Percent of People Employed

From a post of John Stossel "President Obama touts, "The lowest unemployment rate in over five years," but it's only because many gave up work. The percent of people employed is flat"

I tried to find another source for this.  I found this.

There must be a total people who are employable statistic somewhere.  That should be able to get you the Stossel graph.
