Unemployment Rises to 9.6%, 54,000 Jobs Lost
According to the U.S. Dept. of Labor, unemployment in the United States has risen to 9.6% with a total of approximately 56, 000 jobs lost. Why the Obama administration and the media keep trying to sell the "recovery summer" rhetoric is beyond me. The stimulus has failed, and so far employing census workers and IRS employees isn't exactly job growth where the president should be taking credit for, much less embelleshing any job growth because of them.
