Morning Coffee Break – Unemployment, San Bernardino, Mitt, Chick-Fil-A – for Friday, August 3, 2012
U-6 “real” unemployment, San Bernardino, toxic Mitt?, Chick-Fil-A,
- June’s job’s report was revised down from 80,000 to 64,000, with a better than expected July report of 165,000 jobs created. The unemployment rate rose to 8.3%, however, the number economists watch that gives the true picture of unemployment is the U-6 rate, which is in double digits in 47 out of 50 states.
- When you begin to feel sorry for yourself, consider the residents of San Bernardino, whose city officially filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy (h/t AP).
- Gotta love Buzzfeed, they’re on to Axelrod’s strategy, make Mitt so toxic, the white vote stays home, hence Obama wins another term.
- Not employee of the year material. The goofball, who taped himself harassing a Chick-Fil-A employee in a drive-thru window, got his walking papers. (h/t Daily Caller) He was a McDonald’s man at heart anyway.
