Could it be that some jobs are never advertised, but just filled from friends and family?
Could be. I would first go after how "hires" and "job openings" are calibrated.
Whatever the answer, the result as drawn is absurd on the face of it. Why I only noticed it this month is another question that demands answers.

Public Housing Agencies Push to Impose Time Limits, Work Requirements for Aid Recipients - Yahoo! Finance
The result is that people endure long waits to qualify for the program and sometimes celebrate almost like lottery winners when they get the word. In New York City, the average person stays in public housing for 20.7 years.
But President Barack Obama's fiscal year 2014 budget calls for "substantial expansion" of a 1996 demonstration project that allows select housing authorities to set restrictions on residents, or try other strategies to promote self-sufficiency. Only 39 housing authorities out of 3,200 nationally have this power currently. Congressional approval was required for each one.

The US Regulatory Vice Closes On Bitcoin | Zero Hedge
FTA: Since the ruling, at least three companies in North America have reported having their business accounts closed by their banks. Bitfloor, a New York-based Bitcoin exchange, said it was shutting down entirely, and it has not yet been able to return funds to customers.
What idiots. They think they are going to increase their power in the situation by driving all of the exchanges offshore? Good luck with that strategy.

Real GDP returned to the pre-recession peak in Q4 2011, and has hit new post-recession highs for six consecutive quarters.
Real personal income less transfer payments might be the last major indicator to return to pre-recession levels (excluding the spike last December).
So the increase in real GDP is due to unreal people.

I don't think enough people realize this: It is usually best to get a high-deductible medical plan. You pay out-of-pocket, but at the rates negotiated by the insurance companies, which is a helluva better than the off-the-street price.
(Yes, MGH = Mass General.)
the real question is whether the IRS knows.
It's far more insidious than that: The money is reported, but the effect is to maximally screw patients for what they can afford to pay.
It was no surprise that 50% of all bankruptcies were medically related, before the housing bubble collapsed.
... so, do doctors, labs and hospitals actually charge cash customers that ridiculously huge amount that the insurance companies miraculously reduce when they pay part of a claim ??
This has been true for at least 20 years.
I'm not talking backwater places, unless you consider MGH backwater.

There is a lady in our complex who has redone her place to the nines. They lost the big house in the burbs, which they also did up to the nines. Just couldn't afford most of it after one job loss and her husband no longer getting over time. She seems to need to "look" better financialy than they are, like she is making up for something.
Not sure I am explaining it well.
Your explanation is great: The lady did up to the 9s + 9s, bet on everything coming up 7s + 11s, but instead rolled box cars (6+6) which deep-sixed her plans.
She has a bad case of the 18s.
