Take A Look At Net Jobs Added

The New York Times is reporting (based on government data) that "Employers Added 94,000 Jobs in November".

So, of course the Republican propaganda machine is bragging about this supposed marvelous accomplishment.

The best estimate I can find of the number of undocumented immigrants is around 50,000 crossing the border each month.

THEREFORE: The increase in jobs of 94,000 minus the illegal immigrants (and not counting legal immigrants) gives NET job openings of 44,000 for the month of November.

ADDED December 31st: Found out on Air America Radio that the U.S. of A. needs 150,000 jobs per month just to keep up with growth in the population (new workers plus immigration). So the falsity of the 'government report' about November is that the NET-NET of new jobs is thus 100,000 fewer jobs than needed – which keeps employment low and the work force scrambling for a living.
