What industries in the U.S. have experienced the greatest job losses and job gains since 2008?
The  economy  is down 6.3 million  jobs  since 2008 with the greatest  job losses  coming in  construction and manufacturing . No surprise there.

While  President Obama  talks about an  economic recovery he says is  taking place, albeit slower than he is comfortable with, the numbers on the  jobs  front seem to tell a different story.

The story being told is one of an  economic malaise  that has left the  economy around 12 million  jobs  light assuming that instead of losing 6.3 million  jobs  over the past three years close to 2 million per year should have actually been created!
