Not enough new jobs to drop unemployment, June report says

Hiring was lukewarm last month, with employers adding jobs but not enough to bring the unemployment rate down.

The economy added 80,000 jobs in June, the Labor Department reported Friday, barely an improvement from the 77,000 jobs added in May.

Meanwhile, the unemployment rate remained at 8.2%.

Economists surveyed by CNNMoney had expected to see employers add 95,000 jobs and the unemployment rate to remain unchanged.

    Republicans are doing nada,zilch,nothing till after the election McConnell,Boehner agreed on it,nice ha!Only thing everyone else knows how those hypocrites called republicans are doing it also,it'll be shown in November elections when these republicans will be shown the door.Single digit approval rating for congress pretty pathedic,not even a half assed job bill worth talking about.Went from losing 800,000 drop a month under Bush to a low of 75-80,000 hiring is still better than what was handed this president at inaugeration time ,isn't it!There's always light at the end of the tunnel,even for these hypocrite republicans isn't it.Even thou they're not helping the presidents doing well ,either help or shut up republicans,your moronic crying is driving people of intelligence crazy!!
