Core Employment vs. Population

  • Core employment first surpassed the level we are at today in January of 2000, 16 years ago.
  • Core employment hit a peak in January 2007 at 100.716 million.
  • Today, core employment is 3,133,000 below January 2007.
  • Today, core employment is 796,000 below the level 16 years ago.
  • Today, core population is 5,284,000 above the level 16 years ago

These awful numbers do not account for part-time workers. If you work as little a 1 hour a week selling trinkets on eBay, you are considered "employed".
