That shill, the New York Times, today touted a big increase in employment numbers. More signs of the recovery, they claimed.
WHAT recovery? Don't be fooled.
The economy needs to create 205,000 jobs a month to recover all the missing jobs by 2020. Look at that graph: IT's NOWHERE CLOSE to that!!!
Had the Republican-caused Great Recession never occurred, the economy would have created 9 million jobs between 2008 and 2015, bringing total employment to 155.3 million.
Instead, the economy currently has 148.9 million jobs, which means 6.4 million jobs are missing. 6.4 million people without work. ON TOP OF the existing unemployment rate, because those people stopped looking for jobs.
Worse: Today's labor force includes 2 million more part-time employees than it did prior to the Great Recession. The jobs being created are NOT GOOD JOBS.
