What they are NOT saying ...
Most of these jobs were PT (less than 35 hours/week
Most were temporary/seasonal jobs
Most were MINIMUM wage
Also unemployment number jumped in January .... Even more so when you count in those working several PT jobs to meet bills or have dropped out of the work force altogether.
