Low unemployment rate? Someone's been drinking the Kool-Aid. If you include all of the people who have quit looking for work, because they can't find any, the actual unemployment rate is over 15%. One third of all jobs created, since Obama was first elected, are in Texas. Obama's policies had nothing to do with that. Most new jobs are also low paying, part time jobs. Face it. Our country is screwed, and it's a direct result of liberal policies.
It may be that unemployment rates have dropped some and that inflation rates are down, but that doesn't mean Americans can stop worrying about the economy. Until the economy is strong enough to support being able to pay every worker a living wage and to make sure that everyone gets health care, it is not strong enough.
Yes, Americans should still be worried about the economy despite the low unemployment and inflation rates. The majority of the jobs that have been created in America have been low paying minimum wage jobs, while the higher paying jobs are being moved overseas. This causes the unemployment rate to drop, but the income per capita is also very low and makes it difficult for minimum wage workers to pay for the necessities in life.
Americans should still be worried about the economy. There are several unemployment figures and the most commonly used one eliminates the majority of those not working. The number for inflation were messed with fairly badly back in the 1980's. Inflation is much higher than the reported numbers. Things are still getting worse.
Recently, there have been some signs that the US economy is in a state of recovery, including lower unemployment and inflation rates. While it's tempting to begin to ease our fears of economy downturn, we must remain vigilant, in no small part because there always looms the possibility that the corporate greed and mismanagement that got us into this mess will cause another disaster in the future.
