Employment: Bad News and Good News

Who would have thought when I started this Blog some five years ago that we would still be in the woods. Well I did given the folks who were taking charge. So no surprises, just a lost decade or two.

Now 7.6% is not good. Not good at all. But the percent of the population employed has increased, not to where it should be but more than what it was. And then increase is sustained at a positive level. It took 3 years to go from 42% to 43%. We need to be at 45%. That means another six years at this rate! Unless we find another Reagan.
We see a gap but a narrowing gap in the above. Again another six years to close at this rate.
The same as the above. Well just sit back and watch the corn grow.
