Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX): “Commissioner, at this monthly rate of net 80,000 job growth, how long would it take for us to return to the unemployment levels before the recession?”

Bureau Of Labor Statistics’ Commissioner Keith Hall: “Well, the short answer is never. To keep up with just the population growth, you probably need – my estimate is around 130,000 jobs. So at 80,000, you’re not quite even keeping up with population, so in fact over a long time period, you might even see the unemployment rate edge back up.” (Joint Economic Committee, Hearing,, 11/4/11)
