I am a 17 year old Business Owner from California. I had a question for you. I have found that there were 134,370,000 jobs in the economy at the end of 2008 (when Obama took office), and currently there are 134,245,000 jobs. Thats a loss of about 1M jobs, so why are statistics saying that he has lost 316,000 jobs when it seems to be around 1M? I greatly appreciate it Stephen. Thank you
