Happy Easter: The Energizer Bunny Economy
Since January 2002 when civilian employment bottomed out at 135.7 million following the 2001 recession, more than +10.5 millions jobs have been added to the U.S. economy (see graph above, click to enlarge), despite record trade deficits, globalization, outsourcing, offshoring, etc. At that pace of job creation, U.S. employment has increased by:
5,780 new jobs every day for the last 5 years
240 new jobs every hour
4 new jobs every minute
1 new job every 15 seconds
In just the time it takes to read this post, at least several new jobs will have been created somewhere in the U.S. economy.
