Thats what Obama says because we lost "less Jobs" http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090808/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_obama_health_care So maybe you guys can help me understand this, because I'm really not that smart. Here is my situation. I own a business and I had 10 employees. Earlier this year I had to let 3 of them go because business had slowed. Then about 2 months ago, I had to let 4 of them go because i really had to cut back as we were not bringing in any money. Last month, I thought that I couldnt afford my last 3 employees and I would have to let them all go, but it turns out I only had to let 2 of them go. So does that mean my business is recovering since i still have 1 employee left? I mean next month if I have to let that last employee go, surely that means that business is picking up because thats only ONE job lost instead of the past months where i had to let 2 or 3 or 4 people go, right? I mean did i understand that correctly? Like I said though. I'm not really that smart.
