+-The government claims that they've created millions of new jobs. Where ARE these new jobs ?

In my state, there are NO new ads looking for workers, and those who were out of work BEFORE these alleged job creations are STILL looking for work now.

    Governments only create government jobs

    They do not create civilian jobs

    However it recently came to light that there were over 1/2 million fewer civilian jobs created then Trump tried to take credit for.

    Why do Republicans always cook thee books to mszke employment numbers look good, I remember in the 1980s when the Reagan administration started counting the military as being employed (before that they were not counted either way) so using both active duty, reserves and guard over 2 million jobs were added to the rolls without one actually being created

    You believe the government? If you can't find a job, thats on you. Not the government.

    We don't know where you are located or why you can't find a job.

    What we do know is that the scenario you mention doesn't exist:

    Only one state has higher unemployment in July 2019 than they did in December 2016 - Colorado

    The unemployment rate in Colorado has increased .1% during that time but on the flip side 207,410 more people are working in July 2019 than they were in Dec 2016.

    Where do you live?? There's hardly a business I frequent that doesn't have a help wanted ad in their window. The fast food places, the mall, the home improvement stores, the book store, etc.

    There was just an article a few days ago, that was saying 500,000 fewer jobs were created than was previously report. I do not believe that there has been significant job creation. Within the private sector or otherwise.

    My definition of government-created jobs are *actual* government jobs.

    The government *can* create circumstances that makes it more likely that companies will be hiring more.

    The State government can also be critically helpful or harmful in that regard.

    The government did not create jobs, it was the private sector. Although many economist think Trump's policies are going to crash the economy.
