    "Labor doesn't check the Census hiring figure or whether the jobs are actually new or recycled. It considers a new job to have been created if someone is hired to work at least one hour a month."

    Guess they didn't hire and fire enough :D
  2. The federal government employs roughly 2 million people, excluding postal workers, as the first post following the articles states. That is correct. Millions of workers from the census???

    More important, this is the NYPost, a Rubert Murdoch venture. See other Murdoch ventures regarding accuracy and legitimacy of claims, ala FOXNews (LOL).
