Are we creating enough jobs for our citizens?

That is a question I've had since 2003 when I first became unable to find work.
After digging into the data for nearly 20 years now I've come to the conclusion that I cannot use the Department of Labor data because it is based off of samples, and polling and doesn't actually count the unemployed
But there is one organization that counts every return and every penny which is the IRS, so we will use their databook reports to calculate job gains and losses.
And we will limit the numbers to the 1040 filers as that would be people working for somebody.

2020

In 2020 we had 157,195,302 total 1040 filings
In 2019 we had 154,094,555 total 1040 filings
This is a gain of 3,100,747 jobs and you can click here to see that report.
The temporary workers for 2020 have not been released yet, but in 2019 we had 2,558,973 temporary workers.

Are you beginning to see the same thing I'm seeing?
I can add all of the years that we have data for, and probably will at some point, but this is enoungh for now to show you why our homeless numbers are growing.
And why highly skilled people like myself cannot find work.
There is nothing racist or xenophobic about these numbers as they are simply math.
And I simply want to work in the country I grew up in and served in the military in as a citizen using my skills to contribute to society and do my part.
Shouldn't all of the people who are citizens have the same opportunity?
