Today's show, "The Economy, Jobs & Where Did the Money Go?"
In a report released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics there were only 80,000 jobs added for the month of June 2012.
News of any jobs added is still good news but less than what was predicted and less than what historically predicts a president’s successful reelection. Read the report by clicking here.
The number of unemployed persons (12.7 million) was essentially unchanged in June, and the unemployment rate held at 8.2 percent.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for blacks (14.4 percent) edged up over the month, while the rates for adult men (7.8 percent), adult women (7.4 percent), teenagers (23.7 percent), whites (7.4 percent), and Hispanics (11.0 percent) showed little or no change. The jobless rate for Asians was 6.3 percent in June (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.
