The Times Does Jobs 

This correction from today's New York Times:

An article in Business Day on Monday about the number of new low-income jobs compared with high-income jobs misstated figures from an analysis of Labor Department payroll data conducted by Economy .com, an economic research firm. Since January, industries ranked in the bottom fifth in terms of median wages have generated 177,000 jobs, not 477,000. Industries in the top fifth generated 135,000 jobs, not zero. (Go To Article.)

Gee, you think that makes a difference? The idea that roughly 20% of the American economy generated no new jobs just slipped by that editor.
