Interesting Employment Chart
This chart was prepared by Oregon Economic Analysis (http://oregoneconomicanalysis.com/2014/06/06/u-s-jobs-are-back-to-pre-recession-levels/).
Many have been frustrated by the slow pace of economic and labor force recovery since the financial crisis of 2008. However, compared to other financial crises, the recovery actually appears to be remarkable, despite all the ideological angst that has been expressed over the last five years. The recovery in the US over the last five years has dramatically outpaced recoveries after other financial crises.
I tried to copy and paste the chart here, but my technical skills are not "advanced" enough:) If someone can give me directions how to do that, I can put the chart in one of the comments.
