The quality of the jobs being lost vs the quality of the jobs being created has become even more important than the bare up and down numbers.

Well paid jobs are being lost.
Large numbers of part time, minimum wage and low paid jobs are being created.

There are still 131,000 more full time jobs than there were at the start of the year.
But that's only 32,000 a month.
And probably more than half of those are low paid.
