Jobless Rate For Women And Blacks Up Sharply

From CNS News:

Unemployment Rises for Women, African-Americans in December

By Matt Cover | January 4, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – Government unemployment numbers for December showed that while the general unemployment rate remained flat at 7.8 percent, unemployment for women and African-Americans rose despite an economy that created 155,000 jobs.

Unemployment for women rose to 7.3 percent in December from 7.0 percent while the rate for African-Americans rose sharply to 14.0 percent from 13.2 percent in November

This is the thanks they get for voting for Mr. Obama.

The number of employed African Americans actually fell in December – a month that typically sees a spike in job creation as employers add temporary positions to handle the holiday shopping season.

The number of employed African Americans fell from nearly 16 million to 15.8 million in December.

By contrast, the unemployment rate for Whites remained nearly a full point below the national average at 6.9 percent in December.

And yet the unemployment rate for everyone went up in November through December, which are usually the two peak hiring months of the year.

But something tells us the unemployment rate for government workers went down again last month.

    Sun will explode tomorrow – women and minorities hardest hit…

    so who got the jobs? do the math –

    white men = no change
    over all = no change
    black and women = down
    what demographic went up to balance the loss of jobs to women and blacks?
