Hello Board, Sorry to bring this "off-topic" item to this board but I know there are many knowledgeable folks here who might know the answer to my question.

An AP news article today stated: "Since the recession began in December 2007, the U.S. has lost a net total of 5.7 million jobs. The nationwide unemployment rate now stands at 8.9 percent, a quarter-century high."

Later in the same article it stated: "Nearly 6.7 million people nationwide are drawing state unemployment insurance, the highest on records dating to 1967, the federal government reported Thursday."

My question is: How can 1 million more people be drawing unemployment than lost jobs?

TIA,Tom
