In the last few days a lot of attention has been paid to the disappointing jobs report that came out on Friday. NPR's "Tell Me More" did a nice segment breaking down the different sides of the numbers - youth unemployment, jobs created, job seekers dropping out of the search, differing numbers for women / men, African American unemployment, and more.
Why do you think the recovery is slow? Have you seen the labor participatory rate change in your own life? Or do you have a success story that flies in the face of the latest jobs report?
