Would like to see the footnotes explaining where and how and WHAT is behind these numbers in these charts. 10,000 people a day have been reaching retirement age for quite while now. 

Just like your full-time and part-time charts that had no info behind them. The gov full and part-time charts did have the vuluntary and involuntary part-time jobs. 

I worked 2 jobs for 23 years and my employers both let me work from home when it was needed to care for my husband. They also let workers share jobs if they had small children, sick spouses, they were caring for parents or other relatives. 

Figures can lie and liars can figure. Need the facts behind them.

The bottom line: this disappointing labor report will keep interest rates low, a bummer for most of us who frequent this site.
