Why is the stock market recovering at a faster pace than the job market?

The stock market is at its pre-recession levels. But the job market will take at least another 4 or 6 years to return to less than 6% unemployment.
Why is that not translating into companies expanding operations and hiring people?

We still have the same amount of jobs today as we did in January 2009. This is not a knock on Obama. Just wondering why the job market and the stock market do not go hand in hand.
If it is a leading indicator, it is lapping the Job Market.

This is what happens when you build and encourage an economy built on spending rather than investing…

Everyday you’ll hear an under-educated kid here preach how it is "demand" that drives the economy… and supply-side systems like "Reganomics" is a sham…

..but the simple fact is that it’s better to give $100,000 to give to a single person to start up a business than it is to give $1,000 to 100 different people…10,000 kids demanding iPhones does not add a single job to the US economy..

"Jobs" require "Job Creators"…. but in today’s world that’s a bad word… along with "Wealth" "Success" and "Accountability."

    No place else to get a decent return the Fed keeps interest rates so low the market has to go up.

    A goodly portion of the Wall St. cash comes from building factories in China, hence job losses. It’s all about greed. Those at the top get richer and everyone stagnates or loses.

    the capitalists make money whether workers starve or not.
    My investments are up well over 10 percent in less than three years. Those who merely work deserve no better because they are showing a lack of intelligence or initiative

    Companies have fewer employees working harder, therefore making the companies more profitable. Stock prices and dividends go up as result.
