But not everything is good news: Last month, another 11,000 public sector jobs were destroyed. Overall, since Jan. 2009, we've lost three-quarters of a million public sector jobs. And despite a growing population and 38 straight months of private sector job growth, during 26 of those 38 months, public sector employment has fallen.

The private sector is growing, and that's good. But austerity is dragging down the economy as a whole. Everybody would be better off without it.
