The scariest jobs chart ever


That's what Business Insider calls this graph which depicts Calculated Risk's comparison of today's jobs "recovery" to past ones. "As you can see, we're still not even close to catching up with the pace of past recoveries," writes Joe Weisenthal.

Weisenthal also points to two disturbing numbers that stand out from today's job report:

The average duration of unemployment jumped to 39 weeks in March, from 37.1 in February.

Wages, which had been improving a little bit, stalled out and were flat month over month.

Both show ongoing slack.
