How’s that hope and change treating you now?

There are no jobs… But Obama can sing in the shower anyway.

The percentage of young people employed was the lowest ever for a July since the government started tracking the numbers in 1948.
CNS News reported, via Free Republic:

Although more young people found jobs between April and July, the percentage of young people employed in July 2011 was the lowest July rate on record since the government started tracking the numbers in 1948.

Data released on Wednesday by the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that only 48.8 percent of young people ages 16-24 were employed in July, a slightly lower percentage than last year. Youth employment typically peaks in July, as high school and college students work summer jobs and graduates take permanent jobs.

In July 2011, 18.6 million 16- to 24-year-olds were employed, about the same number as last year (although a lower percentage).

Twenty-six percent of employed youth worked in the leisure and hospitality sector (which includes food services), and another 21 percent found jobs in the retail trade industry.

Breaking it down into demographic groups, 50.2 percent of young men ages 16-24 were employed in July, as were 47.3 percent of women, 52.3 percent of whites, 34.6 percent of blacks, 40.5 percent of Asians, and 42.9 percent of Hispanics.

  1. LOL .. well they voted for their “american idol” …guess that strategy didn’t pay off now did it… maybe when the colleges stop pushing their marxist socialist agenda the little kiddies might actually be able to think with what little brain they have

  2. All four of my children fall in this catagory and have TWO jobs each. I’m CERTAIN they will be BLAMED for having work because they are white….not because they are smart, have an excellent work ethic and try hard to achieve their dreams even if it means doing hard, grunt work for low wages.

  3. Oh, don’t think he doesn’t have a job for them:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt2yGzHfy7s

    Why else create the need?

  4. The amazing thing is that you can trace the drop in youth employment DIRECTLY to the moment the Dems forced through that huge increase in the minimum wage. Once again, Democrat social engineering results only in suffering.

  5. That’s because of Baracolipse, now adults are taking those low paying summer jobs because no other jobs exist.

  6. I think it is an amazing piece of irony that the very people who turned out and voted for Obama in droves based upon his vacuous “change we can believe in” message are getting screwed the hardest here.

    I think the Dems may have lost an entire generation of voters here.

  7. I have a little 94 Honda Civic. My son drives it now for his car. He doesn’t know how to take care of it, but I’m an old school hot rodder so I take care of it. Right now it now running because I believe the ECM has crashed and is not letting it start. But, we have more than one vehicle and he’s using his mothers car to go to school. I have a 74 Chevy p/u truck that built up pretty good that I drive around since I don’t drive very much any more since I’m disabled it doesn’t cost me to much so long as I don’t get down on it.

    None of this matters what so ever when it comes to the subject of this article except for one big thing. And that thing is what I have been stressing to my son for the last few days that his little car hasn’t been running, and that is what I’ve been telling him, “What would you do, son, if you had to deal with this yourself, by yourself? What if you had to be the one to pay for all these expensive parts, and you had your rent or electric bill due and you’ve already gotten one shut off notice? And you have a real hard choice to make, fix the car so I can get to work, of keep my electicity on? What if you were between jobs, or the day the car broke down was the day you were laid off from your job? Do you understand the gravity of this situation, that you are being allowed to skate on this problem and not have to deal with it due to it’s complexity and cost? Can you imagine what it would be like if we didn’t have these other cars and you were on foot and had to find some other way to get to school, and around looking for work?”

    I told him the other day coming back from where it’s parked near our house, “Son I just don’t know what you kids are going to do. I just don’t know what kind of jobs you’re going to be able to find that you can make enough money to pay for a decent used car, or it might be a piece of crap car that is broke down all the time, I hope not, but where are you kids going to find jobs that pay enough to where you’ve got the money to pay for cars, apartments, clothes, maybe you might have to go to the doctor for something. I just don’t know where you all are going to find jobs when you kids these days don’t have college educations or even good training available to you anymore so that you could find, if there were these jobs around anymore, jobs were you’ll have money just for basic living expences. I just don’t know what y’all are going to do.”

    He kinda mumbled something. I asked him again when we got home, “I spent this money today, what would you do if you had to pay for it?” At that point he just wanted to be left alone. But this problem the Democrats and Obama has caused, and don’t think I’m leaving out the Republican’s either because I’m not. They are just as responsible for this mess as the Democrats. They all caused it, or they let it happen. Our kids don’t have any future, damn it!! I don’t want to be taking care of one of my two kids for the rest of my life because the Democrats wanted to spread the wealth around and forced all the manufacturing and industry out of the country? Give me a break! Yeah, sure, if my son had the grades to get into college doing something he might have a good start, but for how long before the government takes those jobs down?

    There is just to much insecurity in the country these days, and we’re all feeling it right down to having the money to buy a car part to get the little Honda running. If you don’t have it, then the thing sits. But when you need it, and you can “TAKE” money from other things, is that always the right decision? And what do we learn from all this, if anything?

    Not good people, not good. Our kids have got to be able to take care of themselves without having to come up with the other half from your parents. Then what happens if they die, and things still aren’t better, what then?

  8. Look at the cover of that rag, Barack: I sing in the shower! Should read: I play the violin!

  9. My son thankfully did the different thing and went to a local college to hone his love of working on cars. The local college has auto tech courses sponsored by Ford and Toyota. Toyota says that the courses are one of the best around and 95% of its graduates go on to find jobs soon thereafter. Many are hired by Toyota before they even graduate the courses.

    My son is 22 years old, has been working full time as a auto tech for 2.5 years now, has no education debt and has a fine boss who treats him and the other tech very well. Last week the boss took his 2 employees to dinner because the business made more money last month than any month in the 12 year history of the business.

    One of the first jobs my son had could not keep him on and so my son went about a half mile away and was hired on the spot with an increase in pay.

    His friends who graduated college with degrees are still waiting tables or working at gonowhere jobs trying to pay off their school debt.

    Hopefully one day he will open his own shop and hire a few young kids out of school and continue the American dream.

  10. What I’m interested in is will he sing when he bends over to pick up the soap in Leavenworth – or just smile. This creep needs a nice long vacation in Federal lockup.

  11. Obama can seems to think the youth are one of his options, besides the black and Hispanic voters.

    But Obama could be speaking to the wind when it comes to the Youth of today. They are speaking out in classrooms and on Campus and they have payers remorse when it comes to Obama.

    Many are not voting and those who are, are voting for the other guy. Some have even said anyone could run against Obama and win. That I have said is not a good thing and they should research the candidates rhetoric and be sure it matches their past actions.

    No candidate can be believed unless you know the past history and record. I asked them did they research Obama and many said no or a little but then I asked why then did you vote for him.

    He was a cool and internet savvy guy. Wow! I just about lost it. But I then said, “Will you research the next time around” answers varied but for the most part they are said the would not for again for Obama and they would try to research candidates better. Couldn’t ask for more than that.

  12. Thats because its easier and cheaper to hire illegals .

  13. Part of the problem is that illegals are doing the jobs that young people would normally be doing. Many fast food restaurants are filled with people that barely speak English

  14. 110,000 national guard troops on the East Border. Just like that to help with Irene Hurricane.

    Now, if we can do that, could you imagine the southern borders with these troops for one year or longer until all the laws on the books and all the illegals “criminal ones” were shown the door.

    I wonder what the benefits monetarily would be.

  15. Kind of Debunk Waters theory…..Lady, everyone is hurting with Obama as president. And the Tea Party doesn’t have a DARN thing to do with it.

  16. #2

    Two jobs? Each?!

    Don’t let Obama find out or he’ll take one of their jobs and give the money to some deadbeat who only wants the paycheck, not the job. Sort of a “Spread the Jobs Around” program.

    Hey! Maybe that’s the gist of his ‘secret’ jobs initiative he’s going to reveal on September 3. He’s going to take jobs away from those folks that have had to take on multiple part-time employment to make ends meet. How unfair of them to be hogging all the jobs! (sarc)

  17. While singing Obama has to be very careful of the drain and not slipping through.

    His ears would keep him from falling all the way through. He might come out clean,

    but he would still smell the same. Can’t make a terd smell good.

    powder is dry
