“Only 38.6% of Jobs Added Under Obama Have Gone to Women”
What in the name of Amanda Marcotte’s rancid, well-worn pooter is going on here? Some sort of War on Women?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m OUTRAGED:
Since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009, the U.S. economy has employed an additional 3,590,000 people, but only 1,386,000 of those people—or 38.6 percent–have been women.At the same time, women represent 46.8 percent of the national civilian labor force. That means women are getting a smaller share of the jobs being added to the economy (38.6 percent) than their representation in the civilian labor force (46.8 percent).
The percentage of the added jobs that have gone to women is even smaller if measured from the post-recession nadir of employment, which took place in December 2009. Since then, only 37.8 percent of the net additional jobs have gone to women.
Well, if anything, this explains why so many women stay in abusive relationships. And the pimp hand is strong with this Won.
