Job Statistics: Jobs Gap At 11 Million

May 7, 2012 3:46 am

We had spotted multiple unemployment statistics before – we spotted this today:

“The “jobs gap” is the number of people who need to find work in the U.S. economy before we return to pre-recession employment levels while absorbing new adult entrants, aging Millennials, and immigrants. In 2010, the jobs gap bottomed out at 12 million. After the best 12 months of job creation in five years, the gap is still about 11 million. That’s the current population of Ohio.”
