450,000 companies and 300,000 jobs?
does that make any sense?

Maybe some of the companies did not have employees, and only consisted of one incorporated business owner?

If true its hugh.
I’m thinking that perhaps the number was 45,000 - or maybe - 4,500...

The numbers probably do not include business proprietors in the unemployed rolls when they shut their doors. For example, if my business closed it would not show up as a job loss. I’m a sole proprietor and do not collect unemplomnt so while I would in reality be jobless, I would not be included in the official jobless numbers.

I’ve been able to document 483 companies that closed their doors since the election, with zero reported jobs lost.

(The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.)
Many folks create their own personal companies as IT developers for instance with just them as employees and then they negotiate contracts with "actual companies". this has a benefit for the employers as they don't have to pay severence, medical, insurance etc. and this has a benefit for the 'employees' as they get more money in hand
i didn't do it here, but most people seem to want to do this -- i can't understand it though.
