I understand the desire for good times again Pete.
I just am trying to consider facts rather than government conspiracy theories
Long term jobs are much better than temporary jobs. However,temporary are better than NO job.
How do you feel about construction jobs? Many of those are temporary in nature as well (although a longer time than census temp positions).
the jobs data on Friday is probably going to take a huge hit with the loss of the temporary census workers. The interesting thing to see will be the number of private sector jobs.
