What Do the Job Numbers Really Mean?

It’s often too simple to judge job growth by the raw number of jobs gained or lost.  Laura Clawson of Daily Kos breaks down this month’s statistics in a way that we should consider.  I especially like a point she makes at the end of her article.  We went into a deep ditch quickly.  It’s unrealistic to expect a quick fix.  This point is supplemented by another of Clawson’s posts on the impact of the sequester.  I recommend them both as must reads.
