Lots of hiring by US based multinational companies that most does need jobs well they're not US based in Elizabeth MacDonald has not story that you might.
Despite you know -- you've been reporting this trend we've seen this trend for the last two decades and this isn't a red state blue state issue it's not a Republican or Democrat it's both.
And this is the reason why joblessness is so high 75%.
Of new jobs created by 35 multinationals according to the Wall Street Journal we created overseas and the other issue too with these numbers seven of those companies actually cut.
More US jobs.

And so you know and -- -- with this I mean the Commerce Department has seen this trend really tickled.
-- more jobs are created by companies US companies overseas vs -- that -- -- -- tax revenues coming from -- those workers and having to pay taxes.
I guess in their sovereigns or where they're living or does is there I know this is in -- political dial up right yeah that's right an 804 if you worked for those companies had three double taxation.

And the question for policy makers is do we see a permanent -- -- reduction.
And GDP is this Don -- in other words are we gonna see flat line growth to 3% going forward.
And how to create jobs and that's an area at the public over he's it's from new normal but it just might be that -- this might be about the threat that the face of the US economy looks like in -- -- pleasure.
