Why The Jobs Report Is Not Nearly As Strong As You Are Being Told

Jobs Unemployment Main Street - Public DomainHappy days are here again? On Friday, the mainstream media was buzzing with the news that the U.S. economy had added 255,000 jobs during the month of July. But as you will see below, the U.S. economy did not add 255,000 jobs during the month of July. In fact, without an extremely generous “seasonal adjustment”, the number of jobs added during the month of July would not have even kept up with population growth. But the pretend number sounds so much better than the real number, and so the pretend number is what is being promoted for public consumption.

Why doesn’t the government ever just tell us the plain facts? Unfortunately, we live at a time when “spin” is everything, and just about everyone in the mainstream media seemed quite pleased with the “good jobs report” on Friday. However, as Zero Hedge has pointed out, the truth is that the “unadjusted” numbers tell a very different story…

As Mitsubishi UFJ strategist John Herrmann wrote in a note shortly after the report, the “jobs headline overstates” strength of payrolls. He adds that the unadjusted data show a “middling report” that’s “nowhere as strong as the headline” and adds that private payrolls unadjusted +85k in July vs seasonally adjusted +217k.

In Herrmann’s view, the government applied a “very benign seasonal adjustment factor upon private payrolls to transform a soft private payroll gain into a strong gain.”

He did not provide a reason why the government would do that.

Every month, the U.S. economy must create at least 150,000 new jobs just to keep up with population growth. According to the unadjusted numbers, we did not hit that threshold, and so the employment situation in this country actually got worse last month.

In America today, there are 7.8 million Americans that are considered to be officially unemployed, and another 94.3 million working age Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force”.

When you add those two numbers together, you get a grand total of 102 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now.

Rather than focusing on the headline “unemployment” figure, we get a much fairer look at the employment crisis in the United States when we examine the employment-population ratio. The following chart comes directly from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and it shows that the percentage of Americans that are employed has never even come close to getting back to where it was just prior to the last recession…

Employment-Population Ratio 2016

Over the past couple of years we have seen a slight bump in this number, and that is good, but normally after a recession ends the employment-population ratio goes back to at least as high as it was before.  Unfortunately, this has not happened after the last two recessions.  The following comes from Wolf Richter

The ratio always drops during recessions, but before 2001, it always climbed to higher highs during the recoveries. The 2001 recession and subsequent recovery changed this. For the first time, the ratio never fully recovered, never got even close to fully recovering. That was a new phenomenon: employment growth could no longer keep up with population growth.

When the Great Recession hit, the ratio plunged from its lower starting point at the fastest pace on record (going back to 1948). The Fed’s efforts were all focused exclusively on bailing out bondholders, re-inflating the stock market, re-inflating the housing market, and generally creating what had become the official Fed policy at the time, the Wealth Effect (here’s Bernanke himself explaining it). This has re-inflated asset prices – many of them way beyond their prior bubble peaks.

But the Fed’s astounding focus on capital accelerated the already changing dynamics of the economy, at the expense of labor.

Even the Wall Street Journal admits that we are in the weakest “economic recovery” since 1949, and now there are lots of signs that we have entered a brand new economic downturn.  Here are just a few examples from Chad Shoop

  • Ford, GM and Chrysler — three of the U.S.’ largest auto companies — reported sales for July that missed estimates: down 3%, 1.9% and up 0.3%, respectively.
  • Delta Airlines, one of the largest airlines in the world, said revenue fell 7% in July as part of its monthly performance update.
  • Macy’s, the biggest department store company, reported a decline in sales for July, leading to more aggressive markdowns and an industry-wide sell-off.

And lots of ominous signs continue to pop up on Wall Street as well.  For one thing, the Libor rate has surged to the highest level since the last financial crisis.  If you are not familiar with Libor, here is a pretty good explanation of it from Business Insider

The Libor, or London Interbank Offered Rate, measures the interest rate at which banks lend to each other at different durations, and its sharp jump was a harbinger of the financial crisis.

And according to that same article, the Libor rate is now the highest that we have seen since early 2009

In the past month, the Libor rate has spiked to rates not seen since the first quarter of 2009, the heart of the banking meltdown.

Not to mention, the spread between the Libor and the Overnight Index Swap rate, which tracks the lending rate from the Federal Reserve, has widened, another potentially worrying sign.

But of course I have been quoting facts and figures like this for months, and yet U.S. financial markets continue to hold it together.

There are literally dozens of parallels between the global financial crisis of 2008 and what is happening in 2016, but Wall Street continues to defy the laws of economics.

Of course it won’t last forever, but it certainly has been a sight to behold.

And I am certainly not alone in my analysis.  As I noted the other day, DoubleLine Capital CEO Jeffrey Gundlach is entirely convinced that stocks “should be down massively”…

“The artist Christopher Wool has a word painting, ‘Sell the house, sell the car, sell the kids.’ That’s exactly how I feel – sell everything. Nothing here looks good,” Gundlach said in a telephone interview. “The stock markets should be down massively but investors seem to have been hypnotized that nothing can go wrong.”

For the moment, investors continue to pay extremely irrational prices for stocks, and the mainstream media is just giddy about the state of the economy.

So let us enjoy this very strange period of stability for however much longer it lasts, but let us also protect ourselves from the horrible crash that will inevitably follow.

  • anonymous

    How do we protect ourselves from complete destruction? Sometimes I feel like preparation in the physical realm is futile. The preparation I try to focus on today is a spiritual preparation. Getting closer to God. If you don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ yet, now would be a good time.

    Why would anyone trust anything the government says or does? How often does the electorate have to be fooled before it catches on to the ongoing scam? You have to suspend all judgment and imagination to buy into the ponzi economy.

    • No Soup for you!

      We have 102 million unemployed people certainly a few million of them are counted in the 52 million receiving gov’t assistance, all are well inside the trap, they can’t get out.
      When the trap door shuts, they will have no choice but to capitulate and comply with every demand made of them in order to qualify to receive basic living products and services from the gov’t.

      I don’t think the gov’t will address this issue until it benefits them to do so, then it will be overstated in order to say their hand is forced. When this happens it will impact everyone as it will require more revenue (taxes) to address the issue.
      Revenue to help the population must come from somewhere, they will insist we pay, unlike the bailouts and QE infinity for corporations where they created money for their problems.

            People are looking for hope in a financially hopeless world. Is it any wonder why people look to a power greater than themselves? Some people choose money, government, weapons, religions, drugs, sex, relationships to distract from this hopelessness. There is an economic side to religion, just look at the Vatican (which I do not endorse). It’s a bit of an enigma, it’s a human condition. Maybe you can offer more valid points to your argument instead of just using simple insults.

          • alan

            So if thats the case then all religious people would be rich? God gives money to those who pray to it? So then we can say poor people must be evil because god didn’t give them money.
            Economic collapses happen all the time and have always happened and will continue to.

          • anonymous

            The Vatican is rich. Do some research……By the way there is a difference between religious people and spiritual people. God blesses who He chooses to bless. Ask and you may receive, but there are blessings greater than financial riches.

          • dmengdon

            I’m sorry you’ve been so deceived, God loves everybody because were all his children. He loves us so much he sent his only son to die on the cross so we could be saved. God is real and his existence is all around you. Religion has nothing to do with this. God gave us free will because he doesn’t want to demand your love and wants you to give it freely. He loves you and all you have to do is ask. Read the bible and Gods word might open your eyes. God is the only truth.

      Within the next 20,000 years there’s a pretty good chance the super volcano at Yosemite will erupt and an extinction level meteorite will hit the Earth. Bad things will inevitably happen. The question we need to ask is when will the “horrible crash” occur. I bet most of you will be long dead before the stock market crashes or Jesus returns.

      If he made a prediction it would probably be wrong. I don’t know if anybody thought the financial collapse would take as long as it has. The problem is there are too many variables. The wealthy can prolong a collapse as long as they have the resources to do so. I think that might be the determining factor though. A total depletion of the world’s available food (maybe drought) and water would surely speed things up. Or the more obvious scenario, nuclear war.


      No one can predict an exact date. The system is unraveling. Just open your eyes and see for yourself what is happening. Listen to people talk. I was at the mechanic last week. He was complaining to another customer business had never been so slow. While at the mechanic another customer jumped into the conversation and said that he and his wife were both working 2 jobs to stay afloat. The man lives in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. Which is an upscale neighborhood. Again, keep your eyes and ears open. And you will learn the truth of what’s really happening in our great country.

  • df NJ

    As long as people continue to choose to go to work the amount of money they are paying is enough. All the commentary doesn’t change the fact that people are willing to suffer for their meager wages. The grocery stores are full. The roads are full. People are working. People are eating and pooping. People are copulating and babies are being born. Life goes on. No matter how much you think people are “stupid” people are just trying to live their lives the best way they know how.

    You only criticize and hate in other people what you do not like about your own character. The next time you pass judgment on someone else maybe you should think what that says about you instead.

    According to the Center for Migration Studies, there are about 7 million “undocumented workers” in the US. That means these are people either getting paid in cash, or somehow slipping through the cracks of the IRS.

    The total of illegal immigrants, which is a very soft phrase since a majority of those receive some sort of “taxpayer benefits/handouts/food assistance”, is reported to be in the neighborhood of 30 million, or even higher.

    The DHS figure of 11 million is once again…”an adjusted” figure, so take that for what it is worth.

    When adding up the total disabled and partially disabled, of approximately 51 million, with the 48 million over the age of 65, and the 80 million that are 18 or younger, the real totals start looking obscure.

    Obscure because the US Dept. of Labor, claims there are 125 million Americans working full time, or 30 hours or more each week ( hours considered full time was changed by Obamacare from what used to be about 38 weekly hours or more).

    Let’s do a little tally here, disabled, plus the over and underage group totals (note: minus the approximate totals, from these three groups, estimated to be working full time of about 10 million) equals 169 million, “documented” citizens, not in the full time workforce.

    For ghits and siggles, let’s cut the approximated figure of 30 million “undocumented” down to 16 million, and add that into the population, we get another approximate of about 8 million of those thrown into the non available workers, so we’re back to about 177 million non workers, or part time workers (which means earning below poverty level ),

    Add in the approximate number of “officially unemployed” of about 8 million, and we’re up to 185 million unavailable to work, or working part time, which is living below poverty level, income wise; or looking for work.

    The point is, “IF”, the system collapses,the US gov becomes bankrupt, and 2/3rds of the US population is “cut off” from benefits such as social security retirement/disability, social services such as free medical and food stamp/EBT funds, as well as unemployment benefits; and any savings or banking investments get locked up or disappear, then chaos and calamity ensue. A large portion of the “reported” 125 million full time workers would loose their jobs, as well as, any income, if the gov becomes bankrupt.

    As a realist, and believer in prophetic visions, I could see David Wilkerson’s vision of 1000 fires burning in the greater NY City area, which reaches into parts of New Jersey and Conn. Couple that with rioting, killings, and looting. Multiply that with the same type scenario playing out all across America’s major cities, and the smoke of her torment will rise unto the Heavens.

    Since the US invaded Iraq, gasoline prices have doubled, food and everything else doubled, but everyone salaries have barely budged in 12 years. The economy is going nowhere as long as wages are kept depressed. This is by far the weakest recovery in the last 100 years.

    For all intents and purposes, the vast majority of the so-called ‘jobs’ out there are essentially worthless, and hence the lingering 23.0% unemployment rate (Shadow Statistics) in the Greater Depression.

      God is everywhere so the “far from” is only in your mind.

      • Preacher62

        No the “far from” is in your heart.
        Isaiah 29:13 (NKJV) Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,

    “102 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now.”

    Correct, but 75 million of them are retired persons, school students, people who are disabled or stay-at-home moms.
