There is a lot of controversy about jobs.  The Associated Press, with data from US Department of Labor, created a historical trend about jobs.

The graph below contrasts the historical trends of employment- unemployment, US job growth or loss and number of persons working from 1933 to 2010. Trends are correlated with presidential times in office.
