It’s been a little while since we’ve run this chart, but in honour of that bummer of a jobs report, we thought it would be time to bring it back.

It’s from Calculated Risk, and it shows the pace of this jobs “recovery” vs. that of all other post-recession jobs recoveries.

As you can see, the decline in jobs was far steeper than any other recession by a long shot.

And though generally job gains have picked up, in recent months, the pace of the recovery remains incredibly supbar.
