chart time

Okay, so I was reading this article on how the jobs situation sucks, and I noticed something about the graph (shown below): in each recovery, the jobs growth rate is more anemic the further in time we go since the Reagan "Revolution" made it okay to be Prince John again. I'd love to see pre-1980 charts to see a wider spread of recoveries, just to see how the last thirty years compares to the rest of our history (or at least the rest of it that we've documented appropriately).
