(Market Watch) The Dept of Labor dubiously reported that the economy added 157,000 jobs in January but despite the jobs data, the nation’s unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9%

Yesterday I wrote here that new claims for jobless benefits jumped 38,000 during the week ending the 26 January, the Dept of Labor reported yesterday.

Flashback: Remember before taking office four years ago that Barack Obama pledged to put a renewed focus on jobs when the nations unemployment rate stood at 7.6% which Obama claimed the nations jobless rate “…could not be more serious…these numbers demand action.”
