I think you need to re-read that, as that was not over one week, but a 4-week moving average. By the way, aren't job gains the amount of new jobs - lost jobs?

didn't you just ask this? well I can cut and paste too? first off... that's a four week average, the 330k... not just one week but I will agree that the 74k new jobs were lower than we want or need... and we were losing over 600k in initial claims in 2009... and were negative in jobs... that's more than a 50 percent decrease in initial claims and well into positive numbers for new jobs...from where Obama started EDIT: lol.. you've misread it many times for years... the second sentence of your link says "The 4-week moving average"... you mean you read the headline? EDIT: your numbers don't even make sense then... that would be adding over a million in the month, but if you look at the total number in that same report... it's only 4 million and the historic numbers didn't shift... and I don't think a million people a month are equally leaving unemployment are they?

One of the weird things that amazes me is that when a person's unemployment benefits run out, they are no longer counted among the unemployed since (in my state) unemployment is measured by how many people are collecting unemployment. It is amazing how our government claims that unemployment is dropping when much of the drop in the number of people collecting unemployment benefits is simply being caused by people's unemployment benefits running out.
