What An Obama Economic Recovery Looks Like

As most us know, many of the people who were once unemployed simply dropped off the unemployed numbers and moved to the “Not In Labor Force” column. 

We also continually read about how we’re “recovering”.  So, I thought I would combine the unemployed with the ones “not in the labor force” to see if there has actually been a recovery.


Graph is in thousands.

Uhmm, no, there’s no recovery.
