Pior to the recent recession, the ratio was above 63%. Normally, the employment-population ratio moves in opposition to the unemployment rate, but not this year. In December, the unemployment rate began falling – but without a corresponding increase in the employment-population ratio.

Seems like there are plenty of Obama bashers in this thread, so let me ask you "republicans" this. The republicans ran on jobs in the campaigns for the 2010 elections. How many jobs bills have they brought to the floor? How about democrats? The right wing controls the house and senate, and now the blue dog, Obama seems to be moving further to the right of center than he already was.
Seems like the right is trying to kill the economy for nothing except so they can win more power back. They drove us to depression last time, so what do any of you expect the next time they have power? Make no mistake, this has been a depression.
We can't raise taxes on the job creators is what we are bombarded with daily from Boehner, Cantor etc. Yet the alleged "liberal" media has never asked where the jobs are since those job creators have had those tax cuts for 10 years now. Where are the jobs, republicans? How about the media do it's job?
