Big surge in part-time hiring, and the discouraged workers huge numbers stay the same.

Look at the employed/unemployed numbers. If you get the number of employed UP by part-time hires, and you get the number of unemployed DOWN by dropping huge amounts of discouraged workers from the numbers altogether, then you have a lower number of unemployed with a higher number of employed and your rate falls.
