Congress needs to press Yellen on mistaken rate hike | TheHill

The employment rate of 25-to-54-year-olds fell 4.8 percentage points during the downturn and has only recovered 2.8 percentage points since then. This means that over six years after the end of the recession, the labor market is still less than three-fifths recovered. If we continue making up ground at the same pace as since the beginning of the recovery, we won’t fully recover until 2019.
