All private sector jobs lost during O's presidency have been replaced!

http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/05/04/478368/478368/


As of April, there are now more private sector jobs in the United States than there were in January 2009, when President Obama took office. You read that right. We have now replaced all of the private sector jobs lost while Obama has been president. And that was no mean feat, given that over the course of 2009, the private sector shed about 4.2 million jobs.


I can't figure out how to post the amazing chart. I hope someone will include it.


That's awesome.

1. We need another 5 million or so jobs to account

 

for natural population growth during 3 years.

And why not count public sector jobs?

rpukes.

2. And how many of those replaced jobs are Living Wage Jobs?

 

You know, that were Living Wage Jobs when they were "lost" and are now Living Wage Jobs again?

4. Well, its a pretty good start, at least

high unemployment inevitably depresses wages and hours, but both of those have been improving this year as well.
