Sure they were, you would have to be STUPID to not know that. Look at the data source:
The data came from the home survey, they use 60,000 homes. Subtract out the 114,000 job created from the US company survey, then part timers etc and at best you are leaving 600,000 out of 873,000 folks with jobs that came from where???
Now that data point came from 60,000 homes!!! So 10 people PER HOME went to work last month…Assuming all 60,000 homes had 10 people living there, all out of work and all went back at the same time.
Even the village idiot would not buy this. But if anyone believes this, contact me ASAP as I have got some really great buys on slightly used bridges for sale…
