Jobs: The Lost Decade

This article from Investor’s Business Daily reports that there were ZERO private sector jobs created in the last decade. That’s a sobering thought.

It’s been pretty widely discussed that the past decade was a lost one for job creation. But focusing on private payrolls alone would also wipe out nearly all of the employment gains from 1999, among the better years on record.

However there is a “bright spot” in this report:

Meanwhile, in case you were wondering, government jobs are up by 2.4 million since January 1999.

Not good news at all…
