U.S. Won’t Recover Lost Jobs Until March 2020 At Current Pace

The U.S. economy lost 95,000 jobs in September, far worse than expectations for no change in employment. More Census-related temp jobs ended, as expected, but state and local governments slashed staff far more than predicted.
So far in 2010, the U.S. has added just 613,000 jobs — for a monthly average of 68,111.
Employment bottomed in December 2009 at 129.588 million — two years after peaking at 137.951 million. At this year’s pace, the U.S. won’t recoup all those 8.36 million lost jobs* until March 2020 — 147 months after the December 2007 high.
That would obliterate the old post-World War II record of 47 months set in the wake of the 2001 recession.
The current jobs slump also is the deepest of any in the post-war era, with payrolls down as much as 6.1%. They are still 5.6% below their December 2007 level.
