Long-Term Unemployment Is Falling, but Still Work to Do
September 01, 2014
06:00 AM EDT
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.
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.
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.

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.
