    So the true figure might be 114,000 maybe permanent jobs!
    Nope, 40,000 of those were for temp services:

    Temporary help services added 40,000 jobs in March. Since September 2009, temporary help services employment has risen by 313,000.
    Further, a good number of jobs were only part-time:
    The number of persons working part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) increased to 9.1 million in March. These individuals were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job.

    160,000 is a lot of paid Obama goons.

    keep in mind the economy needs to grow 125 to 200,000 jobs per month JUST TO BREAK EVEN WITH POPULATION GROWTH

    Jobless rate falls but another 20,000 jobs lost - Feb. 5, 2010

    hence, the UNEMPLOYMENT RATE remains dismally the same at NINE POINT SEVEN

    also, ominous signs ahead:

    housing saw 2.8 million foreclosures in 09, expects 4.5 mil in '10, this year, a 60% increase

    2009 was like a national dust bowl, now we're looking at 60% worse

    Housing market's recovery appears at risk - Boston.com

    Half of U.S. Home Loan Modifications Default Again (Update1) - Bloomberg.com

    equally foreboding are all these new bookings by the megacorps, at&t, verizon, deere, caterpilllar, 3m...

    their cost of simply staying in business has taken for each of them a billion dollar hit, or some good chunk of a full B

    AT&T to Book $1 Billion Cost on Health-Care Reform (Update3) - BusinessWeek

    Verizon Joins AT&T in Booking Costs From Health-Care (Update1) - Bloomberg.com

    these are extremely heavy downward pressures on hiring, pay, housing, lending and, of course, ultimately, consumer spending

    I like how conservatives are so partisan that they're actually looking for ways to explain how things aren't getting better.

    Nobody said everything is fixed. We've just made the turnaround into a positive growth and are on the way out of this mess. Light at the end of the tunnel, if you will.

    But hey, keep up your bashing all the way until November.

    I see it as a step in the right direction...nothing more. This country still has a long way to go, but the hiring (or rehiring) of over 140K new employees is never a bad thing no matter how anyone tries to it or dummy it down.

    Correct. The hiring (or rehiring) of over 140K new employees is a thing

    Taylor is just pretending he's not a partisan hack. The same guy who argued about people on the right not supporting terrorism. What did y'all expect ?

    1. the foreclosures, 4.5 million on the immediate horizon

    2. the cost of staying in biz, an extra 1B for mega's like at&t and verizon, due to obamacare, proportionately smaller hits for smaller supercorps

    3. the downward pressure on hiring, on pay, on expansion, on investment, lending, housing, spending and on GOVT REVENUE

    In the context of an economy that was shedding how many jobs just a year ago(800k was it?, too lazy to look this second), it's pretty damn good news. That is a close to 1 million job a month swing.

    No... it's been pretty stagnant for a few months. We hit bottom a while ago.
