-day weekend of the school calendar, while others return the Tuesday following Labor Day, allowing families one final get away before the school year begins. Many districts across the Midwest are opting to begin school after Labor Day.

WHAT THE F&^% LABOR DAY MONDAY – ‘Herman Cain Explains President Obama’s Ingenious Plan To Get Himself Impeached Before The Election’

‘When Wiles said that such a move would be an “act of dictatorship” that would most certainly result in impeachment, Cain explained that that is exactly what Obama and the Democrats want to see happen’.

“The Democrats would love for the media to be obsessed with impeachment proceedings leading up to November,” Cain stated “because the Democrats do not want the media to be focusing on failed economic policy, no foreign policy, [and] corruption that’s going on it all of the various departments”.
