Which is slightly less than 160,000 new jobs per MONTH.
Which pales in comparison to almost 380,000 new unemployment claims per WEEK!
4.3 million new jobs in 27 months.
160,000 new jobs per MONTH.
380,000 new unemployment claims per WEEK.
That means 39,800 new jobs per WEEK or about 1/10th of the number of jobs needed to get to even.
And, the 380,000 new claims only add to the 5.97 million currently getting unemployment benefits.
These figures, of course, to not take into account those who have exhausted benefits and are, thus, no longer counted in the UE3 figures.
This is a good example of Obama moving the goalposts. He's using the time frame of the so-called recovery, but he's been in office for about 40 months now. (And had a Dem-controlled Congress for his 1st two years.)
His administration's per-month "job creation" is more like 100k, so it's even more putrid than what he's claiming.
