    These numbers are useless.

    A college was a FT law professor who at 63 was laid off three years ago and now that 75% of all faculty jobs are taught by PT adjuncts teaching contract to contract with no security, benefits or research funds, the probability of him finding another FT professorship is zero to none. Part time jobs are not the same as FT jobs regardless of what this report says and replacing a career as a law professor with one as PT adjunct is not job replacement.

    Who ever writes these reports needs to break them out by industry, income, education so we can compare apples to oranges or what is the point? Also, does this report include those who cannot find jobs, have given up looking, working PT not FT or making far less than they were before? And lets not mention how they will never make up career-wise for lost time and income.

    Doesn't it seems like GDP numbers and the jobs numbers are always revised later though? Seems like the initial numbers get a lot of press coverage and then the later revised numbers are ignored. Why is that?
