651,000 Jobs Cut in FEB — Reid, Pelosi, Obama¬† &¬† Chamber of Commerce Insist on Importing More Foreign Workers

By Roy Beck

Another month has passed. Another half-million (or more) jobs have been lost. And our federal leaders continue to do nothing about auto-pilot programs that are flooding our country with foreign workers.

Nothing has changed since last year when 138,000 new foreign workers were added to the U.S. each month on average.

Here are the latest government facts that can’t seem to soften the hardened hearts of our leaders . . . .

  • The official unemployment rate has soared to 8.1% (highest since 1983)
  • U.S. employers cut 651,000 jobs in February -That is on top of 655,000 jobs lost in January and 681,000 jobs cut in December.
  • 4.4 million — Total jobs eliminated since the recession began in December of 2007.

The number of Americans reeling from the bad job market is staggering:

  • 12.5 million Americans are actively looking for a job and cannot find even part-time employment.
  • Another 8.6 million Americans want a full-time job and have been forced to work part-time.
