Unemployment declines in NJ, but really, the numbers just suck

From the Star Ledger:

Economist says N.J. jobs market does ‘not have any momentum’

Despite the thousands of Atlantic City casino workers who lost their jobs last month, the unemployment rate in New Jersey ticked down slightly in September, according to preliminary federal data released by the state today, but still remained above the national average.

The state’s unemployment rate dropped to 6.5 percent in September from 6.6 percent in August, the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development reported, above the national rate of 5.9 percent. New Jersey’s unemployment rate in July also stood at 6.5 percent.

A spokesman for Gov. Chris Christie noted in an e-mail to reporters that “at 6.5 percent, the unemployment rate remains at its lowest level since November 2008” and that the rate had fallen 1.4 percentage points year over year. In September 2013, the unemployment rate was 7.9 percent.

The state also added 600 jobs overall last month, driven by a bump in public-sector employment that state officials attributed to larger-than-expected seasonal hiring in the education field.

Patrick O’Keefe, director of economic research at CohnReznick in Roseland, said the monthly report brought to mind a line from the poem “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”: “Day after day, day after day, We stuck, nor breath nor motion; As idle as a painted ship Upon a painted ocean.”

“That metaphor of a becalmed ship is really what occurred to me when going through it,” he said. “It’s good that we’re not sliding backwards but clearly we do not have any momentum currently in the state’s job markets.”

The preliminary data shows New Jersey lost 6,100 private-sector jobs in September following the closure of three casinos in Atlantic City, while the public sector added 6,700 jobs. The increase in government employment was due to “greater-than-expected seasonal hiring in the state education component,” according to state officials.

The state gained 6,700 jobs year-over-year, according to the report, with 7,000 jobs added in the private sector and 300 jobs lost in the public sector.

The state labor department noted that August’s employment numbers were revised in the report, “showing a gain of 2,900 private sector jobs instead of the originally reported loss of 800.”

    Nice piece from Michael Diamond at the APP, this should have probably been the headline.

    What comeback? Why NJ’s economy has tanked

    New Jersey’s economy is paying a heavy price for a decade of negligence.

    The signs of failure are all around us five years after the end of the Great Recession. New Jersey’s job growth rate — measured in fractions of a percentage point — is the second worst in the nation, just ahead of Alaska.

    New Jersey’s middle class has lost billions in income through layoffs, salary cuts and wage freezes. More than 100,000 job seekers have been unemployed for months on end. Thousands more have simply given up looking for work, relying on handouts, family and part-time jobs to make ends meet.

    And New Jersey remains a lost soul in the nation: It is one of just three states that saw more people falling into poverty than rising above it.

    The nation’s labor market has recovered, but not in New Jersey. From August 2013 to August 2014, a revised report released Thursday showed the state added 6,700 jobs, amounting to 558 new jobs a month. It is so few that it would take 44 years to find positions in the state for New Jersey’s 294,700 unemployed residents.

    The fall has been fast.

    A Dallas Hospital Worker Self-Monitoring for Ebola Left Texas on a Cruise

    A Dallas hospital employee, described as possibly having come into contact with fluid samples from the deceased Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan, left the U.S. on a cruise ship on Sunday, the State Department said early Friday morning.

  3. grim says:

    If they can’t legislate for rail cars carrying tar sands, what chance is there for legislation for an LM truck.

    I would think the safety of a pipeline is significantly higher than anything on rolling stock, but that too is taboo.

    Perhaps instead of trying to ban everyone who is delivering a product we are all clamoring to buy, we as consumers buy less of it? Ah shit, who am I kidding.

  4. Ottoman says:

    Good thing there’s no union in that hospital to coordinate and monitor safety and regulations in that blameless, privately run hospital. The free market will stop Ebola.

    From the Record:

    Stile: Christie changes his tune with new jobless figures

    When New Jersey’s unemployment rate climbed close to 10 percent two years ago, a clearly annoyed Governor Christie complained about the way the U.S. Department of Labor arrived at the number.

    He called the rate “screwy,” and said the numbers “made no sense.” It was clear why: the nagging rate, higher than the national average, undermined his “Jersey Comeback” narrative.

    But there was no complaint with the most recent unemployment data released Thursday. In fact, Christie’s media department touted the news as a triumph. Even @GovChristie, the official Christie Twitter account, hailed the news that the rate dipped from 6.6 percent to 6.5 percent in September.

    “New job numbers out today: At 6.5 percent, the unemployment rate remains at its lowest level since November 2008 here in New Jersey,” the message read.

    Christie is hardly the first politician to have a love-hate relationship with the unemployment rate. He was part of a chorus of elected officials in the Northeast who had raised similar complaints in 2012. Yet, none of them lashed out with the same aggression and ferocity as Christie.

    And Thursday’s positive embrace also reveals a tactical side of Christie: He’ll bash the bearer of bad news who threatens to tarnish his record, but then become best friends when the news can boost his record and image.

    Christie mocked David Rosen, the chief legislative budget analyst, as the “Dr. Kevorkian of the numbers” when his economic forecasts contradicted the governor’s rosier comeback scenarios. But when Christie officials announced last month that the administration was switching the way it was reporting its annual revenue growth – a move critics say will make it easier for Christie to bury bad news – Christie officials said they were simply adopting the same method used by Rosen’s office.

    Does demand justify method?

    The problem here is the product. The is so much acid in the tar sands it is corroding the rolling stock. The Ethanol they are shipping has to go in heated cars. Heating a highly volatile produce and then moving it at speed through High dense neighborhoods. The funny part is that its probably safer than a pipe line. The viscosity of the tar sands means higher pressure in the pipeline. The amount of acid means the roiling stock will corrode out and be easier to replace.

    The Bergan Co mayors are starting to discuss this issue given the amount of traffic going down to the Linden refineries.

  11. Fabius Maximus says:

    Lib, the 20yr half life on the Fusion product means it is slightly easier to deal with. The Japanese will be experts in this field, given the amount being generated at Fcukedupshima.

  12. nwnj says:

    Well, in the lab worker’s defense I’m sure she bought the cruise months ago — forget about a refund — even if you tell them you have Ebola.

    And let’s not forget the Freiden and those losers at the CDC said that there is no risk. If it’s too much to ask Nancy Snyderman to eat take out food for a few weeks why should she cancel the trip?

  13. grim says:

    The Bergan Co mayors are starting to discuss this issue given the amount of traffic going down to the Linden refineries.

    Sorry, but the Bergen County Mayors are wholly unqualified to discuss such topics, and they will devolve into speculation and fear-mongering. Perhaps they should defer to the DOT and FRA, who are more suited to regulate this area.

    I don’t want to assign additional work for the Bergen Mayors, but perhaps they should consider focusing on bringing and keeping jobs here, and maybe a bit less on transportation policy. Seems they the politicians are going out of their way, at breakneck speed, to kill jobs in the state.

    What’s next, shutting down all the refineries in NJ? I’m sure PA would love to have them, they’ll stick them right on the edge of the Delaware.

    It’s the reason why I can’t justify the 629K split level special equipped with avocado rugs and walnut paneling. The only thing out there in the desirable towns are estate sales and empty nesters ready to make a move.

  15. grim says:

    We need to eminent domain all the railroads with open space tax dollars and turn them all into bike paths. People need alternative transportation methods, and the investment in green alternatives will drive job growth in the state.

  16. grim says:

    Meanwhile, the tree huggers are proudly boasting about how much less carbon they are generating because they installed a new high efficiency condensing boiler in their house, to the tune of $10,000. They did their part, look at how green this is compared to the old 80% efficient boiler? Moral superiority, and spotlit with LED lighting (TM) to boot. They even have solar panels on the roof! Wow!

    But the natural gas being fracked and piped in, that powers their boiler, that heats their house, that cooks their food, that runs the power plants that generate the electricity to light their LED lights? That’s the f*cking problem? Hypocrites.

    You don’t want tar sand oil? Why are you not advocating for oil rigs off the NJ coast? They oil off the coast of NJ is significantly cleaner than the tar sands oil, and we could pipe it right into Linden without even touching a neighborhood, even a non-densely populated one. While we’re at it, how about you fight to kill the backlash against wind turbines off the coast.

    I understand NJ’s approach, it’s to stick our collective heads in the sand with regards to where energy actually comes from, and to perpetuate the myth that electricity comes from fairies hidden in the walls, because as long as we don’t actually see it, of the vestiges of the system that support it, it isn’t actually a problem.

  17. Godzilla does Jerzyconomics says:

    As much as everyone wants to bash one side or the other. The Jerzyconomics issue is that we are returning to the mean.

    For decades NJ & CT were 1 & 2 in income per capita. Both states benefited from big manufacturing, NJ had big pharma and big tech (Ma Bell), CT had big insurance, and both had resident that were employed in NYC’s multiple big everything.

    Well all those jobs are gone. NJ is doing like every state out there that now has to depend on McJobs, odd jobs, day laborer jobs, and assorted drug dealing and hooking.

    As such it always look bad when you go from driving the expensive topped out cadillac to basic no-frill chevy.

    [1] grim,

    Good article, largely on point, but the writer is myopic on a few things, notably this one:

    “But since the recession ended, New Jersey has another problem on its hands: Some of its most prized employers are dropping everything and leaving for Massachusetts and California — states that are just as expensive but have powerful networks of academic research and investment capital that cutting-edge and high-paying companies crave, observers say.”

    Mass. and Cali? Relying anecdotally on Sanofi’s move misses the larger picture. I’d wager far more companies and jobs moved to either PA or to southern states like TX, NC, SC or GA.

    There are other myopic moments in the article but they don’t detract much from the message. Besides, I haven’t the time and don’t much feel like dissecting it.

    On an unrelated note, I was talking to friend who is looking to move out of Maplewood recently. He told me he’s sick of the libtard attitude of the people there. As an example, he pointed me to this thread on a local Maplewood forum.

    http://forum.maplewoodonline.com//discussion/110456/

    In brief, a Maplewood mom is ranting because her nanny quit and took a job with another family for more money. The mom thinks she is the victim of “class warfare” being waged by “the 1%” against her and her family.

    Yes, that’s right — some overworked, likely underpaid domestic worker dared to find a better job for more money . . . and it’s the fault of the greedy 1% and the Koch Brothers!

    Some choice quotes from said thread:

    “This is different. It just is. It’s more personal, it’s a mom undercutting another mom, and it smacks of class warfare. Direct quote: ‘What are they paying you? I’ll pay you more!’ . . . I still think poaching someone’s babysitter off the playground is a ****ty thing to do. And very 1%. . . . Being a working mom is hard enough without having to worry that another mom is going to cut you down.”

    The complete self-centered attitude, disregard for domestic worker, and instant resort to blaming “the 1%” (that she very well may be in herself) is almost a parody.

    “For decades, people have been predicting how the rise of advanced computing and robotic technologies will affect our lives. On one side, there are warnings that robots will displace humans in the economy, destroying livelihoods, especially for low-skill workers. Others look forward to the vast economic opportunities that robots will present, claiming, for example, that they will improve productivity or take on undesirable jobs.
    The venture capitalist Peter Thiel, who recently joined the debate, falls into the latter camp, asserting that robots will save us from a future of high prices and low wages.”

    Popping

    HAHAHA Carnival, speaking as someone who works with med techs they should be the last people exposed to an infectious disease as they do have protocols that they do follow. Otherwise they would already be walking corpses.

    As far as protocol for a highly infectious vector like Ebola, despite universal precautions you still quarantine staff for +14 days past possible incubation period just to be sure. You do not let them go home, especially don’t let them travel and most of all limit their exposure to the general population. If you don’t do those things you get the outright panic that is going on. Oh and you limit travel to and from those countries of origin until it burns itself out so you don’t have exposure risk.

    Hey anon and Ottoman, if this is not the single biggest example that the president cares nothing for the common citizen and only cares for his image and legacy then I do not know what it. This guy will be a good soldier and fall on his sword if things get out of hand. You can be sure he will protect Dear Leader at all costs.

    Let em channel Lib here, “Baa, Baa, Baa”.

    Hype you really have to love this sh*t it is like the worst B-movie on an outbreak ever made. If Chairman O was white and republican the howling would be deafening.

  70. Fast Eddie says:

    68 & 69,

    It’s almost as if he’s playing a game to see how f.ucking outrageous he could be and still get away with it. I think he became president just to toy with people and f.uck around.

    Ebola at the Pentagon?

  72. All Hype says:

    Using Obama logic, I look forward to a podiatrist taking the top job at the DOJ.

  73. grim says:

    72 – Given the choice between a politician and a podiatrist, I’d trust the podiatrist.

  74. AG says:

    It’s will be only a matter of days before Ebola pops up in New York. Then it’s game on mutha f-ckas! I hate Obama with a passion and I’m so suk of looking at his gorilla wife.

  75. painhrtz - whatever says:

    Wow AG racist much. Wookie I could agree with as she is likely to rip your arms off if she doesn’t like your menu choices but gorilla c’mon man.

    Grim I agree the podiatrist would be infinitely more qualified.

    Personally I look forward to them appointing an unladen European Swallow as the head of the department of transportation. As well As Bernie Madoff’s pardon and eventual appointment as head of the treasury. Wait he might be overly qualified.

    Is is the big gorrilla hands that turn your off? Luckily my massive girth even when in the hands of a big hand gorrilla girl still looks large. But I understand how some of the less “gifted”guys might be turnd off.

  78. Ragnar says:

    Holy fudge, I just caught a glimpse of the face of the US Health & Human Services Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, Dr Nicole Lurie. Right wing sites are noting how she is MIA regarding the Ebola topic which is right up her alley as some sort of health emergency czar. I don’t usually comment on looks, but she looks like a half-completed tranny with a big ole adams apple. Was she perhaps was hired to check some sort of diversity box? Google images for Dr Nicole Lurie, and brace yourself.

    Just Republicans. Thanks Obama!

  86. Juice Box says:

    Yeah we are back to this..dead kids blood found in the cop car. He wasn’t attacking the officer right Rev Al?

    “FBI forensic tests showed the gun was fired twice in the car, with one bullet hitting Brown’s arm while the second one missed, the newspaper said.”

    “Separate federal and local investigations are still ongoing, but the government officials said the evidence so far does not indicate that the officer violated any civil rights, The Times reported.”
