Gallup CEO and Chairman Jim Clifton said on Thursday that the "number of full-time jobs, and that’s what everybody wants, as a percent of the total population, is the lowest it’s ever been."

"The other thing that is very misleading about that number is the more people that drop out, the better the number gets.

"In the recession we lost 13 million jobs. Only 3 million have come back. You don’t see that in that number," Clifton said.
