That's the best since 1999.

Contrary to all the gloom and doom from the left, it looks like things are indeed getting better.

Of course the left will try to argue that all 2.2 million of these jobs were just people getting hired at McDonald's!

Didn't see that data, so I can't comment. I just heard it on this show that's on NBC ever Saturday morning.

But if I were guessing, it would likely be services. That without further breakdown still wouldn't tell us much.

But I am happy that at least people who want jobs are able to find something to do.

And the left would say another 500,000 jobs will be needed B4 Dubya creates a job

"The report showed manufacturing jobs advanced by 3,000. The service-providing industry added 144,000 jobs. That included a 20,000 decrease in retail jobs but increases of 41,000 in professional and business services and 47,000 in health and education services. The construction industry added 7,000 jobs a second straight month.

Average hourly earnings rose two cents to $15.86 in December. The increase in year-on-year terms was 2.7%. The average work week rose six minutes to 33.8 hours. "

Realy doesnt explain, how I as an employer, report the creation of a new job, or elimination of an old job. Are they just estimating the numbers based on things like new unemployment claims?

I've heard that there are two ways that the fed tracks jobs...
One is ignored by the left.
The other basically polls the same business over and over throughout the years, hence leaving many people uncounted (due to a large number ot "telecommuters" and similar situations)....but, I could be wrong

Taxes paid on that SS# , Which would include aera of employment.

Well maybe vial payroll adding new SS#s and with holding reports. - that's a White collar issue - I'm on the floor making product - better and cheaper that our asian competitors such that our parts are shipped to asia instead of buying local asian made parts. THAT brings pride back to AMERICAN MFG.
