Fewer people are losing their jobs, which is great news!

But the labor participation rate (the number of people WITH jobs) has dropped steadily since BHO took office, down 3.3% or around 6 million workers.

So NET job losses are quite troubling.

Your metric, labor participation rate, is the key people should be focusing on (along with U6).
