    335K more jobs for this "rotten" economy

    [url=ftp://ftp.bls.gov/pub/news.release/History/empsit.04062007.news] source [/url]

    Let's see, 146.3 million employed? That's 12.8 million more than at the end of the Clinton recession in Jan '02.

    And 1.2 million more than the labor force grew.

    Yup, W's economy sucks! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Does this take into consideration the multiple-millions of illegal/undocumented foreign nationals currently working in America?

    employement numbers in general are a joke. the IEC employment standards result in higher but more legitimate numbers. Im supoosed to believe that just because someone stopped looking for a job they are not unemployed?

    you are confusing the non farm payroll report with the unemployment rate. I believe asuusa was talking about nonfarm payrolls

    I havent looked up the data recently but I believe the labour participation rate is higher now too. Ill research that and get back to everyone here

    I don't know, but if they're included in data from employers used for these stats, then probably so!
