Gallup’s just-released job creation numbers prove the economy is rebounding, posting the highest gains since the September, 2008 crash, during which the presidential campaign took a decided turn towards candidate Barack Obama. John McCain suspended his campaign after claiming the economy was strong that month, catapulting voters toward Obama.
“The Job Creation Index of +16 is based on 33% of workers nationwide saying their employers are hiring workers and expanding the size of their workforce, and 17% saying their employers are letting workers go and reducing the size of their workforce,” Gallup reports. “Hiring and firing have each improved by one percentage point since December. The percentage hiring matches the 33% of June 2011, and the two reflect the highest hiring levels since September 2008. The percentage letting go is the lowest since June 2008.”
