The economist from the WSJ said this job growth would have been the same had Hilary been POTUS but watch the Orange Menace take all the credit.

Weird how in just fifty days or even a few months the numbers for jobs go from fabricated to rock solid?

Bob, are you insinuating that right wingers lie? Shame on you! Everyone knows they are incapable of dishonesty............

Why, it wouldn't be moral.

Fox "News" just gave a ringing endorsement of Omaba's economic recovery, though of course giving completely undeserved credit to Trump. Fox viewers are too dumb to understand this, or Fox must think they are.

If you are a Fox regular it goes without saying that you are pretty dumb.

I don't know, obviously. I was just wondering if the retireing baby boomers leaving the work force had anything to do with that number?

that link is a quick snipet of info, not at all conclusive

People entering and leaving workforce has to do with the unemployment rate. All that has nothing direct to do with the jobs number, which is basically 'additional hires - layoffs.'

Actually, that should be how it is. However, it looks to me like the BLS uses unemployment as compared to previous months, as one of the primary tools for the report. That would be fine, but it does not take into account the boomers retiring. Maybe in another part of their equation the compensate for it. However, so far I have not been able to find anything reference that piece of the puzzle.
