Still no Jobs Recovery

In September 2012, the employment to working age population percentage was a low 58.8%.

In September 2013, the employment to working age population percentage is a low 58.8%.

These are the non-seasonally adjusted Household Survey numbers from the BLS.

This is perfect stagnation, continuing the general stagnation in employment going back to 2010 in this never-ending Great Socialist Recession.  This will continue to be the story at least until some time in 2017, assuming that a Democrat is not elected into the presidency to replace Obama.  Even then, we have to hope his replacement will actually begin a program to reign in the growth of government and end many of the anti-business, anti-energy, and anti-medical care policies now in place.
