Since the recession ended we have added 3.8 million jobs but are 5 million short from the pre-recession level (it doesn't help that we've also had a surge in the "not in the labor force" category by over 10+ million). So this has helped the headline unemployment rate move lower even though the economy is still extremely sluggish. And of those added jobs, the top fields are in healthcare where services are going to older Americans with little to no savings. So how is all of this getting paid for?
