Here's How Many Jobs We Need to Add Every Month for the Next Four Years

Spoiler alert: We didn't come close last month...

Money Morning Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani joined Stuart Varney of FOX Business' "Varney & Co." today (Wednesday) to go over the bungled and belated September jobs report.

This month's Bureau of Labor Statistics' report, initially scheduled for release Oct. 4, was delayed until Oct. 22 on account of the government shutdown. But it looks like the extra days didn't help sort out jobs data – the BLS is now under fire for releasing numbers that simply don't add up.

Watch as Gilani makes sense of the confusing statistics for viewers. Hot in the discussion is the latest labor participation rate among women, which hit a 24-year low.

And don't miss Gilani's analysis of how many jobs we need to add to get the job market back to where it was pre-crisis:
