Fuzzy math

Ok I have a Florida public Edumication, but

Employers shed only 11,000 net jobs while the unemployment rate fell from 10.2 percent to 10.0 percent.

So what is it with this part?

The losers for the month were the usual suspects: construction (-27,000) and manufacturing (-41,000). The service sector had a small gain (58,000), but retail trade (-15,000) was down as retailers did not staff to usual "holiday shopping" levels.

Stay with me here

27,000 + 41,000 = 68,000

58,000 - 15,000 = 43,000

68,000 - 43,000 = 25,000


Math is not fun. But green things are.

And don't waste my time calling me a racist, cause I aren't. So there!
