Abysmal is the best way to describe this Obama recovery. Hope and change doesn’t create jobs. Where’s the motivation when it’s easier to do nothing and collect a check from the government? Ben Casselman of The Wall Street Journal writes:
The recession ended four years ago. But for many job seekers, it hasn’t felt like much of a recovery.
Nearly 12 million Americans were unemployed in May, down from a peak of more than 15 million, but still more than four million higher than when the recession began in December 2007. Millions more have given up looking for work and no longer count as unemployed. The share of the population that is working or looking for work stands near a three-decade low.
