Ooops! BLS Says "Jobs" Up 2.62 Million In Past Year, But # Of "Employed" Workers Up Just 1.43 Million

The discrepancy between the increase in jobs and the increase in employment is 1,191,000. On average, over the past year, that's a discrepancy of 99,250 every month, in favor of jobs......These distortions and discrepancies artificially lower the unemployment rate, artificially boost full-time employment, and artificially increase the payroll jobs report every month.
