Number of Women w/o Jobs Hits Record High

It’s an Obama economy. Lots of Obama trolling about birth control, lots of illegal aliens crossing the border,  but no actual jobs for women. There are more working age women chasing fewer jobs.

The number of women 16 and older not in the labor force climbed to a record high of 55,299,000 in June, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In June, according to BLS, the labor force participation rate for women was 56.8 percent, the lowest it has been this year.

June’s participation rate of 56.8 percent matches the participation rate in October of 2013, but has not been this low for years — not since October 1988.

Of course the Democrats find this sort of thing convenient. The Democrats gain from manufacturing unemployment and creating dependency.

It’s why unemployment for Democratic bases looks so grim.
