21. I looked at it too fast. 62.7 62.9.

The same amount of people are working today, as per the LFPR, as when Donald Trump was inaugurated:

Republicans instructed us that was the most important measure of employment. It hasn't budged. Even if we go with the 12/17 figure of 62.7%, an increase of two tenth of one percent is unimpressive. A lot of people in their fifties and sixties left the labor force during The Great Recession and they're never coming back.
