Pelosi - "Every Month That we do Not Have an Economic Recovery Package 500,000,000 Americans Lose Their Job's"

Nancy Pelosi might want to check her figures after saying that "Every month that we do not have an economic recovery package 500,000,000 Americans lose their job's."

Considering that according to the CIA World Fact Book the United States only has 155.2 million people in our labor force (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/us.html#Econ) we could be in serious trouble. Doing some calculations, more than 16,000,000 people must be losing their job's every day and more than 116,000,000 people must be losing their job's each week. By the middle of the second week of no action, not a single American will have a job!

Update (2/4/2009):
This is not the first time Pelosi made this mistake. Happens just after one minute in the video.
