Those are mostly part time summer jobs. So i think that brings the number down to only about 11,760,000 still out of work.

Too bad we couldn't get some private sector jobs. Government jobs put people to work but it only makes costs go up so it doesn't help much. I am glad to see gov. jobs are down, actually.
