Interesting graphic. However, if you look at the official total number of people "not in the labor force", posted at:

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.t16.htm

it was 86,168,000 in Dec. 2011 and 88,784,000 in Jan. 2012.

That's an increase of 2.6 million, not an increase of a measly 1.2 million.
