The key number in BLS report …

According to the BLS

The number of employed people dropped by 119,000

… from 142,220,000 to 142,101,000

So, how did the unemployment rate go down?

Simple.

The BLS estimated that 368,00 stopped looking for work

In other words, the denominator changed more than the numerator.

I guess if Team Obama can get more people to stop looking for work, we’ll have unemployment problem licked.

Hmmm.
