As America Recovers The Jobs Lost During The Depression, Here Is What Sticks Out

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 05/02/2014

While we expect much media coverage of the fact that as of the end of April, total jobs have risen to 138,252K or just 98,000 jobs shy of the December 2007 highs when the depression started (which means that the next jobs report will finally show a full recovery of the jobs lost in the past 6 years), another fact which will not receive nearly as much attention is that the cumulative increase in Americans who have, over the same period, dropped out of the labor force has more than “made up” for the job gains. In fact, it may come as a surprise to most, that since the peak of the depression in February 2010, when the job number dropped to 129.7 million and has been rising ever since, the average monthly number of job adds is 172K.

And what about the average monthly number of people who drop out of the labor force since February 2010? 175K, or a virtually perfect mirror image.
