If Vice-President Joe Biden says this is I am going to scream. Why, you might ask well because unemployment for July remained at a flat 9.5%.According the US Department of Labor 75,000 civilian non-farm pay roll jobs were created.

The Government lost 131,00 Jobs; as a result of the completion of the field work involved in the 2010 Census. The actual number is 146,000 census jobs laid off.

What’s worse June’s employment numbers were revised downward to 31,000 jobs were created.  The news confirms that the momentum has run out of steam.

The economy grew on average 90,000  jobs each month. July’s 75,000 was setback. To reduce the unemployment rate  at least 200,000 jobs on average every month to return to pre-recession jobs.

“It’s a double whammy because it causes people to take a psychological step back,” said Tig Gilliam, chief executive of Adecco Group North America, the staffing firm. “Now, it looks like not only has the economy slowed, but maybe it wasn’t as good when it was originally reported as we thought.”

Another bit of bad news is temporary employment fell in July decline by 5,600 jobs  the first time since November  2009.
