Be excited! The number of payroll jobs added in August 2013 was 169,000 out of 11,316,000 reported unemployed.
This is pathetic, are we as a country honestly all supposed to rejoyce over the fact that 169,000 payroll jobs where created across the United States, I wonder how many of those 169,000 went to actual Unemployed Americans who are qualified for the job, not some high tech immigrant from another country! All while millions are unemployed or who knows the number of underemployed and just lost hope all together?
They consider a Health Care worker a low-wage sector job? No wonder so much illness is being spread. Why, shouldn't this nations health be one of the utmost important things?
Instead we have to look forward to paying for Obama Care coming up, and a war no one wants. On top of sending money to other countries that hate us to begin with.
But Lucky Day, I'm happy they created 169,000 jobs last month.

This measure, known as the labor force participation rate, was at its lowest level since 1978.
Earlier estimates of job growth in July and June were also revised sharply downward, and hiring over the summer months was largely driven by low-wage sectors like retail, food services and health care.
