Friday, 08 July 2011 11:57 Written by

According to the Labor Department, nonfarm jobs rose by only 18,000 in June, woefully short of the 90,000 economists had predicted. To make matters worse, the May jobs increase was revised downward to a paltry 25,000. The disappointing numbers bumped the official unemployment rate up to 9.2 percent from 9.1 percent in May. To put these numbers into perspective, it takes between 125,000 to 150,000 new jobs created every month just to keep up with the increase in population feeding job applicants into the workforce pool.

Labor dispute should be over by Monday or Tuesday. There's a lot of legal work to be done for the final details involving billions of dollars.

NFL can't afford to miss any games and play will go on as usual this season.

NFL fears antitrust law suits. Hale Boggs and Russell Long threatened the league with antitrust legislation to get New Orleans an NFL franchise.
