Members of President Obama’s jobs council convened on Tuesday in Pittsburgh, discussing ways to create jobs amid their own lukewarm record of job creation.

An analysis by ABC News found that the 10 largest companies represented on the Council on Jobs and Competitiveness have lost some 91,206 jobs since January 2009.

The purpose of President Obama’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness is “to provide non-partisan advice to the president on continuing to strengthen the nation’s economy and ensure the competitiveness of the United States and on ways to create jobs, opportunity, and prosperity for the American people.”
